jeepers29 Wow, three accidents where vehicles were totaled and no loss of life. I am glad to hear all in your family are healing and well. I would be a little hesitant to get back into a car at this point. Anyway, welcome to the TJ side.

MYKIDS95YJ I guess I should move over to the TJ section

MYKIDS95YJ It has been a rough year!

A few weeks after my last post (fathers day)
We were in a bad crash in our 2013 ford explorer,
Kids both got bumps and bruises
I have a broken back( crushed L1)
My wife has a chattered cheek ( really bad...6 hours of surgery, 1 after that, and more to come)
We are healing, so blessed that we are all alive and have a lot of support
We were going 55
Guy going 75-80 runs a stop and t bones us
BAD Crash......

Even though the explorer did a great job, she did want another one
She wants a tank
We got her a 2013 Wrangler Unlimited Moab
We could drive for a while
My son was running all our errands
On his way to pick up his sister from practice (she has a 2001 XJ, just turned 16, still on learners )
He is making alert with the arrow, women runs a light, t bones the green YJ
He is ok( just shaken up, he was in our other crash)
The YJ is totaled

I looked for a month, could not find another YJ I like
So we replaced it with a 2005 TJ
05-26-2013 09:39 PM
MYKIDS95YJ On the replacement YJ drivers door paddle popped out

Turns out the PO inserted the retaining clips and bars upside down

Kid and I got the back in there
I figured out a trick!!!
We also need to do the passenger door (it is loose)
We will try to do a video clip to show shortcut!

Nubby55 leave the Alum wheels they look Much better than Black.
05-20-2013 07:24 PM
MYKIDS95YJ It sure is quiet with that hard top

I think we will paint it
05-20-2013 02:21 PM
p0larb3ar That green would look real nice with black, just change the spice top to black and your all set

Glad everyone is ok.

89Saharagreen There is a junk yard in Portsmouth Virginia with 5 YJ's in various stages of decomp.

I am sure he has a frame to sell you
Johnston Mustang salvage yard in Portsmouth near Naval Shipyard. I got alot of parts of them when I was there for a week.

SquareLite Glad the jeep is the one bent up and not your son. I agree with the other post, take the opportunity to have another project with your son and make all the changes your wanted to do on the other one.

Oh did he hit the Buick hard enough to leave a JEEP logo impression on the back!!!
14 k worth of damage to the Buick

And to all the smitybuilt haters
it is hardly bent
