Jeep Cherokee repair recommendations

Hi Guys,

Our 2000 jeep cherokee got rear-ended, and the insurance company wants to total it.

I've got a picture, but I can't figure out how to post it.

Do any of you have any recommendations for a shop that has expertise in repairing the unibody of a jeep cherokee?





Thanks,

Eric

Re: Jeep Cherokee repair recommendations

Really need a pic, you can host it on imgur and paste a link here.


On a side note, I have a 2000 I am parting out...hatch is good, rear structure is straight but a bit rusty. Let me know if you want me to save any of it for you, it'll be headed to the scrape yard next week.

Basically the the tow hitch was hit and it bent up into the unibody.

Re: Jeep Cherokee repair recommendations

if your rig is mostly stock, Id swap it for a another XJ only because the bend is in front of the leaf spring brackets. If youve already spent tons of time on upgrades, do a buy back and swap to another and part it out if you have the room and time. just my two cents

Followup: I got a 10 foot section of 2x2 trailer hitch stock from industrial metal liquidators:











Not perfect, but close enough!
