Bent and a little broken

Another new guy, hey there! I just got my jeep from my son after he was rear ended by a F-250 super duty 4X4 . I want to get it driveable and use it around town. The project in question is a 2000 TJ sahara 4.0 automatic
154,000 miles They were in a 45 mph speed zone Ryan was stopped and pulling into a gas station .The guy must have been looking else where because the skid marks were very short. It knocked the jeep about 40 to 50' into curb and a tree. bent one steel wheel bent the tie rod crushed the rear quarter bent the steel bumper dropped the gas tank a little one side the back window disintegrated and cracked the hard top. My goal right now is to replace tie rod with the napa ZJ upgrade. get a new wheel do a alignment and start using it doing small repairs as I go. Complete repair not in my budget all comments and ideas welcome. So thats the reason I call it Jeep junk. P.S. we drove home truck had to be towed ! The long skid mark was after the impact notice how short the pre-impact marks are.

Ya gotta love the pure punishment a Jeep can take. Hope your son is 100% looks like the Jeep is around 65%. An the KO on the truck is cool. Looking at the plate is that a cop or firefighter?

He worked for a medical equipment company, and never asked how my son was . all he could do was to try and blame my son, first he said he had no brake lights then he tried to say my son was on cell phone. I showed the cop the lights worked and he was not on phone. the reason my son stopped there were kids on sidewalk. he was a real ass and after I saw his attuide I made sure he knew this was not over. The boy well he bounces pretty good, he's getting better.
