OMG!! if that was my jeep someone would be walking around without a head and a neck full of $hit!! But it looks to me like the insurance company is gonna fix it unless you have replacement insurance. Then again insurance is a little messed up here in Alberta so it might not get fixed. If they don't fix it buy it back it would make a cool rock crawler or mud slinger!!
If you get a new one you'll get that new jeep smell again!!
Yes, that's pretty much it. A woman accidently executed one of those police high speed chase ending maneuvers by striking me in the rear driver's side quarter panel with her front passenger side quarter panel causing me to rotate 90 degrees, hit the median, catch a wheel and flip three times. We ended up on the roof, facing the other direction on the opposite side of the four laner. Fortunately there was no oncoming traffic at the time.
I would push hard to get them to buy you a new one. Make sure you stress the fact that it is a limited production model (even if DC is making a bunch more than they intended), the accident was not your fault, and that you will not pursue any personal injury claims if they buy you a new one, if not, are you sure you're not hurt? I'm sort of not joking.
They wrote off my Rubicon, and since I had a replacement depreciation clause in my policy, they cut me a cheque for the original dealer invoice total, plus two grand! This means I basically got paid to wheel a brand new Rubicon every weekend for the past year.
Ya just gotta love it!
Lunch time today I'm picking up my new 'ride'. It's a 2003 Acura RSX. And I'll be on the hunt for a project TJ to build up, in the meantime.
Here's a shot of a pocket rocket indentical to the one I'll be driving off the local Acrua dealer's lot today...
The insurance company has a contract with a local scrap yard/used parts dealer to turn over all written off vehicles to them. They have chosen not to part-out or sell the rig as is. They are going to rebuild and sell her as a unit.
I am getting all my offroad mods back, including the 33s, the AR767s, and all my skid plates and the stainless front diff guard.
I have decided to 'give' the parts to a couple of my best wheelin' pals (one who owns a Rubicon), since I was fortunate enough to come out of this accident smelling so **** rosey.
