    Was at LKQ on federal and they have quite a few squares there. One was a just set out 79 3/4 ton burb, small block, th400, 203, 10 front 14ff rear. Figured I'd mention for the 32 spline 203...

    Also had another 73 I think with the 205 (27 spline) just sitting in the bed, ready to pick up. Adapter was there too.

    Was at Aurora U Pull and Pay recently, not much doing there and Peoria LKQ was the same.

    May be a long shot, but did you notice if that 79 burb's 3/4 ton axles were 4.10 gears or not?

    Also, denver U Pull and Pay had a couple squares, nothing too exciting except there was a 90 suburban with a super clean front clip.

    Did not check that. The above mentioned 90 burb was also 3/4 ton, had a few brake parts missing. Did not check gears on that one either.

    @CK5, FWIW, it does seem like the peoria LKQ has the highest frequency of pre 73 trucks. I don't recall seeing any this last go around, but they pop up there more than any other yard.

    That is why I am mentioning it. I can't afford to buy anything that I don't need right now. Someone else should snag it.

    LKQ on Federal has several squares again. @CK5 there were 3 early trucks and 2 were 4WD. All were 3/4 ton. 1 4wd had front disc... All had eaton rears.

    3/4 79 burb is still there, 400 and 32 spline 203 were pulled, but still on the ground.

    LKQ on peoria has a 32 spline 205 behind a 400.

    Both u pull and pays were less active, but the denver one had a late model sqaure burb that was 3/4 ton, drivetrain still there.

    Good stuff, around here seems like the early squares are picked of decent gold before they hit the yard.

    Well unless you are looking for stuff other than square body things, skip it

    LKQ on Peoria had a handful of squares, looks like most of the good stuff was picked though.
