I GOT REARENDED!

HEYI just got everything completed,except for the dana 60 front and dana 70 rear. The glass tub didnt even get touched!! Buy those 4Wheel Hardware Full Double Tube Bumpers! There 1/4" steel and i didnt even get a dimple in them from a 40 mph Pontiac Sunfire...It bent my frame in two places and cracked every rear crossmember!!! When i slammed into the car in front of me i took out the whole back half of a 1998 Dodge Intrepid(tailights, bumper and trunk lid)!...'sigh'... now paper work-paper work-LAWYER-HIS INSURANCE COMPANY and NEW axles...'sigh'...now weeks of no wheelin' : (....sorry just had to vent...'sob-sob'...

Re: I GOT REARENDED!

Hope you were OK. Nobody likes when stuff like this happens. Look on the bright side..............$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ to fix the jeep. Sounds like it didn't hurt it too bad, so I'm guessing you are gonna have plenty left for upgrades.

Re: I GOT REARENDED!

i still have nightmares about the time i hammered a sniper that was parked in the road on a blind corner.my 6"x4" 5/8 thick angle iron front bumper hammered his left rear 38" bogger....he apologized a bunch and we went wheeling together that day... still gives me the willies when i think of that though...

Re: I GOT REARENDED!

What happens if they total your Jeep? Does that mean that you can't register it and it will be a trailer queen?

Just asking

Re: I GOT REARENDED!

Matkins address is www.matkinsextreme.com. I have one of there level one frames, they say everything will bolt up but Ihad to move my gas tank about 3 1/2 in., the motor mount holes were off about a half in. It's going to take some fabing to get my rear runck bumper to fit. Quite a few minor things that really slowed the process down, what do tou expect when your doing a complete rebuild.? I hope I just got a fluke frame because they said they haven't had these problems before(or maby nobody else called them on it).

Re: I GOT REARENDED!

I would not even bother with a used frame ....my $.02 ...As I explained in my post a while ago I just discovered my skidplate is cracking and my frame has more cracks forming than the Mona Lisa.
Those new frames look like they would hold up alot better ,bent tubing as opposed to that welded crap jeep used.that steel on the inside is thinner than the outside ....so basically you still have a C channel frame.
You should have got more $$$$ to cover the cost of swapping everything or cried whiplash and motivated them so settle bigger.screw that book value crap.
Glad you weren't hurt though.

Re: I GOT REARENDED!

If your looking for frames check out 4WD hardware. They started carring AFW frames I think the website is http://www.montanajeepframes.com/ I like their spring hangers better and the work looks cleanerl. Although I've had no experiences with them. It's worth checking out.
