How do I dispose of a scrap Wagoneer??

I won a 1978 Wagoneer on eBay for a penny. The guy took out the 401 and the TH400. I want the D44 axles, Xfer case, and a few other parts. The rest needs to be scrapped.

I can flat tow it the 300 miles to my house and get my parts.

My question is how do I get rid of the rest of the beast? Oh, BTW, the title is missing.

Will the Scrappy's take it without a title? It'll have to be taken away on a flatbed since there will be no axles.

I can cut it up into 3' pieces and take it to work (steel mill), but that's a lot of work.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Sounds like you got an awesome deal. I don't know why the junkers wouldn't take it. They'll take just about anything. Around me there are places that'll even give you a whole $20 to take it away. It doesn't hurt to give the scrap yards a call.

I'd be tempted to scrap it in the local area... just haul back the parts you want.

Before you buy.... have the owner file for lost title or as a local scrap yard what they'ed do with a non-titled scrap vehice. You may not want to buy it if you can't dispose of it...

I just looked at the auction and if it has some parts in good shape, you might want to part it out on http://ifsja.org
I noticed it has a QT with low range and that can sometimes be sought after. Then depending on the interior you might have some more stuff to sell.
If not you can just junk it but if it has unique stuff there is a place to sell fsj stuff.

you might find out what's sought after, if anything, by Waggy owners and try to part it out on Ebay. You might make moey on installing waggy axles in your jeep [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: How do I dispose of a scrap Wagoneer??

Were trying to dispose of a couple vehicles from auto class and we have the titles but one doesn't have an engine or trans any more. Were trying to get a place to pick it up but non of the yards we called would come and get it, well one would but they wanted us to pay 100 for it. If i were you i'd see if you can find some where or some one to pick it up with out axles and a title. If not i'm not sure waht you could do, if you have a big property dump it some where on it or convince a buddy that dumping it on his land will add value.

hey jeeper99XJ,
Are/were you a student at Libertyville HS? I remeber the POS that used to be in the autoshop there. I heard that they were closing those classes.
