Eh, as long as you get the part that the fender bolts to straight, I think I'd cut away the rest, especially if you're going to be putting a real bumper on it with that insurance check. I've seen plenty of guys cut off the whole piece from the frame rail out, leaving only the piece of steel connecting the two rails. All you really have to move is the evap can.


Only example I could find atm.

sadly that is not mine , i got the idea from someone who was on the forum previously and they did most of the thinking already

a little cutting and welding of the front fenders of the wj onto the fenders of a zj , paint and some creative mounting and thats about all to the job

the hardest part is the measuring to get the lights flush with the fenders

I'm not an expert, but I have a bit of experience, and it looks to me like the damage is all to the superficial body, and not to the unit frame, which means it can probably be pulled back into shape. Worst case, some cut-and-weld action.

I did this to an RX7 once. Looked like this:







Luckily, the superficial body took all the damage and spared the frame (which is much softer than a ZJ frame I might add), so it still drove straight and could have been fixed for probably a few hundred dollars. (Plus used panels) I'm glad I didn't, though. Selling that car's what got me into my Jeep.

I'd be willing to bet your damage is the same story.

replaced the o-rings on the compressor last night and charged the system with fresh 134A, now it blows COLD! hopefully it wont leak out again, lol

also decided to do something about the ac drain before it became an issue. used a hole saw and drilled a hole to access the drain tube from the fender then added a piece of old preformed heater hose i had at the shop so that the water drains out in the fender instead of inside the body structure. working great!

Yesterday me and a friend replaced the track bar (got 65mph death wobble on the way back from the used car lot) and muffler (the one on it is rusted). Im buying a new Serp belt (is screeching) and a valve cover gasket (its leaking) today. Fixed the truck latch (wouldn't open).
