Everytime life craps on me it gets taken out on my ZJ.

As if the hydrolock two weeks ago wasn't enough.. I nailed a pole on the way to work this morning, stupid city of Lakewood refuses to plow or salt their roads. Unsure of the extent of the damage will get a look at it after it gets towed back home. Bad new, liability only as State Farm told me they refused to put full coverage on it when I bought it. Here are some pictures, if somone could convert them over that would be great. First set of pictures didnt work, here are links just add me if it asks unless someone can move these over.

good thing you had that bull bar on there. Otherwise you wouldn't have missed it entirely!

93 red ZJ 190k 4.0. Spent more money than I should have ...

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

Yeah, bumper peeled back directly where the mounting bolts are. Bull bar would have just crumpled anyhow but it would have saved it from a little frame damage.

Hah, the pole is fine. Was doing between 20-25 and it just broke traction and kept on a straight path like a missle. I think it held full speed, possibly sped up before I hit it.
