    I was just sitting at my desk thinking of the old parts from my truck that I have given away. This got me wondering not only about where those parts are, but how many others have done the same. upgrading parts from their truck and donating the old to help with the builds of others. So, If you have any of my old parts (I have given away my running boards, UCAs and front strut assemblies), let me know how they are doing. If you have given away, or received donor parts from members, let's hear about that too.

    BTW, if anyone needs a set of stock leaf spring from a 1st gen DC, please let me know, they are taking up valuable space in my garage. ;)

    I gave all my spare parts to my neighbor when I had to turn my First Gen in for the buyback.

    *Moment of silence*


    A year later, he had to turn his in. I should have just trashed them.

    Maybe someday. I think that it will take some beer and quality time in the garage thinking of a plan.

    Sold my truck Jan '13... Still hang around.
    My original chrome bumper is on a truck in Louisiana. At a time when I thought I was going to paint one black, I bought a spare chrome bumper... which I later sold to a TW guy here in Alabama.

    The grill on my truck is from New York... the original is hanging in my shed. (I plan to try the satoshi on that one before trying it on my only color-matched grill.) If I do it right, I'll be selling it to anybody who is interested...

    The front floor mats that came in my truck were sent to.... somewhere... I can't remember, but they went in the Pay It Forward thread.

    My stock radio is riding around in somebody else's ride (again, I can't remember where), while I listen to another member's 6-disc radio that I picked up for pretty cheap.

    I have a set of spare tail lights sitting around b/c I bought another member's BTLM lights a few weeks ago.

    Early on I bought a used camper shell from a TW member right here in Birmingham, but when I didn't use it much I sold it to a guy who drove up from Kaplan, LA.

    I also bought a set of TRD seat covers, but when I decided they were too hot in the summer I sold them to somebody here and replaced them with some Wet Okole's from a group buy.

    My OEM wheels are in a shed at my parents' house... replaced this christmas by KMC Enduros. I don't know what I'm going to do with them.

    (If any of you who sold to or bought from me want to chime in and tell people where this stuff is, feel free. I can't remember much, apparently.)
