Edited to add a couple more pics.

Lady ran a red light today and hit me in my 1 month old Rubicon with only 1200 miles on it. I was turning left on a green arrow and she hit me going about 50. Front end of mine hit drivers side of hers. Factory steel bumper is pretty damn tough!

Looks like I’ll need new bumper, a bunch of front suspension components, front axle, fenders, quarter, lights, grille, etc...

Ridiculously shitty luck to get smashed in a new car, but blessed that it wasn’t about a quarter second later or she would have t-boned me.

I'm betting this is going to be way more complex to fix than first meets the eye based on the way the OP hit the other car. Frame being twisted would be a good bet.

Reminds me of my first car, one month old and rear ended at light.

Glad to hear you're OK, Joe! I hope the (I'll be nice by saying) woman burns in order for you to be made whole again.

It requires pain and/or loss of money to teach lessons, nowadays. Otherwise, the cycle continues and worsens rather than being nipped in the bud.

Yeah, I’m worried about this too. In my experience the damage is almost always worse than it appears from the outside.
