Long story short, I thought I was getting RCV's from my brother as a gift for the past few weeks, very nice brother I know! He recently had some unexpected bills arise and informed me that he doenst have the funds right now but he will get them for me in the near future. In the meantime, I'm down a front D30 passenger sice (long side) axle shaft and I just need a temporary stock shaft until the RCV's arrive.

Also I have been looking for a passenger side front door, but I dont want to spend the dime on a new one. It is dented pretty good from a tight squeeze up at walker valley. The dent or the door handle not working doesnt bother me at all, but me having to open the door from the inside is starting to bother the girlfriend, haha.

Anyone ever seen one or know of one that may have some JK parts? If not, is there anyone local who perhaps upgraded their shafts from a D30 and has a passenger side shaft I can purchase? I have alot of factory take off parts if you need anything or if interested in trading. Feel free to reply or PM me.

Thanks and I hope to see you all on the trails, or the streets. But hopefully the trails! :beer:

IMO, they are way too new to find in a pick-n-pull lot. Most will go to scrap yards that will part them out and sell the parts themselves.

Thanks for the help guys. I really appreciate it. I havent checked anywhere yet still as I just returned from the sand dunes in Moses Lake for Memorial Weekend. I'll check around and let everyone know what I find just in case someone else is wondering for the future.

Fnord5 - If or when I replace my door, I will be sure to let you know!

Good luck with your search... there are the national used parts locators I've heard mentioned before. Never used them but the one that comes to mind is carpart.com or something like.

The JK has been out for over five years, now, and I have yet to find one in a junkyard anywhere in Maine.
Yeah the Wrangler has always been unique in that manner. I have never seen one in a junkyard... other than once there were five decommissioned mail Jeeps in a row at the Norcross pull-a-part, in-tact and untouched. That was kind of sad to see.

I got a quote from one for a door. 1200 shipped. Told him to fuck off and that I would rather buy new.

Wow, word for word, exact same situation for me.
Hit a tree while the Jeep side-slided down a rock and the front passenger door hit a tree.
The top part is dented and the handle does not work from outside but from inside it's ok...

I am in need of a front passenger door as well.if you find one, can I get your old dented one?
Everybody hits the same spot!!! ;)

copart.com for wrecked vehicles at auction - you could possibly get an entire front end write off for 10K and have a rubi transfer case if you don't already have one and there is the odd built jeep on here. My friend/neighbor has bought about 15 cars off here and rebuilt them for profit. It's the real deal.
Doesn't help you with your door, but might help others.

carpart.com for parts.
I'm not having any luck finding parts off of carpart right now for JK's.
Hood, door, fender, grille, transmission, nothing came up.
I might call them and see if someone live can offer some help in my search parameters for JK parts.

I'll take you up on your offer! I'm out of town right now and returning on Monday. I'll send you a pm so we can get in touch this week if that works for you.
