So I've been talking to this chick about buying her Jeep comanchee for between $1000-800(no price worked out yet) has rebuilt motor, tranny, new clutch with recipets and new paint as you can see.

The prob is she hit a poll or somthing needs a new bumper grill, and not sure what else how bad the frame is bent. Does it look like it would be a east fix or not worth it at all.


Honestly I don't have a clue at all.

from the pics the frame looks fine it is all just sheet metal.I would guess $400 approx.

I would still do it.Got Sledge ?
IMO if the tweak is before the suspension no worries as long as you get it straight enough for a bumper.

I don't think it would be to hard to fix but like I said the old man should be able to give a good idea as to cost

bolt a chain to the frame rail wrap the chain around suitable tree or telephone pole and back up hard enough to pull the rail into place it's a beater doesn't have to be perfect does it?

It doesn't really matter to much cause it's a unibody and that part of the frame is just to hold the rad support and something to bolt your fenders to.

I beg to differ here it is a structural part of the truck in case you may have forgoten about a steering box and track bar suport and do you want the truck to drive straight ar would you rather it dog tracks down the road and wear you tires out but I guess if you don't care about your safety or the safety of others then yeah go ahead and drive it [1d]

I just don't like people giving wrong or unsafe advice there are too many people out there who pull wrenches that shouldn't and it's one of those pet peeves of mine
