Do you bring what you want to the office for a final package price then?

they have a set price on things for a given part. Lets say your looking for a throttle body... it could be off a jeep, a civic, mustang, etc. same price. There is a list on the wall in the building before you head out that is alphabetically organized.

I was at Taylor auto salvage today and they have about 7 YJs, one or two TJs, and more XJs and ZJs than I cared to count. Most were victims of C4C

They had one XJ with a newer 3 inch Rancho lift on it. And for anybody who might be interested, they had two whole WJs with the complete steering system on them for a nice upgrade.

I have done some work for the owners of E&M and can usually get a good deal from them now. Previous to working with them they were a rip. If you want a part i can give the guy a call and get a price and he doesnt try to bait and switch anymore he considers me a "friend." Barely know the guy tho

thanks.
I was pulling a part on a wrangler there once and the yard guy says don't crawl back there, we'll dig it out so you can get at it. then wanted to add a charge for having to move a bunch of vehicles. I told him that I did not ask you to do it. nor is it my fault your yard is poorly organized.

E&M are scammers. You can describe what you are going to pull in 500 words, show them a picture, ect and they will go "oh, that, I didn't think you meant that, it is 3x what I quoted you for the same thing you just described" Taylor on the other hand is A+ in my book.
