They totaled the Jeep?

How much will it cost to keep it with salvage title?
How much would it cost for a new engine?
Any way to come out on top with some extra cash?

X2. I was wanting to go Hemi but now that 4bt is enticing me. Besides if you went deep enough to hydrolock then electronics are probably screwed too, right?

If you are set on an auto i'd take that 21k and put it towards a 2012 with the 5 speed auto.

Really?!? They decided to total for $21k vs putting in a new engine? No wonder our collective rates are so high...

Are you going to be able to pull off your new Toyos and anything else (swap with stock) before/if you turn in?

$5000 to $7000 for a tow slut, $1000 to $2000 for a trailer and $5000 to $10000 for a trail rig and you got a grand or more leftover. That's what I'd do
