Friday The 13th Sucks!

So, the day started out well. Until I was on my way home from dinner and i got rear-ended by a 99 ford F-150. Then, I bumped into a 99 Chevy Blazer. I didnt get a ticket but my front and rear a crushed pretty good. My necks a little sore and I cant open my rear hatch.

Back in December, my 93 got totaled. I don't know if I can handle 2 totaled Jeeps in 2 months.

Do you guys think the insurance will total it. so far the parts I have added up that need to be replaced are:

bumper
air dam
end caps
bracket
rear bumper
rear end caps
rear hatch
bumper brackets
rear bumper brackets
fenders
grill
header panel
wiper motor
outside temp sensor

anyone think it will be totaled?
its a 98 2wd limited with 164000 miles. bluebooks at retail,6500 trade in, 2500 and private party, 4200.

IM LIVID! ha I'm not even 18 yet. good grief

Sorry there bro.

I'm not sure if thats a total or not but i can tell you that i got about $1300 from my recent rear ending on my 88 and it was only a damaged hatch and fuel tank... So you probably have at least 3-4 times the damage.

i got hit on the rear right door when my jeep was parked and the insurance company said they concidered it totalled and payed me 2300. Why would you have to buy it back?

well here in az if they total it, they get it. unless you buy it back form them. on my last one it was totaled. i bought it back for like 200 bucks, sold it, and ended up with 5 grand for a 93 xj country with 170k on it. not bad
