Re-build time! new axles, new tires, new shocks, some Tom Woods shafts, ooooooo I envy you. Not for the accident itself though, just the situation your jeep is in, and that cash. DAMN

Wow, that's a bad hit. Glad to hear everyone wasn't more seriously injured. I'd salvage all you can off the XJ (wheels, tires, etc) and build up the convertible Dakota with a nice roll cage.

Sorry to see and hear about the damage done. Glad to hear you made $6800 out of it though you may want to consider a full rear bumper with the tire carrier instead of that miniature swing out

[B][I]New Mexico Driving Rules...[/I][/B][LIST][*]As a general rule, the vehicle most in need of a significant amount of bodywork (for which the driver is most likely uninsured) always has the right of way.[*]Never use directional signals when changing lanes. They only serve to give away your next move, causing most NM drivers to speed up and not let you in. In fact, use of directional signals within most large NM city limits is actual illegal.[*]NM law states that at least 50% of all paved surfaces within the state must be under construction at any one time. In all construction zones, at least half of the available lanes must be closed, regardless of whether any actual construction is be accomplished or not. Construction signs shall be regularly repositioned in order to warn drivers about upcoming lane closures immediately after they pass the last exit before traffic backups.
[*]Driving through constructions zones with upcoming lane closures is a popular game in NM. Itís called the "speed up and pass as many cars as you can, then see how close to the lane closure you can squeeze back into traffic before hitting any of the orange construction barrels" game.[/LIST]

Yea looks like it's the ZJ V8 tie rod he swapped in. It has a weird bend right there, but it's much stronger than the hollow stock piece of crap.

Looks good man, glad to see you're back in a rig and able to wheel. Your passenger side recovery hook looks a bit twisted on the other hand
