May be something to consider.
Take the buy it back option after they total it. Then buy a 2.5 liter and swap parts

The local Advance Auto guy actually grabbed a tape measure and went to measure mine...Turns out this girl actually does know what she's talking about...Imagine that.

Very true, just don't rush anything, that was my mistake with my old YJ that got totaled. If it does get totaled you should definitely consider buying it back from the insurance, even if you chose not to keep it, you can most likely part out your jeep and junk the frame and stuff, you will probably end up with a profit. But ofcoarse do the math before hand. Goodluck, glade you're ok.

When you're driving home from work in the poring rain with no doors or windows, and you have the dumbest grin from ear to ear the whole way. People gave me the funniest looks Made my day

When you're driving in the rain and you don't have to use wipers because the rain doesn't stay on the severely sloped windshield.

When you drive in heavy rain and you have random leaks from somewhere...

When you take long road trips with a soft top and when you finally stop you have that ringing in your ears from loud noises

No body damage. But the axle is pushed forward on the drivers side.

Driving an infinity QX70 with heated and cooled leather seats and a full tinted glass roof (no more sunburns and skin cancer fears while driving). An added bonus is.. I don't have to wear earplugs when driving on the freeway and I can cruise at 80mph comfortably. Better gas mileage and wayyyy better towing a small trailer. Not to mention the Adaptive cruise control on the freeway and an AWD system that sh*ts on a stock jeep in sand and snow. Those are just a few things that pop mind.

Sorry. I just ordered one and I'm excited. Anyone wanna buy a ridiculously clean 2006 TJ with 35k miles. Garage queen with minor tasteful mods. Let me know! Looking for $15,500
