    Not sure if this is a suitable, or allowable, place to ask - but I'm looking for help on leftover inventory from a 4x4 accessory shop. There are random parts like Rancho shocks, leaf springs and blocks, and shiny accessories like rocker panels. Local shops aren't interested. Any help is appreciated. Maybe other areas have older model trucks that could use these?

    I’d take pictures of what you have and post it in our classified section with a short description.

    Do what mikeG suggested, or even facebook groups in your area, or look up 4x4 forums that are tailored to 4x4 trucks and parts bet they would go quick. Just becareful of spammers. Or even ebay use a buy it now option so you get what your asking for it.

    Thank you! Unfortunately, I don't have a Facebook account, but it seems I need to set one up. I'm guessing that the interest in older model 4x4 trucks is not as high in my area as it used to be. Although delivery drivers and construction workers do still ask about the 81 Toyota. And of course, I am ignorant of values or what to price an item. I was thinking I'd list them with "make an offer". Not a good idea?

    I’d do a little research online and see what things are selling for from other retailers, then name the price. It will probably be a lengthy process but people are always looking for a good deal.

    Alot use the facebook market place now over sites like craigslist anymore. Far as pricing if its new in package see if can find what the retail is and start at like 10% off retail and go from there. May alo check ebay see what that part is going for used or new and price it according to that.
