So a lady ran a red light and smashed me and my Jeep a couple months ago. I thought the pics of the frame replacement process were interesting, so I thought I’d share. I’ll post more as the service guy sends them.

ETA: Added a couple new pics from today. New ETA is Tuesday.

Very suprising to see them replacing whole frame. Frame horns - 2' section of the frame that bumper attached to are replaceable.

Axle being replaced as well? Also an odd question perhaps but are the body points for frame attachment examined as well ?

The damage went farther back than the replaceable section.

Yep, new axle as well. They will also check the body attach points.

Same thing happend to my 2018 Sahara with 2000 miles. I figured when it went in that the dealer would miss so many details and I was right. I traded it in 24 hours after getting it back after waiting 2 months. There is just simply no way that low rate dealers mechanics are up to the task. You will have issues pop up years later from something rubbing because they missed a detail. I did get a great deal because the idiot dealer that I traded it into didn’t factor in the frame damage and they were the dealership that did the repairs. Either way it’s not worth the future gremlins.
