Re: how hard is it...

Sorry to hear you were in an accident. Hope the injuries weren't too bad and no one else got hurt.

Your going to need to be more specific. By front end do you mean the front clip body? The front axle?
both? Was the frame damaged or diamonded? ( Made into a parallelogram or trapezoid instead of a
rectangle)

Re: how hard is it...

This was my answer I copied from another place I post

Front clip. Hmmm, not too difficult, the 2 front body to frame bolts, 2 or 3 bolts per side
attaching the fenders to the firewall. Some wire harness to detatch from the inside fender wells,
you probably should remove the radiator and brackets. any hoses attached to the inside fenderwells.
stuff like that.

I dont remember if the battery tray attaches to the firewall or not. you may have to remove it to get
to the fender to firewall bolts. I havent done it myself yet but that should be pretty close

Re: how hard is it...

i think outlaw has done a good job of explaining the process. i have take the entire front clip off of my zuks when i replace engines...makes it easier to get at everything.

the toughest part of removing those phillip head screws on a samurai is that they strip out easily. make sure to apply plenty of heat to cook out the locktite. once you get the phillip screws loose, it is easy.
