    Why are the good deals on used parts never near me! It seems like all the cool used stuff in AZ, CA, or TX. If I could get some of the cool stuff i see all the time on the cheep I'd be done already. And if anyone in F'ING GUAM needs a NEW D60 front let me know. I can't win.

    It's just Murphy's law at work. If'n you're on the left coast then all the good deals you find are on the east coast and vicy versy.

    Its the same rule, as when you do finally find that killer deal you have been waiting for, you have no extra money in the bank.

    I feel bad because I just threw away a 10b limited slip and D44 at the junk yard because nobody would buy them! Even to give them away online wouldn't be worth it because I'd have to pay some big money for the gas to drive them somewhere for shipping... Now I have a 700R4 mated to an NP241 sitting around that I fear will face the same fate!

    I thought you got rid of the 241 already?

    I can always use an extra 241. Just destroyed the rear yoke on mine over the weekend.

    Like I said, good parts for sale in TX. There are 3 of them for sale in CA on Pirate right now, too. Here I sit, 241-less. Thanks for proving my point.
