Same thing happened to me. Make sure the body shop & adjuster look closely at the gear box, draglink, and tierod as mentioned above. They all got replaced by the insurance.
I had the check issued to me. I had my jeep at a 4x4 shop and had the evo draglink flip kit ordered up along with a Rough Stuff tierod and OEM gearbox. There was only $150-$200 difference IIRC.
The housing needed to be replaced for bent LCA mounts twisted and bent tube. The 4x4 shop argued that the R&P should be replaced and add an overhaul kit because "there could be micro cracks in the gear teeth and they could fail. Possibly catastrophically.'' After a few calls the adjuster agreed to replace the entire housing & gears, with overhaul kit. The adjuster even said the dealership he called recommended a new carrier due to the accident, so he included it in his too.
I got a used D44 (timing is everything). I think total out of pocket for the front end was about $1k. Oh, and I that included the ACE fender flares. The stock OEM fender from the dealer is $$$. According to the estimate, it was just over $300 for the flare, support, and hardware.
