Salvage yards in MI IL IN, or online search?

I am looking for:

1) salvage yards near Grand rapids, MI including all of MI, norther Inidiana, and south Illinois. Jeep specialties a plus, but normal salvage yard will do.

2) An online search for salvage yards

I am still trying to find a 92-95 YJ roll bar "locally" with no luck. Dealer wants $411 + tax. That's too much.

Re: Salvage yards in MI IL IN, or online search?

lmodyj: Thanks for the car-part link, I use that often. However since there is not a direct search for salvage yards, only parts, I have not had good luck. Am I missing a certain way to search for only salvage yards on the site? Also, there is no real way to search for roll bar except via interior parts.

Online search try www.junkyards.com
They have a list of junkyards by state, most with phone #'s. Also try looking up wrecking yards in yahoo yellow pages. It will tell you yards, phone #'s and distance to them.
Have you tried to build your own cage? A local welder should be able to do it for less that what the dealer wants.

Wabash Jeeps is the greatest.
They had my bump stops I was looking for, Babypoo.

Glad could help...now the name...well it's the color of my Jeep I don't know what the factory called it but I believe it was only available in 97' and they discontinued it due to public response (it's an ugly color) but it grows on you like a fungus.
