Place to buy parts in Washington State

Howzit all,

In cold rainy Washington right now and looking for a place to buy some stuff for my ranger. Looking for a good wrecking yard. Jus need a few interior and exterior pieces, nothing serious. Does anyone have advice or a recommendation as to where a good wrecking yard would be? I did run into two ********* that wanted to charge me new prices for used parts. Gave em both the bird and need to find a place where some moron isn't gonna try to play games and rip me off thinking I'm some stoopid tourist. Anyway, all help is greatly appreciated. Thanx

FYI this is a family site. You might want to change the language a bit in your post.

if your near spokane washington their is pull and save, but you have to pull all the parts off the vehicle yourself and its like 5 bucks to get out onto their yard. and they are really cheap for that reason

Boy, thanks DAD for reminding me. Why don't you zip it and spend your time on your own kids? Heck I'm probably old enough to be your dad (and good thing I'm not!).

BTW, I'll continue to curse like a sailor, or a pirate arrrrrrrrrrrr

James, I am on the eastern side of the state and I don't know much about the Everett area but I am sure whatever you find would be great. The greater Seattle area is big enough that you should fairly easily find what you are looking for. As for how they treat you I'm not sure but I guess you could always leave and go somewhere else. Sorry I couldn't help.

I've heard of a couple places up in the north there but the only one I've been to is out by monroe. You obviously have internet access so I'd look it up online 'cause there's only one guy on the site who's closer than I am to Everett.... I know there's 2 or 3 within 30 minutes of there just don't know what or where... sorry

EDIT: Took me 30 seconds to find this one....

im the guy right next to everett, lol. and as far as my search has led me, theres nothing worth going to around here. there's a junkyard in marysville that specializes in ford ranger parts, but the prices there are ridiculous. i refuse to go there, and will not recommend that place to anyone.

i went in there once looking for a factory fog light switch, and they wanted to charge me about $35 for a switch! went on ebay and got it for $.99!

Thanks for the heads up. Didn't find a damn thing. Nobody had anything and anybody that did, wanted an arm and a leg for it. Example, my ol ladies head unit in her RAV-4 went out. The thing is tape/CD. A yard in Bothel wanted $250 and couldn't even guarantee that it would work. I'm dissapointed in WA. Where are the junk police to stop these thieven bastards

Thanks to all the Washington and Oregon folks that tried to help. Next trip up (probably in March/April) gonna do the surf/wetsuit/freezing cold thing and see if I can hit some of the Junkyards in and around Grants Pass. Thanks all.

I have two that are close to me and im in port angeles they will let you search the yard but you gotta pull the part yourself if you find it.

Im looking for the round fog lights for an 08 ranger i think any year before will work but im not sure.

Port Angeles....hmmmm, parts+surfing= MY IDEAL PLACE TO VACATION. Subtract the ol lady and her "need 4 culture" and I can actually enjoy the trip. See some of you in March/April, maybe sooner
