AUCH, i think you guys was right
The insurance wrecker denied to pick up the wreck without wheels'N axles,
Then the tax/value guy i made the agreement with, "That i could disassembly all parts i wanted" (also have this on email), meant That i had misunderstood, or/and he didnt specify what part i could take off.
So he meantioned something about attempt on fraud, which i strongly denied, he really didnt specify anything other than "all parts i want" so back and forth all day, but he told me That only parts That they covered as upgrades which i had reciepts for and they already paid me back for, was for me to take off again, no engine, trans, drivetrain, axles, interior, bodyparts.

AUCH, BIG MISTAKE HAPPENED RIGHT NOW!!
WOW I AM SHOCKED, DID I REALLY DISASSEMLIED TO MUCH???

Ok. Back and forth all day, making me so nervous about how this turns out in the end,
But in the end of the day, he offered me, to draw off about 1600$ of the total agreement, 1600 was the value the wrecker put on the spares out of my Jeep, and again i am the lucky owner of ALL the parts
Will need to Get the wreck transported to the wrecker my self, but NO PROBLEM, my friend with a flatbed rescuetruck will haul it up laughing.

Shhhhh, what a Jeep day

Bummer, but I think you have more than $1600 in parts that you took off, so I think you are ahead. :-)

Another "got this in the mail, today." I got this. Now, I just need to figure out how much of my tail-pipe I need to cut off.
I am thinking just the crook at the end, then, it should slide on, with plenty of pipe to help support it. I don't want it sticking out too far.

Why would you think he meant "you can take the drivetrane" ????
(im not being a dick ) for 1600 I would have left it in..... You would have made more money when you factor labor, shipping, and waiting for the parts to sale.

I totaled a 97 Grand-Am GT back in 2003ish. I had done allot of work to the car RSM racing p&p head, RSM p&p TB, RSM cams, 9lb flywheel, high perf. axles, TCI "slick" clutch kit etc. etc etc. stock it was 190hp I was upto 240ish in a 2.4 twin cam. And even more $$ in the stereo system (I used to compete at IASCA sanctioned comps within my tri-state area). I had to make sure EVERYTHING was there..... I put stock tires and wheels back on it, factory stereo and pulled the motor apart at the body shop a day before the ****** bag Ins. adjuster came..... LOL I pulled the header, cams, head,TB and put just enough JY parts back heald by a few bolts to make it look stock ! They told me Insurance would not cover ANY aftermarket parts in the event of a "total loss".

I replaced the GLASS in my PS mirror last night $15 ebay

The damage was a result from a drunk on a Harley hitting me (than blaming me!). This was the 3rd accident the WJ has been in this summer.....
1. rear ended WITHOUT DEADLY EXPLOSION

2. it was parked and some junky backed into it, DS front fender.

3. Drunk on Harley tagged mirror coming down my street.


I've said this too many times on here, BUT it truly is the summer of the WJ's

Because there was written "That i could pull the parts i wanted" in the agreement.
Yeah, i will have to wait a bit before most parts sell, but hey, only Tailgate, transfer, exhaust, fenders, gauge cluster, PCM, rear Window, sold first week for 2500$!!!
I believe car and part prices Are Way off around here compered to US.
