    We just picked up our "new to us" tailgate from Harold's Junk yard out of Briggs, Texas.
    Well I was expecting to pay $225 for the tailgate.. but since most of our parts have come from Harold.. and he know's us by face and name now..
    He sold us the gate for $150.00
    It was off a 1990 Blazer "freshly wrecked" in the front end.. It's power and it's perfect condition..
    Now it's just getting it wired to work along with the power seat ..
    Just had to tell someone about it.. our truck is finally coming along faster than we expected.. and it's not costing us much...

    Sounds like a pretty good deal if there is no rust. Good luck

    Bone, we didn't have a steering wheel puller, or we would have grabbed the wheel ourselves...LOL But if we do get one, we will let you know...This salvage yard we go to is a goldmine!

    Hey, what about the rear springs, I need stock rear springs from a 87' to 91' K5. If the price is reasonable, I'll be gladly to pay it and pay yall some extra for the work. Let me know.

    i need the little chrome thing that covers the screw that attaches the door-closing-strap. if the truck you're stripping has these, could you grab one or two for me? i use them as little stash spots, and the mounting tabs always break.
    if the interior is grey, i'll buy the rear seat belt set-up. specifically, the two parts that have the roll-up mechanism.
    happy hunting!

    Hey, if you guys do grab both of the rear springs, could you also get the U bolts and the plate that holds the springs down also?? Thanks
