Driving Mom to her winter home in AZ and thinking I might find a deal on a Wrangler to drive home rather than fly.
Seems like every 3rd one on CL has a salvage/rebuilt title. What's up with that?

Several claim "just needed new bumper" or "no major damage or paint work". Yeah right, I've rebuilt plenty of insurance auction vehicles and a bumper R&R isn't going to total a 2012-2015 Wrangler.

Anybody have any insight into this? Should be too soon for the hurricane rigs to be hitting the market shouldn't it?

Not to early for them to be on the market.

Could be a commonly stolen vehicle.

Good point on the theft recovery. Hadn't thought of that.

in arizona the 4x4 utilities are often stolen and generally cross the border the same day---my brother worked pima co s/o for about 30 years----one day a deputy had 25 new samurais running south across the desert----he was calling for help----and the help was slow coming---as a last resort he put on his lights and siren to see what would happen----they all stopped believing they were arrested ------it was a sunday and the dealership didnt even know they were gone----brothers family locks down all of their vehicles with the club.....
