Hello. Forum newbie here. Good place to find parts?

I have a 93 Ford Ranger, 2.3 I4 5sp manual with a factory cassette mod (adds at least 20 HP!)

It has a broken tail lens right now. I find it as cheap as $20.27 (which gets bumped up to $37.84 after S&H!), but want cheaper, or at least cheap S&H. Any highly recommended places to go shopping for parts, big or small?

Also, what's a good DIY'er book to have. I have a Bentley for my BMW, presume they might be the preffered publisher here too. There's currently a Chiltons in the cab.

Thanks in advance all!

Oh, it's also missing the jack it came with; missing the spare, for that matter. Can't seem to find a replacement that fits in the cab anywhere, let alone at a fair price.

I'd ideally like to replace the jack with one that can mount inside the spare, under the bed in some way, etc.

A salvage or junk yard would be your best bet in finding used parts. However, $20 is about what your gonna pay there for a tail lens assembly.

I was fine with paying the $20.00, but the extra $20 for shipping & handling was what was annoying. Those that offer free S&H charged $40, so there wasn't any particularly inexpensive place for these, at least not online.

Will go the junkyard route though, thanks for the reply.

Re: Hello. Forum newbie here. Good place to find parts?

Thanks for all the tips. Best place I ended up finding was on eBay; $25 incl. shipping. For this sort of item (a lens) I'm not too worried, especially from a seller with great feedback and over 10k+ items sold.

If I ever need more mechancial type items, I'll check these others listed. Thanks again.
