Pain in the ***. That new door cost me $160 from the only yard in the area with a green 96-98 door. Now my inner panel is broken.

I'm thinking, if I can find a moss green door with grey interior, I'll just swap out for that one and have my damn door proper. The Jeep just looks weird with 2 shades of green.
My old 98 was like that. It was lime a charcoaly color. And had a black door. Bigged the hell out of me. Hopefully a white door will be easier to find this time around.

Got a pic on the wifes phone, will put up in a bit. No mechanicals hurt but lm sure labor alone will total it out.

I hate working so hard to see it ruined by another. I'll be in dark hole for awhile beating my self up for not paying more attention if anyone needs me.....
Ouch... Bummer...

Collisions are the worst. Especially when you aren't at fault because there's really nothing you can do that won't land you in jail

All that work for nothing. Hopefully it all turns out ok and insurance doesn't total it! Good luck mano!

Thanx! I hope they dont either, but I think I'm Jus being realistic about a 16 yr old vehical.

Already told the wifey worst case I gotta find one on the intra-web and get my *** back to work! If I can find one with a 242 and a good rear end with no rust.........thats everything! I've fixed Jus about everything else in The last 8 yrs atleast once!

Ouch... If all else fails and it really does come down to the worst case scenario, hell! You got yourself at the very least a parts vehicle! At best, a trail rig! That doesn't look as bad as I was expecting... Not great, but possibly salvageable!

Had a completely chaotic day with the ZJ today. First I patched up my exhaust last night. Woke up late for work this morning.. Took care of that situation...But, hopped in the Jeep and it just cranked away. Apparently, when I fixed the exhaust the 02 sensor connection arced because its garbage and popped a fuse. After all that troubleshooting and wire chaseing It Idled like crap until I reset the ECU a few times and let it relearn everything and a trip around the block started out rough and died a few times turning out to be the right amount of time. Finally putting her to bed all fixed up and Pulls like Crazy now that there is no hole in the exhaust and idleing perfectly. *next week Water pump gasket.

Yeah, don't look bad but the front and the quarter panel are all "custom shaped" as well as the bumper now and the steering wheel is crooked as hell. Driver door don't open right either of course

It does look Awsome! But the thread is all speculation, no facts.

Adjuster will be out on Friday. Till then I guess the Zj goes in to work with me with a nasty blackeye!

At least 8.
This is the part that concerns me. I'm not a body guy at all so Idk for sure anything. But I know its not Jus a bolt up fix. That looks like a good lil bit of metal work.

Hood still lines up, and evap box didn't break!
