How Bad is it?? or why you don't let your daughter drive your jeep

Daughter was driving after school today and someone slowed to turn (did not use turn signal til last second) she did not see them in time and rearended them, doing minor damage to both vehicles.She was then hit in the rear by a grand cherokee. front damage is manageable (fender, flair, grill, hood, bumper, 1 foglight) . damage from rear wrinkled right side to area in front of door and pushed windshield forward about 1/2" and wrinkled left side to rear of door and pushed windsheild about 1/2" forward

Aside from the obvious body damage, the frame is probably going to be the most important. You can fix doors, axles, shocks and what not, but if the frame is tweaked, the value of the vehicle drops significantly.

Bummer, don't want to be a party killer here but, no a body tech, but I wouldn't be surprised if the insurance company totals it.
The rear looks like it has some pretty good damage, and the tub sounds like its bent up real good.
New hood and fender painted alone may be up there in the 2k+ range.
If for some reason the frame is damaged in any way, then it's toast for sure, I hope I'm wrong, good luck, keep us posted.

If there is any damage to the tub, prepare for it to be totaled. Based on that tailgate it looks likely. The body work labor is what will total it. If it's totaled and the frame is straight, buy it back. You could get salvage take-offs and just get them painted. New body parts are $$$$$ and add up quickly.

I agree. The fact that the windshield moved is not a good sign.

Find a few local wranglers for sale online to use as examples of what your vehicle is really worth when the insurance company says its totaled and you get like $4k for it.

For some reason, the first picture made me think of that "Jeep on Jeep crime" thread in the General Jeep forum.

My sister managed to roll my dads jeep, and I think she even managed to back into a closed garage door and then later took the siding off the garage...I wonder what kind of sentence she would have gotten in a court of Jeep for defacing it so many times.

Let them total it, take the money and buy it back. All that will buff out with some TLC.
Considering that the chero did the most of the permenant damage it ought to be interesting to see how the insurance companies split the baby. Be sure to tell then that your daughter stopped with millimeters to spare and it was the rear end collision that pushed her into the car in front
