Fender modified by redlight runner

As I was going east through a green light, someone coming west ran the red turn arrow and turned immediately in front of me. I ended up t-boning his passenger side with the corner of my Jeep, with the tire getting a good whack too, which broke my steering box.

Total damage:
Bumper, Fender, Front grill, Steering box (the shaft snapped off right at the pitman arm!), light bezel, flare and light, assorted scratches on hood. Roughly $5,000 total damage with labor, paint, etc. But I'll get my Jeep back in a couple of days now with lots of mods to replace the stuff that got dented or destroyed, yay!

Got my Jeep back today!

And the fender looks a lot better now... plus Warn bumper to replace the tinfoil OEM one, and Bushwhacker flat flares to replace the cheap floppy ones that were on it. Now I just need to go out and get that shiny new fender as dirty as the rest of the Jeep .
