get your frame checked.

kthanks.

secondary damage like that can total a vehicle out. doubtful in your case, but just get it checked. its not hard, and doesn't take long. frame repair time in NOT something you want to pay out of pocket.

Hall Jeep in Fenton...I know its a drive but they do great work and are willing to work with you to fix it the way you want it...Insurance paid for the fix and it was cheaper than using factory parts!

now that i looked at it again i notice that something is deffintley tweaked look at the gap between the sides of the hood and grill

also does anyone think that a shop will try to repair the fenders
i hope not
new is $805 each and I may try to go tubed Which is cheaper anyways

Sure makes me want to run right out and replace my stock front bumper! Would have been soooo much worse with the stupid plastic stock ones!
