Wrecked the Jeep on the way home. Maybe totaled. More to follow.

Did it crack the radiator? Looks like just a front bumper cover but could be smashed in, can't tell from the pic. Hood still looks good at least!

If your deductible is $500, might be worth it to total it out, get the insurance money, and keep it. Might come out ahead if you only have to replace the radiator and hoses. Will be hard to replace the bumper though.

Nick, it's amazing at how little damage that grille seemed to take, considering both the bumper and hood look destroyed.

I fixed the bumper for the most part with a big c clamp and a 4 in piece of flat stock. A chain and a tree. It's gonna get covered any way. I do need to figure out how I'm gonna do it though cause the end of the "frame" rails are mushroomed.
