Angry Jeep Crash!

So on Friday the 13th my wife was heading to the grocer when a 16 year old makes a left hand turn right in front of her causing her to clip his driver side rear tire. I'm posting here to show our unfortunate Jeep and to get a listing of everything that will need to be replaced and to kind of gather my thoughts.



Since the vehicle has been at a storage yard this is the only representation I have to account for what is damaged.

Looks like:

Hood
Fender
Door
Headlight
Front bumper
Front lower valance
Fog light

As far as the mechanical components I am unsure due to not being able to look myself. Any suggestions or advise is appreciated. He was labeled at fault by the Highway Patrol Officer so I'm fairly sure its clean cut case, just annoying to have to deal with.

Yeah and their insurance will pay for it. So why you going down this road??

Main wiring harness is in there but doesn't look like it got cut/damage in that.

tripplec what do you mean by going down this road? If you mean why am I listing all the damaged parts, I want to make sure their insurance company isn't going to screw me and cut any corners. Even down to the clips and push pins I want every single piece of plastic that comes off my Jeep to be replaced with a brand new one! I'm currently at a heightened state of pissed off right now due to our very first brand new vehicle being, smashed, undrivable, and held in a storage yard. We have to wait for their insurance company to claim liability until we can even get a rental. My wife is without a vehicle right now etc etc.

Nooooooo!

Means figuring it out if a auto shop is doing it.

Ok well unless someone sees it only a body repair shop would know all the items. I figure you can't take it to a shop of your choosing now.

I never heard of the later before. No rental, wait for claim etc. Not much of an insurance company if they're doing that.

Couple questions:

What year?
Where do you live?
What insurance company?
Did the fender hit the door?
Do you have more pics?

I can give you a quick estimate. I can't see all the internal damage from the pic, but could give you a good ballpark guesstimate.

From what it looks like, only the bumper cover will need to be changed, not the complete bumper (re-bar, cover, etc.)

The front may need to be realigned as it looks like a pretty hard hit. Happened to one of my older cars, a front corner hit, and they had to realign the front end.
