Exclamation In serious need of some cheap or donated body parts

My wife and i don't have very much money. we've got a 2 yr old and a baby on the way and don't have much change to spare at all. My little ranger needs a front bumper, grille, driver's side fender, and back bumper. we live in alabama, and can meet within reasonable driving distance. as in the title the parts would have to be cheap if not donated. if you can help out somehow, i would owe you big time. i am a body man and a mechanic and if there is ANYthing you need just holler at me.

If you were closer, I'd donate some parts to you. I've got a couple spare BroncoII's laying around..

Is this basic transportation or a toy? if toy, maybe you should look at rearranging your priorities for now, In My Not-so Humble Opinion. If basic trans and you can travel to Clinton, SC I have access to a scrap metal yard you can pull from but I don't have the time to pull stuff, I just manage the internet sales side for vehicles and commerical (hi- volume) core supplies.

actually, its our basic transportation, if you need be so smart about it. i wouldn't be concerned if it were a toy. i'm not asking for a handout. i offered work in exchange for parts or parts at a deal. my family is my number 1 priority, sir, and you have offended me pretty harshly. next time you feel the need to start making assumptions, please, do so on the er of caution considering you have no idea who i am or what our situation is. its people like you, that point fingers without seeing the situation that make it so hard on young struggling families. I work full time, go to college full time, and do my very best what I have.

on another note, thanks guys for at least offering some help even though we live too far away.

I asked, did not assume.
I have kids of my own and they sometime loose sight of the big picture.
As you see I did offer parts.
Have a nice day.

i'm not sure how much shipping would be but i'll definately check on it because i could really use the parts. I wouldn't be pressed so much for cash but my wife's work isn't giving anyone any hours and i'm also trying to make repairs to our cavalier to make it safe enough for her to drive so the help is well appreciated. i'll check on prices and get back to you guys. thanks so much for the help, we really need it. the favor will be returned-may be later rather than sooner lol, but i will make things right.
