If you can't make it better why waste your time. No use repeating the orignal mistakes. I'm to old to push it that's why.

I am ok, more startled than anything. Just came out of no where and knocked me sideways. Bus driver was talking to a passenger, let his foot off the brake and rolled out into the intersection at the moment I was driving through.
I will be taking it to a body shop to see if they can fix it. I dont think the frame was damaged but you never know.

That sucks, I always worry about something happening to my 87 J20. If/when you get to fixing it I have a few pieces that may be of help.

That really sucks. Had to take out the rear flare. Looks like a nice rig even with the dent.

Crap !
Beings back bad memories of my 88 GrandWagoneer Foresty rig (another one I will not likey ever see the likes of again)

Looks repairable from what I can see.
(If you decide not to rebuild it let me know, I'll have to start collecting parts )
