It's been a few years since we have had a Jeep, and we are getting the itch again. Going to unload a Tacoma Pre-Runner and get into an Unlimited. Daughter, plus dog, plus all the doodads that family life entails requires a bit more room. Such is life. In our quest to find a suitable unit, we have decided that newer is better, but it doesn't have to be pristine. And, an idea was born. Salvage jeep. Perfect!
So, I bid on a jeep at auction with a totally wrecked windshield, roof, fenders, windows... etc. You know, you average rollover.
If I win the auction, which I expect to, I will be looking for a new windshield frame, and glass, among other things, but this is a good start. It's a 2010 JK, but they are all the same, as far as I can tell, other than color in the windshield department. Hoping to get a colormatched unit, but I can't complain much if the price is right.
I have been looking online, and I am having trouble locating one. Anyone have any ideas where to find another?
I tried to upload the pictures, but my FTP site is down. Bugger. Trust me when I say that rain has been getting in. I am hoping that the dash isn't screwed up.
My heart won't be broken if I don't win this auction. There are plenty of salvage jeeps out there.
