- Liftgate has broken window and large dent ( from vandalism )
- Windshield has many cracks
- Entire right side of body has dents, I'd like to repair the biggest ones, I'd need a new fender, a new body piece that surrounds the grill, and a new bumper.
I'm most concerned with not having a back window, I've visited a few junkyards unsuccessfully and have searched online for a cheap new ( or used ) lift gate. I'm not so inclined to spend a G on a new one. Its proven difficult for me to find a liftgate that fits the Freedom Edition. The shape of the Freedom looks to be less boxy than the regular Cherokee's so I'm not sure about putting a liftgate on from a regular Cherokee. If anyone has suggestions to where I could locate a new rear hatch as well as the damaged body parts I'd appreciate it.
I bought a working hatch with good lift shocks from a local U-pull it. Cost me $200 if I remember correctly
Edit: my jeep is the old body style. Your results may differ, sorry
