I think I'm going to cry

I haven't even made the first payment......It's enough to piss you off. And the prick drove away. I had to chase him down.

Front bumper. I just got mine and was hit in a parking lot.

Back bumper. Than my husband put a wooden vegetable planter box behind my jeep and I ran over it. Planter box didn't survive.

I feel for you!!!

This is what happen to my jeep on day 5 of owning it. Some kid hit it with his truck in a parking lot. He had no insurance and wanted to make "payments" on the repairs. I paid the $250.00 deductible and moved on.

I came out the front door of my work one day to find my ZJ 5.9L on 35's bouncing from a front end hit while the guy was speeding off. I chased him 2 blocks in flip flops and he finally got caught up in traffic.

Caught him. Filed police report. Got $600 from his insurance company for more mods.

Well, then you would be in jail for murder.

If you're ever in Moab, you can have the rear bumper that I took off mine.

That scrape looks like it will be very easy to fix. Clean well, then use an ArmorAll type product. 303® Aerospace Protectant works even better

Should look like new when finished.

I hope you never have to shoot anyone because some DA is going to use this statement against you.

x2 stock bumpers are really thin and weak, at least the one I had on my TJ was. AME is a whole lot thicker and stronger. I c people thinking twice about pulling out in frt of me or parking next to me. I have also bounced off of a few rocks and only scratched the powdercoating.

Plus, this is exactly the kind of statement the anit-gun crowd will use to make their argument against guns, and against concealed carry licenses.

"Blood will run in the streets" because of minor traffic altercations, etc.

or

"Wild West Mentality" even though the "Wild West" had far fewer murders, compared to the percentage of murders to population, than most of today's large cities

or

"Tempers will flair and people will be shot" because of concealed carry.

In reality, the above almost never happens, throughout the entire US, where concealed carry is allowed. Statistacally almost zero incidents, even though there are millions of people with concealed carry licensees.

A calm demeanor is extremely important when carrying concealed.

Hence the reason why in NJ untrained individuals can't. Would you really consider that type of action over a dent.

But...

Even in states that do not require training, like Pennsylvania, incidents like that almost never happen.

aggravation: understood
repairs: minor hassle
"First Body Divot" anxieties: now immunized

I always used to react to the threat of potential ever-impending insult/injury to my rigs.

As a young adult long ago, I was prideful in having a gem-quality collector grade MB 220S sedan, last of the round bodies circa 1959, sitting in a grocery parking lot minding my own business. Old lady rams her grocery cart into the side of it for no clear reason. Minor damage but I about stroked out and went into ugly-mouth mode.

Turned out she was nearly blind and her husband was too crippled to get out of his rig to help her shop.

Learned a lot about myself from the fall-out on that incident.

Not like your deal, except the illusion in our Precious remaining unmarked...especially by IDIOTS.

No way out of the inevitable. Good luck.
