Mom reversed into a pole! '12 JK

Hey guys,

Unfortunately my mom reversed into a pole and dented the right rear quarter panel. The light seems fine and untouched everything is just pushed in. It is starting to rust so I want to get it fixed sooner than later.

Any idea of what we would be looking at cost wise for repair and would anybody have any recommendations for repair in Toronto, Ontario.

Honestly, I would look into trail corners if you plan on keeping the jeep or ever wheeling it. They would cover the damage and offer a layer of protection in case she does it again. They would be a lot cheaper than getting it fixed. I bet that's in the $1,000 range. Most places will give free estimates.

well first off I'd hit it with some compound and some wax to remove/protect against more rust. It looks pretty creased, so unless you are planning on replacing the whole rear fender, you may want to consider rear corner armor.

Thanks for the prompt responses. Which corner armour would you recommend?

AEV Corner Guards are THE way to go. Best such product on the market. They go for $300/pair, plus shipping and tax as appropriate.

As it so happens, I have a pair I can sell you. One is used, slightly. The other is brand new, never installed. I will sell for $175, which includes the $50 it will cost me to ship them. If you are interested, let me know.

Poison Spyder has nice corners as well, however at almost twice the price of AEVs apparently.

Get an estimate from a body shop?

Needs the rear corner piece, used or aftermarket tail lamp on the cheap, detrim the rt side of the tub and the whole tail gate,R&I bumper, blend rt side tub and tail gate, reassemble.

Just a guess here with local labor rates...

30$ tail lamp
50$ corner piece from Chrysler
2.5 hour replace corner piece
2.0 detrims
3.0 refinish time
0.5 ri bumper

So 5.0 body labor at 42$ an hour here = 210$
3.0 refinish at 42$ an hour = 126$
3.0 at 28$ per hour for paint materials = 84$
84$ paint materials + 80$ in parts = 164$ in taxable parts at 7% tax rate = 11.48$ taxes
Total = 511.48$ to repair it or there abouts as I guessed on part prices and labor.

Damage looks bad but definitely a easy fix. Remove the light. Pull it back out and slap some body filler on it. Primer and paint. That is a SUPER small area if its just that corner panel. And def not a $1000 fix. Try less then half that at most. I'm a body and paint guy myself but not in TN.

My spare tire carrier must be a beast then, motorcycle trailer came loose after going over RR tracks and slammed into the spare tire. Everything was fine, Trailer was Fd up pretty good. It WAS a V nose.
