I slide off the road today, into a deep ditch and buckled the body on my jeep, not bad but you can see two small dints on the bottom under the doors on both sides. :smiley11:.

GOt to go tuesday to see if the drive train or anything else is messed up and meet with the insurance guy. They told me I should have a check then. \


Not sure what it will cost but I am sure the panels or entire body will need replaced, if they give me the option, think I will just put the cash on the loan and leave, it as it is just looks and not mechanical.

3 dam weeks and I would have been on the beach out of the snow :smiley21:

:smiley21: Sorry, bigman!
Body work is easy, fixing a frame...the car never drives the same--unless it is a race car. :smiley5: I should know...

If there isn't frame or mechanical damage, you might not want to run it through insurance. Claims generally raise your rates for the next 3 years, so I have opted in the past to fix my own damage rather than pay more in insurance rates.

yeah I think I fell off the face of the earth for a while! Finally started working full time, the wife deployed, then the wife went tdy for a while again so I've been busy. Have a friend down in Louisiana talking recently about being at DEMA and it got me to missing the water.

and yeah I remember the pond. I still talk about that dive! How have you been?

it is like 11 here, I am cleaning all my hunting stuff out for the trip to the shop tomorrow, had a local guy look at it and said the frame and everything was good, said the shake might be the alignment got knocked out. He said the could push the dents out cheap, though I think push them out means bondo, ant going there. WIll know tomorrow morning what is up, likely I will take what they give me and let my school fix it right. The rocker panels are real cheap any way
