Junkyard needs?

I am going to start hitting a few junk yards around me atleast once or twice a month, anything in particular I should look out for that people could use from here?

I wont pull engines or anything major (but can pull engine parts depending on what it is), but if its say the ohc mod stuff, headlight lenses, clusters, etc. no problem.


I am not looking to make a killing if I do find something, just enough to help pay for the part and a lil for my time.

Let me know and I will start looking and keep a list with me in the truck when I do go.

I have a 2002 ranger 4x4 w/4.0 engine. It's a high mileage truck, just turned 366K. I just recently replaced the LH rear axil for the second time. Each time the bearing ate up the axil. I believe if the bearing was the old press on style this wouldn't be a issue. The Ranger bearings, the rollers actually ride on a machined surface with NO inner bearing race. Each time I got well over 100K miles of service on each so no complaints really. The RH rear has never had an issue and is still original so go figure. Of course bearings and seals were replaced on both sides when the axil shredded.

In general: Just pickup bucket seats, short center consoles, OHCs, and if you see a Ex Sport, look to see if the door speakers are the component type, they don’t sound too bad.
FX4 LvL II stuff, all stuff that is.
Anything like this will be a seller on this site.

For me… a Radio Bezel, 2WD, without a power port or Fog Light sw.
I am looking for as plain a radio bezel as possible.
No 4x sw, no pwr prt, no fog sw, and no cig light location, LoL, I don’t think you can find one without a cig lighter.

NO damage is preferable but minor scratches are ok if cheap enough.
thks.

I need a couple bulb holders for an '01 HVAC unit (I would take the whole unit too). O and a 4.0 SOHC Intake cover if you can find one in good shape. Let me know if you get them and how much you would want for them. Thanks in advance
