    This is a place where you can tell your junk yard finds. Big or small, a pocket full of fuses or an entire engine!

    I will get the par-tay started.

    I am doing a headlight mod on my lawn mower. Basically, wiring up a pair of 9007 bulbs so I have better vision and high/low beam :thumbsup:

    So I found 2 trucks that each had a directed audio remote start, with a PACK of relays each! So I got all these relays with harness and wiring.

    I also scored a small relay box from an exploder, It is wired for 2 large relays and 1 small guy. I will be using this for the high/low relays.

    real easy install. If you dont mind not having the light part. Its just a plug-n-play mod. I put them in my plow truck.

    Well, found my Explorer disc brake 8.8 for $200 with almost new calipers...Far as I can tell, that's a steal!

    My entire front end is made up on junkyard parts.

    hood, driver fender, both headlights and turn signals, grille, front bumper.

    Also my cluster, dome light, sun visors, glove box, Brake light, center console, Tailgate handles, driverside exhaust manifold, and more little parts then you can imagine.

    My 2003 FX4 level 2 seats came from a junkyard out in the midwest, my driveshaft came from a yard is west PA, and my airbag came from a yard in CA.

    Well I was at the only u pull it yard thats within like 30 miles of me today and I got a new rearview mirror (may have gotten mad while in the truck and punched it, causing the mirror to break and the arm to pop off the one section) a ****load of fuses =) the cover that goes over the obd2 plug (never had mine) and chrome door lock pole things from a bronco 2! $5 dollars!!!
    May have pocketed the fuses though..
