    Also keep in mind you'll need to get it to pass whatever inspection requirements your state has for salvage-title vehicles before you are able to register/drive it.

    This is a good point. I know it varied from state to state as to when the title goes from clean to salvage, so definitely do that research.

    For $2500 depending on mileage you could part it out and get a great deal on a 3.4 swap for a 3rd gen Pickup

    I bought a 10 year old taco with 130k and minor front end damage from insurance auction for 3200. It needed a grill hood and fender. I cut all the suspension off and SAS it so I didn't want to start with a perfect one anyway. If it's gonna be a wheeler I think you can save money by going with a wrecked one, your gonna beat it up anyways.
