Just curious. What does everyone do with their stock parts? Obviously the go-to answer is to sell on craigslist or Facebook, but for most parts no one would want them. I have gas caps and stock wheels and suspension that it seems no one wants. Do you guys keep all your stuff in a box "just in case" or take it to the dumpster? I currently have everything piled in a box just waiting "just in case."

I’m selling my 18” wheels and OE plastic front bumper. They take up too much space to keep them around just in case.

I’ve been getting inquiries on the front bumper from JK owners with damaged front bumpers. The wheels will sell eventually; everyone and everything has a price.

I usually hold onto them to if they're not worth a ton and I'll donate them to someone if they have a damaged or worn out part. Worst case I've given parts to my local Jeep group or Jeep shop to help them fix people's Jeeps.

I tend to keep many stock parts up to a point. My plastic front bumper is in the attic. I'm a "mostly stock" kind of guy so I won't have a suspension set or anything to worry about. My JLR is a great vehicle, I won't be doing major surgery although the rear plastic bumper may get changed too some day. I'll keep it too.

Keep them, sell them, trash them - depending on it’s value and usefulness. Wheels and tires - sell because they have value and are big the keep around. Various fasteners and small parts - keep because they might be useful and don’t take much space. Big useless stuff - like OEM skid plates that are replaced by aftermarket ones - scrap it.

I like this idea. If I can help someone else that needs them I would. Do Jeep dealerships take used parts?

I just put all the stuff in storage.

I recently found a box of stock control arms and springs from my TJ in my garage, which I sold in 2014. I’m inclined to say toss or sell them....lol

depends on value... black plastic fenders and bumpers take so much space and really have no resell value.... take them to the local recycling facility..

Wheels.. tires, TPMS?.. I just sold all 5 for $150...

Suspension... again.. no resell value.. I just donated them to a guy building a TJ

Even my stock Dana 30/35 axles were hard to sell... I sold both for a mere $450

Unless you are a hoarder it makes no sense to keep any of that stock stuff.. if you upgraded anything.. are you really going to put stock parts back if the aftermarket part breaks? I doubt it..

Never sell - always give away for free.

If I can afford to buy a new JL and extra parts for it - I can afford to help someone else out.

Craigslist. Usually gone within an hour. Have met some interesting people working on interesting projects that could really use the parts.
