Thumbs up In Memoriam

We need an "In Memoriam" forum.

It may prove reparable, but my baby was hit hard by a distracted driver speeding on the interstate in the wee hours. Not even two months since I bought her.

I'm fine. But grieving.

John, I'm so sorry to hear this! I'm glad you are ok! Most jeepers say: "it'll buff out"....I hope so! Jeep us posted!

Glad you are okay, that stinks about your Jeep

As long as the frame is good, everything else is replaceable. I had someone pull out infront of me a few months back and my rig ended up in the shop for a month and a half. If all works out, you might be able to get some mods done you've been thinking about.

Good luck and keep us posted

Good excuse for some Metalcloak overline action.

Sucks about getting hit though, hope it works out in the end.

Took much longer than I expected to get things finalized, but it's not going to be totaled. Front end is in need of a lot of work, it'll be a couple of weeks. In the meantime my old bicycle is getting a good workout.

Glad it's not totaled and that you weren't hurt in the accident.

Will be four weeks on Saturday. I thought it would be done this week, but as of an hour ago it came back from alignment and they noticed it's stuck in four-wheel-drive. So, probably another evening without it, thank goodness the weather is staying warm a little while longer.

Such aggravation. Need a Wrangler for when my Wrangler is unavailable, and another Wrangler just in case.

People that can't drive are a problem, but I have Jeeper friends already passed and others dieing from cancer. Just saying............

To be clear, I didn't start this thread, or give it this title. Moderators chose to move this out of another thread for valid reasons.

I can certainly see the title can cause unnecessary concern.

Ouch, sorry to hear that. Living in Indiana, that's a big concern of mine.
