What kind of insurance won't cover you because you're 17? Do you have your own policy, or are you on your parents'? Or did you just have liability, which won't pay to fix your vehicle?

Maybe you should try Craigslist... if you type in Searchtempest.com you can search a wide range of Craigslist postings at one time.

17 has nothing to do with weather or not they'll cover it. What kind of coverage you were paying for does. Might wanna check the frame too before putting much money and effort into repairs.

Edit: And do you have a new philosophy about driving or does your sig still hold true?

I'd be a little worried about the condition of the frame. I'd get that checked out if possible. Depends on how you hit it and how hard of a hit it was. But i suspect that if the impact was hard enough to deploy the airbags the frame may be tweaked. Then again maybe not

Any pics of the front?

Sorry about your Jeep, dude. Even if the frame is straight, I can see this hitting you hard in the wallet. The airbags alone are going to hurt.

But remember: it beats being dead, or permanently disabled. Don't go to bed tonight cursing the fact that you wrecked your Jeep. Go to bed tonight thankful you were able to walk away.

It's easier to drive after you cut the airbags out.
