Rear JK body parts.... I got hit damnit!

So, the short of it is the cunt-bubble behind me had more important things to do on his phone than pay attention to me turning ahead of him. And this is the result.

I'd say the Poison Spider flares held up great atleast








So, what am I looking at damage wise here (part/cost wise)? What parts are replaceable? What isn't? Is that all completely manual body work? The dudes insurance will contact me tomorrow to arrange a first assessment, then I'll have to make time after the first of the year to get some estimates.

Just wanting to know what to expect possibly. A quick search turns up no rear body panel or tub parts for the JK's...?

ETA: I'm seeing direct from Mopar there are parts listed. PITA to navigate them though.

ouch. could have been much worse.

as far as fixing, how much do you care about the body damage? if i were in your position i would just knock the end of the box frame straight, get a new light, move the license plate to the spare, and clean the paint up with a wire wheel and a nice even layer of primer and paint...then take the check and buy something nice

It doesn't say where you are located but I will gladly donate a slightly beat up stock bumper, factory hitch,and most of a rear crossmember to the cause if you are anywhere near Las Vegas...

Get an estimate, then decide if you want to fix it or do a 6" stretch with the money...

chkn, ideally if I can pull it out close enough I'll just get some aluminum guards. I'll probably go this route assuming worst case scenario isn't the insurance company saying "we found the frame and tub tweaked, the cost for parts, frame damage, and labor, etc Totals the Jeep, you'll have to accept this check and buy it back if you want money for the damages".

Best case scenario is it's only a few thousand in damage and they cut me a check. I'll put the difference after the guards towards the 5.3 swap. I have the 5.3/6L80E already, just need to come up with a bit more to afford the swap kit.

Ronson, I'm in Ohio. I appreciate the offers though. I already have a BFH rear bumper awaiting install, and it's a 4 door, so no stretch !

I found the body parts , but I don't know if you have a 2dr or a 4dr.
Go down to figure 60-651 it will be for the 2dr...Figure 60-652 will be the 4dr.

Thank you for that! It shows the exact same thing mopar.com does, only much clearer.

Well, Esurance (their insurance) did an initial estimate based on photos I submitted of $2077. They left off a couple things like license plate bracket but nothing major.

The only thing I see is, they quote all aftermarket parts. Can't I get my estimates and request they quote all OEM parts? Whether or not the cost is more or less it is my choice isn't it?

DON"T AGREE TO SHIT THAT FAWKS YOU! - AGREE ONLY TO OEM OR IDENTICAL REPLACEMENT PARTS!

Fuck what Esurance wants to give you - they're out to minimize cost. That's OK for them, but they'll fuck you to save a buck.
I suggest getting two quotes (from the two nicest shops in town) using all OEM parts.
If that's too much hassle, and Esurance is treating you OK, at least make sure they estimate it out with all OEM parts.

Fair is fair, and you're legally entitled to having your Jeep fixed properly (or at least having the budget to do so . . . )

Oh yah, I'll be taking the Jeep to a few places that are highly recommended.

I know the Jeep has to be restored to the condition before the collision, I just wasn't sure if they can force me into a generic tail light when the original was OEM because it is a 'brand new' tail lamp.

I would demand OEM. If you have an insurance policy, that policy may dictate the use of OEM parts or not when repairing your vehicle. But his company has no previous agreement with you. Don't agree to aftermarket parts. I'm sure some aftermarket parts are just fine, but in many cases there are reasons they are less expensive.

Good luck. Always sucks to have your vehicle banged up.

Got the dent from this



To this in about 30 mins with a slide hammer. I don't have a stud gun, and wouldn't feel safe using it around the gas filler any how so I drilled 1/4in holes for bolts, then grabbed on to them with the vice gripped end of the slide hammer.





I went back after this pic with my body hammer to smooth some of the body a bit. Not perfect by any means, but good enough to now wrap with some corners.

The filler neck area needs some more work, but for now all the exposed metal is smothered with anti seize until I get warm weather to mess with it more. Hell the tail light area is gonna get cut for flush mount LED tails so what ever.

Good work. Hopefully you had estimates and a final decision form the insurance company before doing anything. I got an estimate from insurance for $1600 on a job that cost $8600. They ended up covering the $8600 (what was cheap for a new car) as the shop did an incredible job, but to do a great job they blended the paint on the whole side front to back.

Hopefully you got the check and now have funds to fix and heck even upgrade some of that stuff

Esurance quoted $2077 and instantly sent me a check. I got quoted from a couple places before cashing the check and they all were within a few bucks of each other.

So in essense, Esurance was right on. So I've cashed the check and am getting quotes from Marcus for some goodies.

The rest goes towards the LS swap kit
