My Friends TJ head on Drunk Driver Flipped multiple times

I just found this section so I figured I would post some pics of my friends wrecked Jeep. This happened about 4 years ago. He and another friend of mine were going about 50 and a nissan pickup hit them head on. The driver of the jeep flew out and ended up twenty yards or so from the jeep. *Note that the doors and top were on, he flew out of the window. He had to go to the hospital, because of a nasty gash on his face. The passenger stayed in and walked away with a few cuts. The jeep flipped about 5 times and ended up in a ditch about forty yards from the truck that hit him. The guy in the nissan didn't get charged with anything, and my friend didn't get any money from insurance cause the jeep had a rebuilt title. (It got flooded in Katrina, but he only had to replace the starter to get it running cause water didn't get too high)

Glad nobody was hurt, too bad your buddy isn't bright enough to wear a seatbelt. Bet he does now.

97 TJ Sport - 4.0/HP D30 w ARB/8.8 w LS/4.88s; 35s and flat fenders on 2.5 lift

84 CJ7; frame off restoration in progress.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

The winch, how much shipped to 29322. I know. I'm a heartless ***.

I don't blame people for their mistakes, but I do expect they pay for them.

Alright you Primitive Screwheads, listen up! You see this? This... is my boomstick! The twelve-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?
