x2. No one will want to buy it for the price you want to sell it at.

They have no way of knowing what exactly happened to the vehicle, bent frame, fire, flood, etc...

Re: What parts do i need !?!?

It's going to be hard to resell if you ever sell it. JMO. But you can make it what you want! You should atleast go with a 08+ SRT Front End.

Re: What parts do i need !?!?

i don't really care about it in the future of selling...and my car wasn't declared a salvaged totaled loss yet because it wasn't covered on my insurance..i never had to buy my car back..i got to keep it because it was a third party accident meaning i didn't try and cover it on my own insurance..i covered it on the hitters. Also, i can absolutely re register my car and clear the title in ny..its called a salvage rebuilt title..and once the car passes inspection i can register and receive a clean title. i mean honestly im 19 years old..i really don't wanna go through all the bullshit of buying a new car..i love my jeep you know. i plan on keeping it for a few more yrs until i can actually afford something like the new srt8. what makes it so ideal for me is i can get really great prices on getting all this stuff painted and everything...car is worth 15 grand easy or well use to be but neither more or less, the car will be able to receive a clean title after inspection only difference is.. when someone looks up the vin it will say its a salvage rebuilt. but its whatever...my car will be done before the end of august i hope everybody stays tuned to this post because its going to be a sick srt8 clone haha..also im not going with the 08 up look..i don't like the front lights and how there not flat on the bottom. looks kinda bug eyed and not as sleek in my opinion. plus i got so lucky because i got a sick price on the mopar side skirts and bumper already painted with brackets..i mean cmon 700 cash mint condition..has the oem grill, chrome strip, brackets, and srt side skirts!!! but yeah i feel like i just wrote an essay so ill leave it at that lol!

Re: What parts do i need !?!?

Ya man do what you want and enjoy it. Just make sure you know all your rights with that vehicle and the processes it will take to keep the title clear and have at it!

P.S. Guys are just trying to look out for you and offer their opinion so don't take their criticism the wrong way.

Re: What parts do i need !?!?

As long as you did your research bro... sounds easier in NY than in my area. Probably because of my close vicinity to Mexico. Best of luck with your SRT8 clone, can't wait to see pics!

Re: What parts do i need !?!?

just remember to keep the reciepts for all of your parts, they inspect all of the new parts to make sure they are not stolen

Re: What parts do i need !?!?

Yeah bro, id just do what makes ya happy! More power to ya for keeping it and stciking it out. Sure this isn't the smartest move financially as the value has dropped to poo poo. BUT thats not why we buy/drive our cars right??? We drive what we love or at least I know I do! Id never sell my Jeep, Im gonna die with this thing in my garage . . . hopefully haha.

I think even if I totaled it i'd fix it no matter that cost, honest to god. Maybe not right away but you can bet id sit in a pile until I could. Thats true love, and I know plenty of guys who'd do the same. Rare or unique or not, sometimes its more than that. As they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder haha

Anyway keep us posted. All stuff you need could be had for relatively cheap if your good at searching the net etc. Napa has all the suspension/d-train stuff for cheap. So as long as the frame WAS NOT bent at all, your ok. If so then its a whole new ballgame and itll get way pricey but you CAN find new crossmembers online if needed but again $$$ and labor. If a frame rail was bent then its tough. Would take some pro metal working to get back to OEM even then the rigidity may not be the same as originally. List of stuff I looked up after an accident I had where i did all work recently. All from local Napa. Have business account so pricing may vary

inner/outer tie-rods - $20-$30
Half-Shafts - $60+
LCA - $150+ if you need BJ which you would haha
UCA- $50 or so
Knuckle Assembly - $300+ i think it was
Wheel Bearing/Hub Assy - $75 or so
New Wheels/Tires - lot of options there, thats the big $ if you need to do it

You'd be real surprised at how much of this thing you can rebuild for cheap if you do the work yourself. Labor is another story Don't forget an alignment too

Re: What parts do i need !?!?

thanks man...and also the good news is the truck doesnt have a salvage title! i really love my jeep and the total of fixing it is costing me 5000..but thats including a total srt8 body upgrade so i mean its so worth it. frame wasnt bent at all and she'll be up and running again before summer ends hopefully. i really appreciate your help!
