don't know there hours; but I would play it safe and be there between 9am & 4pm M-F for sure. It cost 2 bucks to get in; they provide a cart type wagon to toke your tool box and parts. They accept cash or credit cards but not a discovery card so I been told.
Their prices seem alittle higher than pull-a-part, but like I said 80's thru 90's ford heaven to include alot of jeep cherokee's , durango's; and chevy & dodge trucks as well.

There's no difference in type for price; but they also don't have a print out of prices either & have core charge on some things (like doors $4 core) put as I mention prices seem alittle higher than pull-a-part. But if your into 80'& 90's fords its there.....

Maybe you & Tim can come up & I met ya if I'm off; haven't seen Tim in over a year!!!! That's prolly a good thing for him.
