They are popping up at salvage auctions here and there. They get snapped up by parts yards and for high dollars. My wife has followed bids on several and they get pricey in a hurry. Can't believe mine is almost 6 years old.

Thats sweet, but Im looking for a "Pick in pull" or "U pull" yard, do they even have those up here?


$8000 is to much of a gamble for me to get an A Pillar cover off and then try to resale it...

They don't really have any pull ur own up here I'm used to them as well. We had a ton in Chapel Hill area. I think the poverty levels up here are higher so more people part out their own rigs, and the rest get bought up by parts yards which pull em themselves and jack up the rates.

There is one in Charlotte north of town on hwy 29/49. You may also try talking to some of the salvage yards in your area about pulling it yourself. About half of them will let you if you hit them when they are busy. There are 2 salvage yards in China Grove/ kannapollis area that will let you. More likely they would have something from a newer model than the Pull A Part in Charlotte.

That sounds like a good option I imagine you call for inventory. I am willing to bet that there are some in tn.
