I hit a deer on the left front of my '95 cherokee and need to replace my whole grille assembly and a headlight/signals, but the thing I'm stuck on is the air filter box. The impact pushed the radiator into the existing box and busted it up a little, I'm wondering if there's a way I can fix this thing (duct tape?). I can't find much in terms of a replacement on the web, and I'd much rather do this thing cheap anyway.
Sorry to hear about your father.
Keep on learning man.
You can learn anything on these forum(s). In fact, i trust these guys more than i'd trust my local mechanic.
If i were you i'd go to a junkyard and pull one of them out of a jeep. Would be much cheaper than buying a new one. If you don't want to do that, you can opt for a K&N air intake instead. (Which are often considered overpriced and over-rated.)
If yours isn't too bad, i'd just try to glue it back together.
Have any pictures of the damage?
