Got it almost completely torn down. But maybe tomorrow shell be apart and I'll take her over to the machine shop as soon as possible.

Since I'm going this route instead of buying one, I have an extra grand to spend on the dub. Thinking rock sliders, new gears/diff fluid, and get my blower motor repaired. Anyone know about aftermarket steering wheels on the WJ?

HOLLY **** and you made it out of the fiery explosion from a rear collision in a Grand Cherokee........

We got hit in the rear as-well this summer, we also survived the explosion . Must be the summer of WJ's....... glad everybody was OK.

The transfer of the impact does not look good being that far forward (upto your door jam). Have the insurance clowns looked at it yet, if so will they fix it.

I got the same sliders but bought directly from IRO. They are a nice pair, very stout and heavy. First one was a major PITA to install though.

Haha yeah, I was telling people how happy I was that it didn't burst into flames. The jeep is lifted about 4" total (3" suspension, 1" tires) and I was hit by a 99 F-150. The stock hitch appears to have taken the brunt of the hit, so I'd say Jeep is correct that installing a hitch will help keep the gas tank safe.

As far as the insurance, someone should be looking at it in the next few days. I'm torn as to whether I'd rather have it totalled or fixed and I'm not sure which one they will do. Even the front door doesn't open smoothly and the rear door binds pretty badly. Surprisingly, the hatch opens and closes just fine haha.

Figures, I find a super mint, low mileage Overland, which I'd say is pretty rare, and some dumb ***** ruins it 6 months later.

Not as exciting as not bursting into flames... but I did have to change the battery. $91 at Sam's Club, 3 year warranty, versus $125 at Auto Zone for the same thing.

I didn't have any warning that the battery was dieing, came home from work, did some housework, went back out to get some groceries, and Click, lights out. No dome, no radio, no locks... nothing, just dead.

I would be hesitant keeping it.........with the damage going that far forward. These things seem to never be 100% true after a "multi-point" collision, plus than its R title and worth ALLOT less.
Maybe apart out, or trail rig probably a pay off or part out,would be the most economical decision.
I would not accept there first offer, ALWAYS get a second opinion or do your research if its a pay-off.

Yeah, but when we have an anti-energy man, who says energy prices will "necessarily sky-rocket", he is playing to the environmental crowd and has no intention of helping the industry to bring prices down. All we have to do is start drilling.
We can become oil independent from the Middle East.

I got rear-ended by a motorcycle and the dent was pretty much in the same place, but it didn't push any of the body forward like yours. It was $2800 to replace the liftgate, paint, & little things. I hope they don't total it.
If they do, take what you can off of it, before they take it. I wished I had taken my rock rails off the OverLand that got T-boned.
Keep your CD cartridge, extra keyfobs, etc.

A local business that specializes in hardware, hydraulics, etc. they are 12m x 2" with 1.75 thread pitch. I got this info searching on here and first bought the wrong thread because of bad info. On mine the lowers were the only ones tapered but i replaced the uppers, also. However, the stock uppers look about 1/4"-1/2" longer than 2". I didnt measure but the 2" worked. I may change them out down the road. Also don't fotget 4 12m washers.
