Body specialists - LJ potential damage extent?

I'm looking at this LJ with middle 60m for around $10,000. Haven't yet had a chance to view it in person.

From these picts, how extensive could the damage be AND/OR what should I look for in person?

Any suggestions for locating fenders?

Any other considerations?

Thanks, wep

you can get stock ones there, or you could do some tube fenders or something

It really depends on how this happened, if it was a low speed tree hit, it could just be the fender. If it was higher speed it could hit the axle, damaging control arms, transfer case and who knows what else

I agree. I would get a full rundown on how this damage occurred. Could be hidden damage that you are not seeing or that won't manifest itself for a while. Be careful with this one.
