Post 71 kaiser smushed

Hey Jeepers I am in need of assitance. Over New Years I fixed my friends 1971 Jeep Kaiser and drove it on the for a while but put it in a good size tree when then pitman arm broke off the streeing shaft. The body tub is now 2ft from the orginal position and the radiator is sliced up good. The Front right spring is bent at a 80 degree angle. So I did a fine job at banging her up. I am trying to redeem myself in helping him fix it. I need suggestions as to where to get parts and what model it is. I know it is a 71 Kaiser but is that a CJ6 or 7. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Sorry about the Jeep, I've got a 71 also. First, and I may be wrong, if so I'm sure someone can correct me, but I beleive AMC bought the Jeep from Kaiser after the 70 model year, so the 71 is an AMC/Jeep. Although from what I've noticed on mine, I don't thank they changed much that first year. Definately not a 7, probably a 5 or maybe a 6, need description, either will bend when hit by a tree. Third, krage motorsports/jeepdoc, recently did business with them, good service and many parts, kaiser/willys overland, haven't had any dealings with them, but I downloaded there catalog and they offer about anything you could want. Then there's always JC Whitney. Hope you get her fixed.
If the wife didn't hate it so much, I might not love it so much.
