    Rockauto.com for parts should you choose to go that route. Parts are much chaper than places like Autozone.

    I put my son in a 2000 ranger 4x4 about two years ago, I bought it out here from a elderly man that couldn't drive any longer. It 62,000 on the clock when I bought it and now it's just over a 100,000.
    The more I think about it and a peek online they still are worth good money.

    Other than the clear coat peeling it's been a good truck so far.
    No one cares.

    Kars for Kids is good if you wish to give to a charity that only helps the children of Orthodox Jews, mostly in New York and New Jersey.

    I can'y say I have ever seen a poor Orthodox Jew.
    If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.

    My direct paternal great grandfather was well to do before the Market Crash in 1929, owned one of the first private automobiles in Springfield, MA.
    After, he was solidly lower middle class. I think my great grandmother died of her liver ailment in 1931 because they could not afford the proper medical care.

    She's buried in the Orthodox cemetery in my hometown of West Springfield, MA.
    He's buried in an Orthodox cemetery in LA, where he moved as part of the household of one of his children in 1936.
    Take care - Steven

    Clutch is a cheap drive way fix
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    “Moral precepts are constant through the ages and not obedient to circumstances.”

    I don't mind. I just wanted it out of my driveway. It's either Orodox Jewish kids, or Jethro's "it'll eventually be fixed" car collection.

    Yep, and not that bad of a job if it's been powerwashed before working on it.

    I was looking for one like that recently...found a '91 Toyota 4x4 instead. Just needed a reliable beater that could also handle the regular round trips to the airports. My ole 2000 Grand Cherokee was just too far gone..

    So...since I already have a replacement car...and I don't want to spend the $$ to do the repairs, WHO is So Md buys salvageable cars and will come flat-bed my loyal Ranger?

    I used to donate my retired vehicles but the 'Tax credit' now means zip.
    Any reputable salvage operations in SoMd? What GOOD experiences have you had? Contacts?
    Another option is to consign it to one of the large auto and equipment auctions held at Flat Iron Farm in Great Mills about three times a year. I recently scored $1000 for my old 2000 Grand Cherokee showing 196,000 on the clock. It ran good..but had a ton of problems ranging from minor to major pita.
