    Sounds familiar..

    Some of the junkyards here have the same policy lately..especially the ones that HAVE the good stuff!..like you said--they will pay short money for a car or truck right before your eyes--then refuse twice as much if you make an offer...

    One place I used to go to at least weekly has been taken over by the son,and the father is still "playing" at the yard,but is "retired",and you have to ask the son for prices--and he is charging a LOT more than his dad did!--and sells stuff he knows has been sitting too long,like tranny's full of water,etc,or just plain wont fit (wrong year,or some other problem)..and refusing to give cash refunds--now they will only give you another part(if they have it,or can get one from another yard),or "merchandise credit" toward something else..many guys I know dont want to go there anymore!.

    They act like its no big deal,and since scrap price is high now,they just assume send the trucks and parts to the crusher,than sell it tosomeone,and have to deal with warrantees and complaints!.(and a good deal of trucks HAVE been scrapped--and all the transfer cases and tranny's they had piled up like cordwood are gone too,plus about 250 differentials!). :mad1: --

    I know what you mean about the plow setup!--I see stuff like that all the time in the yards around here--but they would want 800 bucks if I wanted to buy it..even though they only paid 200 for the whole truck and plow.. :surepal: ..I see a lot of good stuff wasted and destroyed there too..yet once in a while I go there,and come out with 200 bucks worth of stuff,and they charge 40 bucks! :bow: :screwy: :screwy: :confused: :crazy:
