SHES ALIVE!!! my 5speed ZJ

So on January First I was rear ended by a tundra. I was fully stopped and she was going about 30mph when she rear ended me. This sent me into a camry stopped infront of me. Well then a Explorer hit the tundra at 35mph. I thought my ZJ was junk... The unibody was crunched in one spot and my rear doors didnt line up. Insurance deemed it totaled and I was bummed out. The let me keep it for $350 less and I got to keep the clean title. And I got it back from a body shop today and she's straight as an arrow! Good thing too because I couldnt find another 5 speed anywhere!!!!

Damn that thing really got pounded too. You should have TNT unibody stuffeners welded on just to make sure she keeps her shape.

She drives straight. I'll do another alignment. And yeah we'll make a back bumper and strengthen that up

I wouldn't have fixed it. You had better plate the ever loving crap out of the frame. The next accident will be significantly worse.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

I agree with rat monkey. I would have totaled it out. And buy a new zj and swap 5speed parts over.
