Just moved - any bone yards in New England?

It's been a long and horrible moving trip (should have taken 14 hours with breaks) that lasted 3 days! I'm finally in the New England area working in the New London area of Connecticut. I have my operational rolling project YJ in full use and I need to start part hunting for the eventual frame up rebuild I intend to do. So if anyone knows some good junk (another man's treasure) yards in the New England states I'd appreciate the heads up. I don't mind driving a hundred miles or so either. Makes for a good weekend. Besides my wife likes to hook up the trailer and go "barn" sale shopping for antiques and such.

Howdy and welcome to New England.

I can't tell you of any good bone yards off hand, but I can tell you of a place in Holyoke, MA called Endangered Species Jeep that has a ton of used parts at good prices. So if there is anything that you're looking for, they are worth a call. Their web address is http://www.endangeredspeciesjeep.com.

If you end up in Western Mass. looking for some trails to run, get in touch with me.

If you don't like the way I'm living, you can just leave this long-haired country boy alone.

Post that on the Zuki BBS, there are a few guys I run with that live in your area and know where all the yards are.

Welcome to NE, where did you come from?

There is a nice yard in Lancaster, MA that has a lot of YJ's, contact <font color=blue>mxnhid</font color=blue> on the Zuki BBS, he works there.

A-Rite auto parts in New Britian specializes in Jeep only stuff. You can contact them but prices seem on high side.

Welcome to New England indeed. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I work about 50 miles north of you up 395, and live just over the border in MA. I can give you some places in Worcester, MA - one real u-pick-it yard, and some other yards that have some Jeep stuff in them.

Drop me an email if you're interested.
