Wrecked my Jeep :(

1994 Wrangler.
Was slick yesterday and was not able to stop and hit a minivan in the rear. No one was hurt, but the Jeep's bumper was bent in. The frame looks ok, but I didn't really get underneath and look at it closely.
Just sucks. I haven't even got the temp tag off yet! Only had it a month.
The two things I know are issues.
Front Bumper. Not a biggie. I can fix that.
The steering wheel is now upside down. No clue on why. Seems to drive fine and steer ok. There is a bit of give to it now.
Any thoughts?

If it drives and steers ok, then I would think that the problem would be the drag link. That's the rod that runs down from the steering box to the passenger side tie rod. Since it was in an accident, I would just replace everything. It's around $80 or so for all the parts in the drag link.

OK it seems to be swaying back and forth a bit. It almost feels like I am driving a boat.

Check your steering box Real Good, it may be cracked are the mounts broken. It is right behind the left side of the bumper, and may have taken a Bad hit.
