Yep. I did it. Wrecked the jeep. :( 10,000 worth of damage. I almost threw up when it happened. And it has only 8100 miles on it. Broken knuckle, bent axle housing, bent upper and lower control arms. Mounting brackets for lower cracked welds. Jacked up radiator support. Both fenders, hood? Air dam behind hood. Track bar and brackets, one stabilizer, tie rod. Blugh I just threw up.

No it was mine. I just had it detailed and the carpets still had that wet feel. Some lady stopped real fast in traffic and when I hit the pedal my foot slipped off. I fumbled for prob a couple mil. seconds and got back on the brakes but it was to late. I hit an 08 grand cherokee. Didn't do hardly anything to it. I hit right on the right side of the frame mounts on the bumper which folded easy and the bumper got the tire. Hence all the damage.

Plus. Now they are trying to total it out ! I say horse shit. It's worth 30,000+ , the estimate ended up being 13000. The body shop says they can't total it. They gave me the option to keep it and they will make an offer Friday for me to keep it and I can have it fixed. Any thoughts?

sux bro just wait and see what the off is, if you can keep it cheap enough its usually cheaper to upgrade stuff than to go back stock anyhow.

Well it's totaled. 17,500 for repairs. Lol. That's stock parts. I can build a hard core rig for that. Any ways. Best thing is its worth like 5k more then I owe and it WAS an 11. Easy decision. 2012 here I come. Maybe a couple more options this time. Any suggestions?
