    Default so i got another jeep today.... but..........

    friend of mine who owns a shop is closing up and selling it. i went by to take a look around and maybe buy some things. well.... sitting in one of the bays was a 02 wrangler tj. 4 inch lift 33 inch tires 4.0 5 speed... guy put it in the shop and never came back for it... 6 years ago....

    so i purchased this jeep "for parts only".. ran the title and its currently owned by a bank.

    now what?

    leave the jeep in mexico where its parked or?

    you dont have much if any options if you already got it.. might have to just do some pushups and take the loss.

    break out the toolbox and get them craigslist taichi up to speed.. let the bank figure out what to do with a bucket seat, floor mat, and a Vin.

    good luck man..

    Yup, guy probably left it there because the repo man was getting it anyway if he took it out. The bank will want to auction it off to recoup some of their losses.


    Part it.
