Losted my YJ

A drunk ran me off the road. After jumping a ditch and flipping head first than side ways. The drunk just keep going and did not stop.

Now I'm looking for another Jeep that I can afford.

Thanks to the roll cage I'm alive.

I'm glad you came out of that ok. Like others have said, the Jeep is replaceable. How is the chassis? There might be a possibility you could save some parts from that and use it on your next rig(providing its another YJ)

How'd you know they were drunk?

Glad you're okay, that looks like a pretty serious roll

You know, considering how the wheels still look aligned (they are turned) I think he might have done just that.

Glad you are ok, hopefully you described the offending vehicle and the police get lucky when he tries to repair it.

Wow... I'm as well glad you're okay. I'd very furious! Looked like you had a nice Jeep and I hope you can find another one.

Depending on the shape of the frame you could always try to rebuild it as well. That is what PO did to my YJ.

Looks just like mine. My dad totaled it when I was 8 in a similar manner when he fell asleep at the wheel. He was fine and the Jeep is mine now and I drive it about twice a week.
