as much as it sucks to loose your wj its gotta be nice thinking about a new one
Yeah its sucky to lose my WJ, but I think the transmission might have been on the way out so the wreck may have been a blessing in disguise. Now the challenge is to find one in nice condition.

I'm glad I'm alright too. I'm still just crazy sore from where my seat belt got me. It hurts to do almost anything. You don't realize how much you use to abdominal muscles. I got all check out by a doctor, they did chest x-ray and no broken rips, did some blood work to to make sure my liver wasn't damaged and that came back fine except for a high white blood cell count, but that can be attributed to stress. And I now know first hand how safe a WJ can be. I went for one heck of a ride.

haha page 666.

anyway. found out im gettin 2300 buckaroos from the lady that backed into the jeep last weekend (she INSISTED on paying me out of pocket) . i found a new fender for 80 on rockauto...that leaves 2200 for me to play with. sounds like a 3" lift (Kolak or IRO not sure yet), bumper, new headlights, wheel spacers, tires to put on my new Moabs and a winch to me!!! Whohoo.
It's turning out to be a blessing in disguise gettin hit and all.

also found out about a Aussie brand winch called Tuff Stuff. has anyone heard of them? they have a 12,500 lb winch for 299.00 not sure to be too cautious or really excited about it.

Justn glad your alright, but that'll buff out boss haha

Replaced the rear driver side hatch support. It lifts noticeably better , but not much so maybe I need to do the other side as well. The trick is to undo the bottom part first while holding the hatch ALL the way open. I undid the top while the hatch was not fully open and the piston popped up, almost breaking my rear glass. Love when a $15 fix lends to a $200 one or a 5 minute fix lends to a 3 hour one. All is good and I also replaced my battery and terminals.

Let's see... finished up my double din install by wiring up a license plate mounted reverse camera, as well as wired an ipod cable into the glove box. I also swapped out the two broken exhaust manifold bolts (driver's side, rear two). Productive day!
