  • The police may confiscate the vehicle from you.
  • If you are involved in an accident that is not even your fault you will have to pay for it.
  • Insurance companies will sell you a policy but will not pay out, because your CJ plates are fake, and the documentation is not valid.

  • If you are in an accident, the seller of this vehicle is 100% responsible for your usage including any claims or liabilities that may arise.
  • If your CJ gets stolen (which happens frequently) you cannot even report it to the police.If you already have a CJ750 with fake plates, we recommend that you return it to the shop and get your money back or have them register it for you if they do not, call the police.
