Default Auto wreckers.

I'm looking for information on any yard (U-Pull types preferred) with late model GM vehicles. Ideally, these will be located somewhere in northern Idaho, Montana, North or South Dakota, Minnesota or Pennsylvania (Pittsburgh area).

I'd appreciate anyone posting details.

Thanks.

Plug in any part you like, and pick your zip code. Tell it what mile radius to search. The results will show dozens of yards in your range.

Yeah, that works Will, but what he'* looking for a is a U-pull-It with set flat rates for parts, I believe. If that'* what he'* looking for he can forget about Minnesota, North/South Dakota, and possibly Wyoming.
There are only 3-4 U-Pull-It yards in MN that have set prices, but the cars they get in..... are eitherover 8-10 years old or picked over the minute they the yard.
There was a decent one, but they were having way too much trouble with people causing troubles there for other people (person A is disassembling a part, steps 3 feet away to switch tools and then person(*) B and C would step in and claim the 90% removed parts). I never made it there, but wish I had.
I do know on the East side of Des Moines, IA there is a U-pull-it yard with dirt cheap prices and they have a fair amount of 4-8 year old cars.

Just let Haro go pick out what you need, they practically give the stuff to him!

That thought had crossed my mind!

Right now I'm not really looking for anything specific but I figure if there are some places I can wander through, I might get some ideas for mods or upgrades. I might also spot the odd item that would be nice as a spare if it'* the right price.

They don't let you free roam at any of the yards I have been at.
