The moral of the story is...

Post by dutchman on Wed Oct 03, 2012 8:20 am

Don't drive in parking lots that have Jeep Cherokees driven by old ladies because this can happen to you!!!







I was turning right on my way out of the parking lot and she was turning left. We both didn't see each other and this was the result. I was only going about 3 mph and she said she was going about 20 mph. No one was hurt. The officer that responded didn't issue anyone a citation and said we were both at fault. She ended up having her Jeep towed because the front passenger door wouldn't stay closed. Most of my damage was to the bumper, thankfully. There's a little bit of the sheet metal bent underneath the headlight/corner light I've got a little bit of the front valence that rubs on my front driver tire when I turn, but other than that it drives just fine. We'll see what insurance says, but it looks I'll be getting my new bumper sooner rather than later.

Bummer days dude. But on the bright side you do get that new bumper. What are you thinking to get?

This is what happens when you don't come on service projects. Next time I'm going to tell her to take out your whole front grill.

I'm confused. If you were turning right and she was turning left, how did you put your left corner in her right side panel?

I turned into the center lane to avoid the DB truck parked in the right lane. She turned into the center lane, instead of the left lane, we collided.

I'm taking it to the insurance recommended shop for an inspection/repair quote tomorrow.

Leaning towards the Addicted Offroad bumper. Kevin doesn't like the tube bumper look, but I dig it.

After talking with insurance company yesterday about repairs I think I'm going to take the check and order the bumper I want and do the rest of the minor repairs myself. I was surprised to find out that the repair shop for my insurance company wasn't going to put OEM parts on when they fixed it. Don't like that at all, so I think I'll do it myself.

I'm not a huge fan of the tube look either, but its not my runner.

Word. Brady should rock whatever he wants. If it makes my 4Runner look better in comparison, even better. Smile

I like Scotty's work, and I think the AOR bumpers are awesome. I'm just not a fan of the tubed style on an otherwise factory look. Tie that bad boy into an exo, and NOW you're talking.
