Yj Wrangler in Wreck - Need Help!
Okay so in heavy traffic yesterday, changing lanes from right to left. Looked over my left shoulder to make sure I could change when I looked back my lane had completely stopped. Clipped the back right of an Suv. Luckily I have (Had) a sturdy double bar bumper on the front which bent back pretty bad. Everything seems to be fine other than the bumper and front right fender except I was in 2nd going maybe 10 mph when it happened, and now my shifter doesn't feel like it goes very far into 2nd or 4th, thus two gears located towards the back of the transmission. Both still wind out just fine and still have the torque and pickup in 2nd, but there is a large clunk when putting it in 2nd almost as if something is being hit. Also it has a 2" body lift and the front right little square bracket got knocked out and lost. So If anyone can help me figure out the transmission situation, Body lift mount and if my bumper is salvageable please let me know! Thanks

The body has probably shifted forward on the frame. The hole at the top of the transmission tunnle is now to far forward and not allowing the shifter go back all the way into position. Check body and frame alignment. 1/4 inch may be enough to screw it up with a 2 inch body lift.
The bumper is going to be really hard to fix I cant tell from the photo if the ends have caps that can be removed or if it solid, if it has end caps you could remove them and stick a pipe/bar in side and try to straiten out and push the dents out. Hate to say it but it might be easy and more time friendly to just get a new one
