parrot head Another thing that just occured to me. I bought the yj with the intention of never selling it, and just running it till it puked. So I didn't care about the title either. Trouble is that life is unpredictable; after owning it for 8 months and spending a lot of money upgrading it, I broke my back in a bad fall at work. Now I can't drive a stick anymore and had to sell the yj. I barely got my original purchase price for it and lost all the mone I spent on upgrades. I would have had a much better chance of recovering some of my investment if the title was clean. Just my own 2c

parrot head My last Jeep (89 yj) had a rebuilt title. As hard as I looked I could not see any evidence of damage from whatever accident it had. That is until I got it up to highway speeds. It was squirrely and hard to control at anything over 50-55mph. I bought it anyway (great price) and was able to fix the problems. My advice would be to do a very thorough test drive and maybe take it to a qualified mechanic for an un-biased assesment.

Peevee Thanks for the replies. Every jeep around here that is equipped like I want it. They are usually $7995 and up with 100,000 plus miles. This one is $3995 and it's a 1997 Sahara
edition with hard top and full doors plus a soft top. It has the 4.0 and 5 speed with air conditioning. So I would probably be keeping it for awhile. It also has 133,000 miles.

jherrin215 Yeah, you need to plan on having it for a while!! I have owned several rebuilt vehicles and don't have a problem with them, but you don't get much for them when it's time to sell.

Scout Your problems arise when you try to sell it. I'd stay away from anything with a marked title unless you plan on keeping it forever and never selling it. Also, it better be one hell of a deal over one without a rebuilt title.

jeeperx2 if it has a salvage title? you said rebuilt ? that means it has had more than 50% of its value damaged. not to big of a deal if like you said it was done right. yes you can insure it . if it has a current salvage title it has been inspected generally by local police dept or dot and demed safe. keep in mind it should be a few thousand cheaper than a reg title vehicle and a bank usually will only loan 80% of book lv

question about title

I looked at a Jeep today and was about to buy it. He then told me it had a rebuilt title. It's been in a front end collision but everything was repaired right.
It don't really bother me. Would I still be able to insure it? I always keep full coverage on my vehicles.
