I slid and hit and curb and just missed a tree. left knuckle system broke into pieces, bent the c and the left side, bent and ripped all control arm brackets. The who front end needs replacing and i have school on tuesday. Jeeps are definently NOT RELIABLE CARS IF THEY HAVE ANY UPGRADES. They are very relieble if they are stock and i know if u buy one ur not gonna keep it stock cause the whole reason of buying a jeep if to modify it and have fun with it. I dont know what im gonna due about school on tuesday, maybe carpool or something, but im just sharing this so it doesnt happen to you. My jeep has givin my so many problems that id come to school late or absent. DONT LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU.

Dude, think about that.
Did you do anything to beef up your front end before putting those ridiculously large tires on?
How about before adding those spacers which magnified the stresses put on the steering knuckles?
Modifying a Jeep doesn't make it unreliable if you use your head when choosing your mods.
38 inch tires on 2 inch spacers is an accident waiting to happen on any vehicle.

I'm very sorry you had an accident and I'm glad you aren't hurt, but it's definitely not the Jeeps fault.

Arguing with a truck driver is like wrestling with a pig in mud, eventually you realize the pig enjoys it.

If modified the proper way, they can be just as reliable as stock. I never said it, but yours was just an accident waiting to happen. But I am glad your safe and no one was injured.
