Default Do you need H3 parts?

I have a 2006 H3 and after the engine started knocking I got an estimate to replace it and have decided it doesnít financial sense to do such. With that said, and after I checked into what auto salvage yards would give me (ridiculously low) Iím wondering if ďparting outĒ the vehicle makes sense? Iíve got land to store the vehicle and everything on the vehicle (other than the engine which I believe still has usuable parts) works. Given the low availabllity of parts for Hummers, and after looking online at the price of used parts like Transmission, rear end, power heated seats, etc, Iím wanting thoughts on the approach of parting it out? Thanks!

Mkarns - the interior is black and 2 of the climate controls **** bulbs are indeed out. And the body is red.

Happythree - thanks for thought, but we have another H3 that weíve already take the sport grill off of and moved to our newer H3 and the thought is, after realizing cost of long ago easily available parts is skyrocking, weíll use the red hummer as a salvage for our black one. Also, I know I can make much more than the $1,000 weve been offered, off just the major components (tranny, rear end, seats, dash body parts etc.). With that said, Iíd be willing to listen from offers from anyone who wants to buy it all in one!! 😄 Iím in the Dallas, Texas area

OP, I've done the same with a Ford Explorer about 8 years back. Car was 14 years old in reasonably good shape, everything worked, had 181,000 miles on it. I had the room and the time to do it and learned quite a bit in the process. I suspect you know you'll have a mountain of parts, need plenty of time, a shipping account (I used USPS priority flat-rate boxes for the smaller stuff and Fedex, if you sign up for a free Fedex account you'll get a discount on your shipments). Also a FSM helps when it comes time to disassemble some items. Purely an economic decision on my part as the car was worth about $375 in trade. I netted $2,200 when I finally took the carcass (basically the bare frame and the separated body shell minus the bolt-on fenders doors etc) to the metal recycler and got another $170 for it as scrap metal. I was retired, did it mostly for fun so I didn't consider my time was worth anything. I'd do it again. I look back on that and am amazed that parts off that vehicle went all over the country. I recall the thing that perhaps impressed me the most was the extent of the electrical system and everything connected to it was astonishing.
