My 2013 JKU was rear ended this past Saturday night. Guy basically nailed the spare which cracked the tire carrier, skuffed the bumper a bit, and put a slight indentation on the tail gate. Fortunately I already have a check on the way to cover damages with the exception of the tailgate. The adjuster wrote the estimate based on hours to repair with the caveat that if the whole thing needed replacement we could submit a supplemental claim. The question I have is about the integrity of the tail gate. It only has the small indentation and opens and shuts effortlessly. I wander if I teally need to mess with it at all. On another note, another note, I have a new rear bumper and tire carrier in the way.
