Registering a Jeep built from scratch
Okay so for the most part this is just a hypothetical question as I'm not likely to ever get to do this, but the question is still bugging me.
I've always dreamed of building up the ultimate CJ8, but given that they're getting harder to find and the ones out there are way expensive for what you get, I thought about building one basically from scratch. You know, a new aftermarket frame, stainless steel body, fuel injected crate motor, bulletproof drive train...etc. I know all the parts involved with building a Jeep from scratch would get expensive (which is why I may never get the chance to do it), but if I did what kind of a hassle would it be to get it registered and street legal? There would be no VIN, title or bill of sale to use unless I could find a rotted out junker cheap just for the VIN. Is there such a thing as a new title for a custom built rig? Anyone been through this already?
