You would think but all the salvage yards around here are getting rid of their older inventory so nobody seems to have anything.


I'm hoping a member here can hook me up.

Need drivers vent window

The latch on my drives side vent (wing) window broke today so I need a window with a functioning latch to replace it with. My truck is a '72 J4000, I don't know if that matters or not.


Thanks

I remember a while back someone was looking to rent an old Gladiator for a photo shoot or commercial. I guess that's what it was for.
