Yeah, it's BS. The unit frame would be tweaked to hell. That Jeep would never drive again.

My buddy rolled a wagoneer 4 times down a hill 12 hrs from home roof crushed in no window so he buys a bug screen tapes it to where the windshield was and drives back to pg like that true story Lol.

Buddy of mine rolled his TJ six times on the highway. Frame wasn't bent, windshield was perfect. He, however, was in hospital for about two weeks, and has never really been the same since.
It would have kept rolling, but a lamp post stopped him. Yes, I realize it's not the same as a ZJ but amazing, still.
Lol gotta love all these long distance diagnoses

Leather is even still moist

1 owner / garage kept since birth / only driven on weekends = perfect ZJ
Lol @ moist leather. Is that really from jeep quality?

The difference between an SJ and a ZJ is in the structure. The SJ is a body-on-frame vehicle. You could rip the body entirely off and the vehicle would be structurally sound to drive. The ZJ is a unibody vehicle. The roof is just as much part of the structure as the rails underneath, and everything in between. If it was t-boned at that speed, the frame rails would be bent in and the Jeep's structure would resemble a banana laying on its side.

That ZJ would never drive again.

Depending on the height of the hit, I wouldn't say it would never drive again, but it would certainly be royally ****ed. It might be capable of making one final limp home though.

You sure run your mouth a lot, I have seen plenty of vehicles in car crashes even ones with twisted frames that can still move under their own power.
