I have the opportunity to buy a recently burned out 93 yj wrangler. When I say burned out it's an understatement. The reason I was looking at it is because it has international scout axles. Has anyone ever delt with scout axles? I have a TJ so I have the coil springs and the other jeep has the leaf springs, so I know modifications would have to be made there. Has anyone ever rebuilt a jeep that had burned? I was just wondering if the motor n tranny are salvageable. Most importantly are the axles salvageable??? Don't know much about them. I'll post the pics I have of the jeep. If you know scout axles please fill me in. He wants $500.00 for the whole jeep. I was thinking $200.00 What do ya think?

Depends on how hot the fire was as to what is fixable. Most metal stuff drive train, motor, etc., should be but complete over haul is needed. For you Jeep I would say buy this for 5 or less if you can. Tear it apart and sell everything, should have enough to get a nice new axle for yours, at least. Then again maybe use the frame as a base for a really cool crawler.

Forgot to add the doors like they are will bring 200 easy if there is glass in them. Roll bar around 75 and say the t case is okay 100, frame around 200. Jeep is paid for rest is profit, these are fast top of the head guesses but will be close for fast movement.
