Haha there was some mud but nothing real challenging. Anywho. i went over the welds on the bumper again and made sure i didnt miss anthing. I need to finish grinding down the bumper. I will be making this into a air tank for my OBA setup, i just need to figure out a way to tap into the bumper. i though about drilling a hole and welding a nut over it so i can screw in the hose but that would look nasty. Maybe i can drill the hole then tap it. not sure yet. any ideas are welcome

washed off all the crap off the jeep, buffed some scratches out and on my way home from the store a car trired to cross the high way, i drove over the hood of his car, flipped the jeep, slid upside down, rolled back on to the wheels and hit a sign. not sure what iam going to do now, i could bang the dents out throw a new cage and windsheild frame on and call it good, nothing underneath seemed damage. my raditor exploded, taco-ed a rear wheel, and grinded down the hood on the pavement.

As my 3 almost 4 year old would say. That's a Bummer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hope you are okay.. Good luck, don't give up on the jeep. If you look around on here you will see that anything can be rebuilt. I'd just beat out the dings (ha ha) fix the major damage and wheel it.

Wow, how did you not get hurt? It would take some work but it could definatly be rebuilt. The important thing is that you are ok, I have never seen a rim look that bad before.

Sorry for all your grief. Nothing like someone elses carelessness making a mess of your jeep. Hope you are able to get it back on the road. You had made great progress.
