If insurance is going to pay for it, pull the wheels and tires and stereo if you have one in. They won't give you a dime for them. Give them some stock bald rollers.

I'd consider buying it back from the insurance for basically scrap price.

I would def. turn that into a buggy... then you got a play toy... and can pick up another Jeep for a DD/occasional toy!!

4x4troy
11-25-2011, 10:40 PM
thats what i am going to try to do...buy it back and buggy it and buy a dd and maybe a zj for melissa

Figure by now it has all gone through the processes.. Was wondering what ever happened to the ZJ, as to whether you bought it back and continued on or not??

01-23-2012, 09:39 AM
