    It seems that most salvage yards strip the common parts out of Tacos then crush what remains. Makes sense, but kinda frustrating. :(

    i had no luck with "Part Wanted" postings online & many many phone calls to yards around the country.

    After having no luck with my searching for a small electronic component from coast-to-coast i found this place...

    If any of you guys & gals need a hard to find part, but want to avoid the dealership prices you may have luck with A & G like i did.
    Their website is lacking, but they were great on the phone.
    Kudos to them. :D

    I remember growing up my father and I would hit those places. Pretty neat and alot of knowledge.
    I know of two location where you can go and pick your parts, both times I have seen 1st and 2nd generation Tacomas. One is here in Indianapolis, I believe it is called "pick your parts" the other, don't have a name for it but it is in TENN. Blountville area.

    I'm still toying with the idea of attempting a 4x4 conversion. If I could find a suitable doner car, I wonder how hard it would be.
