I would look in Lakeland. There are lots and lots of junkyards in Polk County. Try going to car-part.com first and see what you can find. I bet you'll be able to find something a lot closer to you.

BTW, you couldn't find anything in Hillsborough Co? There's lots of good yards with truck stuff....

Lots of yards around here but from what I've seen most of have nothing in the way of "older" parts. By older I mean anything oler that 2000 for trucks. If you know of any I'd like to know cause there's some parts I'm looking for too and don't want to pay new.

Like I said in my last post, try car-part.com. You should be able to find what you're looking for. If you still can't find anything get your hands on a Polk Co. phone book and make some calls.

Zainy,
I just re-read my earlier post and it reads like I got a bur up my butt or something. Didn't mean to come off like that, sorry.

Jrd, last time I was at Cophers the only Ford truck, and I mean the only one, was a well picked over 87-91 F150 2wd. Thank goodness I was just looking for a wheel for a spare, there was one left. May have to swing by there again, see if anything new has come in.

Broncoska,

Just remember that Copher's is a U-pull-it yard so have your tools handy in case you need em. IIRC the last time I was there it was $1 maybe $2 to get on the yard so have some small change handy too. Let me know how they're fixed for Bronco/F150s. Thanks

Broncoska, come up 95, take the International Speedway Blvd (US92) West exit in Daytona, go 1 mile, there is a Upullit on the left. I usually see a BW1356 or two when I go. They have a high turnover, and usually have at least 2 or 3 4wd ford trucks, usually only 1 Bronco.


Here it is, bottom left of the picture.

The Fords are the top right block of cars of this pic...
The line without cars is where they removed them all the previous day, and fill them in that night with new arrivals.

Broncoska,

As far as I know its all battery and wrist, if its different I'd like to know cause I need a radius arm bracket for the passenger side. as for a ride Monday I would like too but I have to work Sun - Wed 8pm-7am. I'm at work now cause I had last Sun off and worked Mon-Thur this week. Thurs are a killer cause I have class Wed night from 6-9pm, I make up the time I was late on the back side of my shift. I was here till 9 am then had to be back at 8 pm. The problem is I got a 45min drive on each end of this, homework from class, am not used to nights (just started), and trying to sleep in the day sux but I gotta sleep sometime.

Only 1.5 hrs left of my shift then I'm off till Sun :chili:

a friend of mine was there about a month ago, and they had a couple 1 tons with 60/10.25s for like 400. he also got his solid 44 with everything except the brackets for 200. so they have stuff, you must have been at a bad time
