1996 V8 Explorer

I've got a 1996 V8 Explorer minus the motor and transmition that is looking for a good home. Should I scrap it or part it out? I bought it for the motor and transmition. I needed them for another project.

scrap is by weight, so w/out the engine and trans it wont be worth much. if you part it out it's going take a long time to make money off it and as it's a '96 i'm assuming the parts are in less than pristine condition. if you're prepared to have it around for quite a while, i supose you stand to make more money off of it in parts.

What gears in the rear. ? if it is a 3:73 w/ limited slip you should get 300 or better for that. You might as well finnish parting it out without an engine thats about all you can do .

I think parting it out is the best way to go unless some one wants the title.

assuming you have the title, sign it over to them. did you get a title when you bought it?
