Whatever you do, don't take the first offer. It may be different if you are in a no-fault state, but AFAIK most insurance companies use the same one or 2 estimating programs and always come in way low.

|ohioviper||Glad you are ok. Get a good lawyer and you should be able to collect for all damages to the Jeep including any mods and your health.Get them for every cent you can as your injuries could cause you problems later in life.Broken bones may heal but they will come back to cause you pain when your older.|

|mgola27||I'll echo what others have said. Glad you're okay and hope you have a quick recovery with no lingering after affects.|

|markwoodlief||WOW.. that really blows.. but its assuring to see how well the jeep held up considering. I travel with three kids and dogs to the mountains a lot and need that roll bar to be sturdy,|
|02-24-2013 04:38 PM|
|StephSH||Well this answers a question I had about the roll bar. My brother in law used to have a CJ7 and he said the roll bar was cosmetic, I guess now they are not. Glad you're still here and hope you have a speedy recovery.|

|jeepers29||Glad you are here to tell us this. Take it slow on the recovery, you don't want to rush it. Drunk drivers SUCK!|

Thanks for the kind words folks. Obviously the Jeep is a total loss. It really kills me
that I just dropped $1700 for Duratracs less than a month ago.
Most of the aftermarket stuff is damaged from the rollover. You can see it from the pics but when I went off the road I went right over a traffic sign and got a huge dent in the front bumper.
The drunk got injured but I didn't interact with him at all. I'm just letting my lawyer and the police sort it out.

Sorry to hear!
Glad you are OK (for the most part).
|02-24-2013 03:31 PM|
|chcg12||Thank God you are ok!|
|02-24-2013 02:36 PM|
|2five22||That Jeep is a total loss to the insurer.|

|xcoaste||Hoping you have a speedy recovery~|
|02-24-2013 02:23 PM|
Glad your ok OP.
Do you know yet if everything is going to be considered at total loss or can you salvage any parts at all?
|02-24-2013 02:22 PM|
|02-24-2013 02:15 PM|
Very glad to hear you did far better than just barely lived through it. Amazing pictures. Gas mileage be dammed....mass is a good thing when being struck by anything else.
One of the things I always want to know when considering a vehicle is how much does what I'm looking at weigh? Generally speaking the most weight I can buy for my money is a primary goal. When I see pictures like this is further reinforces that thought pattern. The Jeep was more of a lifestyle choice as there are certainly heavier options, but maybe the heaviest when it comes to a convertible option? For sure not going to catch me in a convertible minI I can tell you that much.

|jadmt||Any photos of the other vehicle? you were unlucky but fortunate to be alive I am glad you are able to type and tell the story.|
|02-24-2013 01:56 PM|
|Sasquatchewan||Sure glad your gonna make it bro prayers going up for a quick recovery|
|02-24-2013 01:48 PM|
|Ex Umbris Currus||I'm glad you made it out alive, just think how much fun you'll have wrenching on your new Jeep!|
|02-24-2013 01:34 PM|
|Strange246||DAMN! Glad you're ok!|
|02-24-2013 01:27 PM|
|Up Hill Bill||
Ouch! I hope your recovery is swift and complete.
And, enjoy your new Jeep! Are you going to wait for 2014s? Don't forget to salvage your mods, like those KC lights.
|02-24-2013 01:24 PM|
I never drink and drive and even ditched having a cell so no txt'ing distracted driving either for me... I wish I could record all the idiot distracted drivers and show them exactly how bad they do drive! I'll stop now before I start cursing but glad to know that the OP is ok...
|02-24-2013 01:09 PM|
|wfbill||I am glad to hear you are ok. It is refreshing to see the sturdiness of the Jeep. I just bought mine, it is my first. My thoughts and best wishes are with you. You needed an excuse to order a 10th Anniversary Rubi anyhow, right??|
|02-24-2013 12:55 PM|
|okstatemike||Here's to a speedy recovery for you and best wishes for a good settlement and future rig.|
|02-24-2013 12:54 PM|
|Jeaper||That terrifies me. Thank God there were no kids were in the back seat. I hate recklessness like that, including texting while driving. A single act can cause so much consequence.|
|02-24-2013 12:46 PM|
oh my, so glad you are relatively "ok" ... hope your recovery goes quickly. Just one more reason to love our Jeeps.
The words I have regarding the drunk driver are not family-friendly, so I'll just zip the lip.
|02-24-2013 12:42 PM|
|wrz0170||Wow. Glad you are ok!|
