      bumpers, headlight trims, foglights, and anything that i can swap out with mine that might be in better shape, pretty much just like looking through parts and cars to see what i can add to mine

      You won't find any jump yards with things in em..maybe a super here and there but a thing..no way.

      Thing parts are hard to find...and they are hard to find for a reason...there int many left and not many were sold out here
