Yeah have to agree, buying a totaled Jeep can be an experience, and you really need to know what it's going to take to fix it, before you buy it.
My CJ5 looked like it needed a front bumper and the frame horns tweaked at the bumper, when the insurance company totaled it. Unless you looked close you could have easily missed the cracked trans case and transfer case.

God I miss that Jeep. Forgot the kinda Jeep, 80 SX4.
