Default 88 YJ Build

So I purchased an 88 YJ with a solid frame. Needs some body work, body mounts etc. Plan is a big motor and bigger axles...

Before I get into the build thread, does anybody know a few junkyards worth noting for Jeep parts? I am in Bloomfield Hills (oakland county) so the closer the better..but I can travel too. I ran a search and couldn't find anything.

I appreciate any help I can get. Thanks.

40 views and not one person knows of a couple decent junk yards for Jeep parts? Very supportive...

You are not going to gain favor by being a jerk. Side note: Jeep parts fly fast out of junkyards, you are best looking at the for sale forums here, and perhaps on car-part.com

Also, the interweb likes pics and specs on a build thread. I hope your Jeep project goes well!

Yeah sorry if I came off as a jerk, used to my Mustang forum where you post a question and get an answer within an hour. My bad.

Yeah the Jeep is purchased and selling my 06 GT to lease a CTS and put $4-5K into the build. I will post some pics of the truck as it sits now.....
