I need a estimate on some body dammage!

My jeep was in a crash before I bought it, the guy side swiped a tree so the back quarter panel has a huge dent in it. And the window was busted out and the window frame is crooked. I know you can't just pull the side panel off and replace it any ideas? I can post pics if needed!

That kind of repair could approach the value of the vehicle. Sounds like you have yourself a trail rig. Now go wheel it!!!

Sounds like your jeep took a pretty good hit if it damaged the window opening. Since you've asked on an internet forum for a body repair estimate I'm going to guess that you have little/no body repair experiance, nor the specialized tools to do the work with.

Try a local body shop for an estimate. By the time you buy the parts and tools you need to repair it, usually having a professional do the repairs is cheaper.

I had some drunk ****er back up into my 5.9 dented the two passenger doors, broke the clips on my side panels and pushed the rocker panel in some.. I got quoted $1500-2k in dmg. I never found the guy who did it sadly.. but with my $500 copay insurance thankfully I don't have to pay full price to fix it.. I just don't have $500 atm

Your Jeep looks totaled by the picture. I hope you didn't pay very much for it, because it looks like it has some extensive damage. With that said, that doesn't mean that you can't find find a body guy to restore the vehicle -- but why shoot yourself in the foot twice?

So, you are suggesting insurance fraud?

How am I suggesting fraud... he side swiped a ****ing tree.. his insurance should cover that. I have full coverage collision and comprehensive for me and another driver and health through my car insurance on my 5.9... If I smash into a tree and I pay the deductible they will pay for the rest.. I suggest you learn how car insurance works...

Thanks. I'll get right on that. And in the meantime, you work on your reading comprehension and Freudian slips.
