Kinda Southeast of Tacoma. I can't guarantee it will be worth your drive, but there will be a bunch of stuff for sale. Guess it all depends on how much you have to spend, and how good of a haggler you are. :D

I'll probably be there with friends and a Jeep-crazy 2 1/2 year old girl.


In relation:
If anyone knows someone looking for an 88 YJ (258, auto, 231) for a project, we have one here. $1000, no less, as is (not running, but ran well when it did, lol). $500 extra if you want the full doors and hardtop (already installed). Comes with an unistalled, still in the box bikini top. We think it needs a new carb but we didn't want to waste our time anymore. Has new exhaust from front of cat back (less than 200 miles). Oh, and you gotta pick it up. :D I've just got no place to work on a swap, otherwise I would. :(

Hey,
If I'm not able to make it up, if I gave you guys a list of something I'm interested in would anyone be willing to keep a look out for me? :)

I can keep a lookout if you like.

PM me a list and a phone # I might be able to get a hold of you during the meet.

I don't know what to expect, this will be my first trip there.

The Moonshiners 4x4 Swap Meet is one of the largest events of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. It uses most of the available interior exhibition space at the Puyallup Fairgrounds along with vendors selling outside.

Plan on spending the better part of the day looking through new and used parts, accessories and complete vehicles. I'm guessing there are several hundred vendors total. Regardless, it's the place to find what you're looking for.

$5 gets you in, parking is free. The link above has a map to the site.

Lots of crap there.

Got a 4.2 crank (for a 4.0 stroker) with rods for $40.

And a nice used pipe wrench for $10.

Didn't make it. Kid was in a bad mood, I had no money, and I was spent from a class I took yesterday.

Didn't really need anything anyway. ;)

did'nt see you there Steve, we had about 5(?) booths, sold a bunch of doughnuts, got some WJ brake stuff and a winch for the wife on top of that Timmy and I got a co2 tank full for -$3.50 !!

and I got a ride from some 16 year old girl for $5 (the next one she only charged me $1 and she really put some effort into that one!!)

good times!

Pics?


DOB :nono:

I was hoping someone took a pic so I could put it up on the site, but no one was quick enough on the draw!!

She did say that I could "rent" her services next year, $100 for the day. It would almost be worth it, bring some pillows, box of cookies and just kick back and relax!
