Yeah. Thats funny what kinda car you rear ended. My buddy basically stoppied into the back of an RL on his 01 GSXR 600. Basically totalled the bike. Time to make it into a drag bike. Where I work they make all kinds of drag bike shit; if you ever watch NHRA on TV, any of the ProStock Buells, my work made the rolling chassis. They made a lot of the Suzuki's too. Its insane. I'm not too worried about the damage to the Jeep, don't think I'll fix it. Its just a few dents, scrapes and shit.



Theres a bigger pic of it. Theres some dents above the rear fender flare, and dent from where the door landed on the mirror. The one on the corner on the back was already there.

Before you hit the trails make sure you get a rear recovery point on that Jeep

I'm new to this stuff; I took off the tire and part of the brackets, and I took off the gas can loop things. I wouldn't think of either of those as recovery points. Should I get some D-rings, or at least one, and mount it on the bumper? Or is the bumper too thin to mount one on? What should I do?

Put the gas can loop things back on. I have been rear ended and taken out the front clip of a mini van with those things. I have used them as recovery points for years and they work great. If you no longer have the original bolts make sure you put them back on with high grade ones. Front and rear recovery points are a requirement for 99% of trail rides

what you have right now is an exposed frame member in the rear. the bumperets are at least something in the rear.

OK; so basically if I got rear ended, the frame would likely be damaged because there is no bumper? So either get a bumper, or put the loops back on? I just really don't like the look of them, but if they serve a purpose other than holding gas cans or somethin, I'll put em back on. I don't have the money to get a tube bumper, or I would. Damn I hate how those damn things look on the back though. But I would hate a totalled Jeep more.
