Death of my tj!

Tuesday evening bout 5 20 or so my wife and me were hit in the front by a truck tryin to beat a train. The old girl did her job a protected us preaty good! Aside from a few bumps and bruises and a couple broken ribs it turned out a lot better than it could have been. So if ur out cruzin tonite in ur tj or any jeep say a prayer 4 my superjeep!

Holy ****

Wow... glad you guys are OK. I'll send prays and good vibes to you, your fam, and superjeep.

At least you guys made it though with small-ish injuries. Take time out and heal up.

My grandfather had a phrase that he always used with me during though times. "If money can replace it.... it's not important." The good thing is that you're both safe.

Now pull all the parts you can...sell a bunch keep some and then buy another Jeep! If it's another TJ replace a part or two with a part of your old jeep (like your drivers side headlight bezel) ...this way superjeep can live on in your new ride.

The fact that the TJ was a body on frame vehicle is the MAJOR REASON YOU ARE STILL ALIVE ! That frame took, from what I can see, almost 90% of the shock hit, the body getting the rest. You did good. You walked away, maybe a bit sore, but you walked away. If there was ever an ad for the reason someone should buy a Jeep, this is it.

Glad you walked away from it! You might wanna look at a nice vacation instead of a new Jeep for now, unless you like sleeping in the dog house.

Prayer

Oh yeah, and...

Thank you Lord for giving us power to all 4 wheels and protecting us from daily breakage. We strive to lift out Jeeps closer to heaven, but not this close. We pray that Super Jeep is with you, and please forgive her for her rear drums.

Amen

No doubt your adjuster will suggest that a little rubbing compound will buff that right out.

Good thing you guys are ok. Don't settle on the first quote that thay offer I just played that insurance game last month. If I would've settled I would not have my TJ. she is my first and I don't think I can go without one after owning one. Rest up you guys have a lot of searching to do. Good luck
