    I'll bet there's a youtube video showing how.

    Went in on a ford dealers parts department with a friend on Sat. Couldn't be happier. found out after we bought it that it just went through inventory for the bankruptcy. They had 250k worth of parts in the building. We got basically all of that minus 20 jeep hitches and 15 bed liners.

    Only a small portion is mine but id say we did pretty good on the deal. When I figure out how to do photo's without photobucket i'll share some pics.

    Ended up filling a 26ft uhaul plus my truck and trailer. Still need to go back for one more truck and trailer load. Good thing most stuff was light weight. Bumpers, dash boards filters ect. Some of the nicer stuff were turbo's and heads for 6.0l and 6.4l powerstrokes along with 2017 super duty DVD head rests(4 sets at $1200 each) and a bunch of aftermarket jeep stuff.

    I guess the group had 3 dealers and the location we bought had the biggest shop so they did a lot of the other dealers(mopar and nissan) stuff there along with the ford stuff.

    Had the U-haul loaded up in about 4 hours which wasn't too bad considering all the parts were loose.

    Oh and I have about 2 pallets worth of just cores. Any good core buyers I could trust to send everything to?

    Well this thread has kinda gone to **** because of photobucket holding my photos hostage lol.

    Anyway moving on to imgur which seems to be alright so far.


    So here it is. About a week ago I hauled my first load in the new truck. 3k lbs from a local scrap yard that has tower prices on the board.

    The ride is like I am on a cloud already with the Michelin tires I have on it but with 3k lbs the ride was even better!

    The bed is perfect don't get me wrong but I am on the hunt for a more typical flatbed I can use a gooseneck with and maybe make some stake sides for it.
