    I get a call today asking me if I had my truck (i dont, its 2 hrs away) cause some rookie wheeler rolled his jeep. Anyways, long story short, I got to see the jeep after someone rolled him back over. One of his friends was saying "its fine...you can get it fixed." I was just shaking my head saying....its totaled. Anyways...heres a pic. 4 people were in it and nobody got hurt. It just went onto its side then onto the top, not multiple rolls.


    I told him at least he has a good excuse to make it a hardcore wheeler now.:doah: :D

    Body damage + Cherokee = BAD. That's the end of that vehicle, IMO.

    As long as no one was hurt, sheet metal can be replaced. Oh, and a good roof rack would have stopped it from going all the way over.;)

    as would a pair of truck nuts hanging from the rear bumper.

    being a unibody vehicle, its pretty much done. fixing it would cost more than its worth.

    Yeah, that surely is not worth fixing, or fixable for that matter. Unibody is definitely one of the many reasons not to have a jeep.

    Sawzall the roof and cage it. For an off road only wheeler it would be fine.


    Do I see new swampers in the back ???

    actually the cherokee has stamped frame rails welded to the body. I would cut the roof off, and weld in some good rock sliders with a cage. Should be plenty strong.
