A douchebag kid from miami ran a stop sign yesterday and I teeboned him... I talked to the insurance company today and they said it was prolly going to be totaled out.. I might see how much it'll cost to buy it from the insurance company, the tansmission and transfer case have less than 2k on them, I'll part it out.. I only managed to break 3 fingers, fucked up my right knee and have a concussion.. She will be missed..









The douche that I hit..

Rebuildable if you wanted to....Might be worth buying back from the insurance co...

Ouch. Glad you're not banged up too bad.

Yeah, I'd buy it back if I were you. Lots of upgrades on that jeep that insurance isn't going to pay for, and you can add those parts to your new/next jeep.

I didn't get a picture of it but the frame took a pretty good bend towards the middle of the jeep.. I'll just part it out and move on to another jeep project.. It's sad, I rebuilt this jeep completely myself, my first such under taking..

I'd definitely try to buy it back from the insurance company - those tires, winch, etc are worth more than they'll give you for them.

Straighten that frame replace all the fenders and other shit with tube. You will worry less about destroying it off road too.

The great thing about the Wrangler is you can replace every last piece with an aftermarket part. I don't see any reason not to keep it and rebuild.
Link Posted: 9/14/2009 12:54:39 PM EST
sorry to hear this man

not totaled in my book, that can be repaired pretty quick and easy

Looks like it is a total loss. They may let you keep it for a price but I bet it would have
to be a Non-Rebuildable title though.

There are sure a lot of Idiots running stop signs down there. I have never understood why
that happens so often down there.
Link Posted: 9/14/2009 12:59:13 PM EST
don't settle too low or take the first offer. they owe you for the winch, tires, wheels, air compressor all the upgrades. I have been there and done times (I have a samll company with 5 trucks on the road in Florida) list out full retail for all your goodies and upgrades
Link Posted: 9/14/2009 1:03:23 PM EST
Well I'm glad that you're okay for the most part. Good luck with all the insurance paperwork and stuff. Your jeep looks like it was real nice, I'm sorry to see it go...

Thornturds.

You may have killed the T-case. Impacts like that shove the yoke into the casing and can split the housing.

Glad to hear you're not too banged up.

Damn, I need to wear my seatbelt. That windshield had to hurt.

Sorry about the Jeep. Its always when the are paid for. I like the tires. Always wanted a set.

Hate to see a good Jeep die. I'm currently repairing a recent deer hit, but nowhere near that amount of damage.

I assume you're working with douchebag's insurance company? Any chance you have all the receipts for that aftermarket stuff? They should owe –– replacement cost –– you for everything that's broken. I know it doesn't always work out that way but still.

I turned the AC compressure to an onboard air pump.. to fill tires and run air tools..

On-board compressed air?

Other than you got banged up I fail to see what the problem is.

I thought NOT having a Jeep was a good thing.

Now go get the 70's era Land Cruiser you always wanted.

Actually, they probably don't owe him for the upgrades. Unless he had a rider specifically for them, most policies will only pay a certain amount for accessories / aftermarket parts or upgrades. That being said, if you are not going to buy it back, talk to the adjuster and convince him to let you remove all aftermarket parts. They may require you to replace them with stock parts if the Jeep originally had them. Say, if you remove the wheels, they are most likely going to want some thing put back on them. The winch, they shouldn't have a problem with.
Link Posted: 9/14/2009 2:30:58 PM EST
There is a scub YJ on the local craigs list with no motor or interior. The guy wanted 1500 for it but I bet 700 cash would take it home.
If it was mine I would buy it back, buy a scrub YJ for a clean title and swap the drivetrain and everything from the tub back. You jeep really isn't that bad. Sell all extra parts from the two, scrap out the junk and get to wheeling!

Check the local yards, a metric shit ton of jeeps went to Jeep heaven in cash for clunkers. Your driveline and goodies in a cheap package.

We do not have that stupid no fault PD law that you guys have up there. Per the OP the other party was at fault
and owes for his damages. If the tortfeasor (dumb kid) has insurance they owe the Actual Cash value of the jeep
and accessories.

No the OP's PIP coverage will pay the med bills until he hits the policy limit.

The seatbelt lock didn't engage, I just went foward.. I was going about 45 when I hit him, he turned out only a few yards in front of me... I don't even think I had a chance to hit the brakes, it really could have been alot worse..

My CJ7 was F'd up more than that. It's rebuildable with the proper application of a frame straightener and a 4wd catalog.


EDIT: Just saw the post about how bad the frame bend was. That sucks, mine wasn't bent up that bad. I only had lap belts. My passenger broke the windshield, just like you did. I bent the steering wheel and seperated my lip from my gums and needed 10 stitches under my lip to reattach it.
