accident...

okay here goes nothing... about an hour ago i was out having some fun in the snow and was on my way home. Unluckily enough the road i was on had a few patches of ice and slush. I lost control of my jeep and slid into a bridge, hit both passenger and drivers side of front bumper. The Passenger side took the first hit, then spun around hitting the drivers side ripping the bumper off.


Passenger side


Drivers side

Little bit of close up on ds.

Sorry for the bad quality pics, cell phone.

Question is; does it look fixable? do u think ins would total it, but i am not trying to go through it. Its a 98 zj so the overall value isnt to high ha

Philly seems like an area that would have quite a bit of u-pull-its so that might be the way to go and have the parts painted to match.

Or, if you can find them, buy parts from a jeep already your color, that would help too.

ha it's fine. No where NEAR totalled. I cut off all that scrap metal under the headlights that you just dented. Fix the fender and the hood and its good to go. New primed hoods are like under 200 on Ebay, same with fenders. Then just pay to have them painted. Or leave it how it is?

I say just fix the headlights and then mount a hi lift where your front bumper used to be. Then it'll just look awesome.
