How much did you put in it and what all did you have to do?

I put in new floor pans, rhino lines the interior, completely re underbody it, new paint, bumpers and grill got re chromed, all new brakes, wheels, tires, sound system, carb rebuild, frame de rusted and powder coated, new fuel tank, fuel lines, new windshield, windows tinted black, new skid plates, and a tranny rebuild. All for about 6000$. If you don't mind telling, where do you live I can maybe give suggestions on places to do some of the work ( good quality and low prices)

In Oregon, the portland area, but a lot of it I can do myself such as new fenders, windshield frame, and pound out some of the larger dent and soft top frame. The rest like a repair for the top, mounting new wheels on my tires, a new windshield and maybe re-wiring some stuff I'll have to outsource to local companies for help

Your damage looks very minor I've seen the outcome of jeeps that have rolled 3-4 times where the windshield and roll bars are completely twisted and there usually isn't one strait body panel yours looks like it did 1 complete roll at a relatively low speed. I am having a hard time seeing you do 3-4 rolls especially on for 20 or so feet.

Glad your not seriously hurt. That looks very minor for a roll over like you described.

I have a full roll cage not just the stock family style one and I'm just going of of what my friends driving behind me saw, for all I know it could of been 2 or so, teenage guys exaggerate a bit, the body would've looked worse if I didn't land on the top first, plus I spent a bit of time bending a few things back before the pics. But all I know is I rolled quite a bit and the drop was 20 ft and it knocked me out for a bit so I didn't know all that happened my friends rolled it back onto its wheels and that's all I remember besides loosing control and it first landing on the top of the role cage

a single roll of a lifted jeep should cover a distance about equal to 2*height + 2x*width I'm just going to throw 6" wide and tall out as an example.
A single complete roll will take 24ft. Three rolls will take 72ft while 4 of course would take 96ft. of course not considering any sliding or air time. More often, 4 rolls would take much more distance than that.

I'm simply not seeing the damage of four rolls. Maybe it rolled on all four sides once? I'm just blown away at how minor the damage is. Worse happens in parking lots Did you land wheels down and drive away?

I missed your last post, yeah. I know what you mean. I've been in car accidents that did not even roll over and I SWEAR we were upside down!
I'm guessing 1.5 rolls now that I read your last post.

Looks to be in better shape than my Jeep after the last trip to Harlan.

To the OP, Your jeep is very, very fixable. From what I can see from the pictures your frame is just fine. I am at home right now but tomorrow I will post pictures of the jeep I bought and fixed for my wife and it is a 100 times worse than yours. Tub damage, replaced both fenders, windshield frame and glass and both half doors. Sitting on a 5.5 RE long arm kit with 33's. absolutely no frame damage or suspension damage at all. You will be just fine with what you have to work with

Yea I know I did a complete roll for sure cuz it landed on te top rolled and snapped the passenger mirror off rolled and landed on the drivers side I feel like a 1.5 roll is what happened. There wa about 70ft from the road where I ended up, but it bounced an rolled not just roll ech side touching the ground. But who cares? Minimal damage for a large accident investing about $1000 into repairs and she'll be good as new except for matching paint lol

Glad you are okay.

Looks to be fixable.
Put out some feelers for a windshield frame and hood.
When I rolled mine I was lucky. I was able to get a hood for $50 a frame for free and a used windsheild for $20.
And they were all red! No painting!
