    It seems you really don't know where to begin....

    First things first! Increase your budget by 250 thousand.

    this is the original topic creation post "hey guys, after pondering upon this matter a lot i have decided that i will build my own suv from scratch. i tried finding an already restored jeep but couldnt find anything of my taste.. im a doctor by profession as some of you might know, but i know nothing about jeeps or mechanical work. This has been my childhood dream to own dont get much free time but im taking help of a friend. he will be doing most of the pity work.. Money is not an issue.. budget can extend upto 6 lacs..
    jeeps that i have in mind
    Wrangler
    Willy 42
    willy 52
    cj 5 modified to wrangler
    cj 7
    toyota fj 40
    i have literally no idea where to begin. but i think the first step would be to buy a frame from auction.
    so my first question is
    where are these auctions held ? what is the procedure and everything related to it..
    what to look in a jeep before bidding.."

    Brother what i would suggest you is that go for mutt m151 if you just want fun little bit offroading because in case of heavy machine you have to spend more time with mechanic then at home
    but if u insist that you want some beast i would suggest fj40.dont go for cj7 cj5 or converted to wrangler.
    Thats a suggestion rest you have to decide yourself.

    my father doesnt like m151.. he says it has technical faults in it.. that is why its obsolete even in army.. he was in supply and transport core..
    but he can also be wrong.. although i like the shape of mutt

    To some extent I agree with what Vicious77 said above. Since you dont have any technical knowledge and past experience of this field, I would suggest you to go for CJ7 etc. Make its bone stock standard and learn how engines, gears, differentials, brakes, tyres, suspension and electrical systems work in a 4x4. Don't make it complicated. Do it yourself. Then see how your interest develops in this field and whats your learning curve. Based on your interest and knowledge, go for a real mean machine i.e. A Land Cruiser

    for a starter i would recommend 1.3 suzuki jimny or suzuki SJ , they are quite capable , easy to maintain , and good on fuel . do check their reviews and videos u will get an idea about their fair capability .
    Stock vehicle is going to be trouble free , kissi kee dum n kissi ka sur .e.g. toyata engine on a abc frame is not recomended for a newbie , others may not agree with me but thats the best advice i can give

    Pictures would be very helpful in better assessment of value otherwise it will be guesstimation, plus if its registered or not.

    Direct auction: under 200k
    1st contractor: 200 - 250k
    2nd contractor/seller: 225 - 275k

    Pls remember, older auctioned vehicles are cheaper for two reasons mainly...one is - earlier lots were truly scraped out vehicles & second - Registration cost (Token tax, this tax that tax, penalty starts from the date of auction & not the date of registration submission. For a vehicle auctioned two years back will cost all payments of taxes & penalties for the last two years as well to get it registered.
