I have been to the one in Aurora years ago (but I don't remember where and/or how to get there)...

...remember driving past on I believe on North Avenue in Chicago too last year....

AND Recently only to the one on 41 up in Wadsworth (almost in Wisconsin). I can get the address and phone number and post back.

But where are all the pick n pulls in the area? I need to start visiting them!

That is one of them. You come down to a T in the road and if you go one way you go to that one, if you go the other it takes you to another yard. I always like going to those places just to see what there is to see even if you don't find any gems.

Summit is cool, you're right about the one in Chicago, it's on North Ave, between Cicero and Grand.
Victory used to be awesome albeit a stinky mudhole, but U-Pull-It changed the game with crazy cheap fixed pricing, half priced Wednesdays, and other special half price weekends....they even had half prices on Father's Day those bastards.

geez.. lets not get into semantics here..

I said chicagoland (which means within the chicago area and not necessarily within city limits of chicago)

The bottom line is there are junkyards where you pay for parts they take off the cars or junkyards where you bring your tools, remove parts yourself and pay less.

I'm interested in the full list of where you take it off the car yourself and NOT where they just sell you the parts.

Is that clear enough for everyone?

since when did victory let you pull your own parts?:dunno:
I havent been there for probably two years, but i used to go a lot and you could always pull your own parts. They would pull parts for you too. but maybe its changed

True. It's like the Chicago Garage actually having a single member that is a resident of Chicago.

okay, thanks..

I think it's a case of them taking one look at me (a girl) laughing and saying no you can't pull your own parts is all...

All you do there is sign in and walk back to the yard. But they would of denied you if you had sandal/open toed shoes.
