wanting so input

so, the jeep got rearended the other day and it bent a front lower controle are mount and messed up the fender a lil bit from the inside, put 2 very small dents in the tailgate and bent a rim and ruined a tire. now we were the ones that got hit, we were just fine (totalled the truck btw) so.. if insurance comes through and we get some money what would yall get (thinking about $2-5k in repairs) if you are looking at it you really cant see much damage, so cosmetics are not an issue.

Some of the specs..BDS 4" coils
jeepmedic engine skid
rustys radiator skid
WARN rock sliders
ARB front bumper
WARN 9.5TI winch
smittybuilt rear bumper and tire swingw/frame tie-ins, and hi-lift
tuffy fender boxes
RE ADJ front trackbar
PSC Hood louver
two 20" LED light bars on windshield
IPF spots on A pillars
duallys on front bumper
two 6" LED bars on tire swing
cobra CB w/105" whip
H4 headlights

thats all the bigger stuff i can think of right now

..First i want to upgrade to a sport cage, then i was thinking depending on how much i get, i need new tires anyway, so i was thinking about going up to 35s and 4.56s and maybe a locker if theres enough funds.. i would just like to hear what yall like and just get some input. i've been jeeping for 10 years and know what i could do, i'd just like to hear from my fellow jeepers what works for them..This is a DD and I want safty and good handeling both on and off road. thanks for yalls input.. please no flaming or **** talking thanks

Hello I've been wheeling with open diffs for years. Just got a older Rubi. Boy do I use the front locker. This spring has been mud city and I havent even came close to getting stuck. With the locker off I have but when I turn it on, away we go.I'd say go with a locker first. If you regear just make sure the new locker will work with the gearing you want. Happy Wheeling

I would at least have the tailgate fixed, if and when you go to sell it, it may make a difference to someone else who will beat you down on your price.
Whats left I would put into a set of tires.
