  • carnage in the driveway.....

    I had my xj parked on the front lawn over the weekend because we had guests. My Dad, brother, and I have been fixing it up recently to get it running and fixed up. So when i got home from school today i drove it into the driveway and parked the 2 passenger side tires on our curb, its a jeep and it needed to flex. Later on i was downstairs on the computer when my mom walked in and told me she hit my jeep. I didn't know exactly what she meant so of course I decided to check it out. My jeep now has a lovely dent in the front driver side quarter panel. I got trail damage in my driveway due to a minivan accident lol. Luckily I didn't get it registered or insured yet because the insurance company probably would have totalled it, due to what I paid for it. I know THIS THREAD IS WORTHLESS WITHOUT PICS so here are a few to hold you off. The dent is bigger in real life.

          I've got $10 that says the van gets fixed first!

          Technically, your mom wouldn't legally have been responsible to repair the damage since it was on the street illegally since there was no registration nor insurance.

          But we won't tell your mom that. Let her know we are all expecting great things to happen to your Jeep at her expense! Oh, and tell her happy mother's day for me!

            Oh man, that's bad luck

            My mom once damaged my old XJ and she was feeling so bad about it that she paid for the fixture (even dents that came from trail rides) and she paid for the next three fill ups as well... may be you can talk your mom into that or right away into an exocage as FUBAR suggested!

            And Chris, I am with you one those 10 bucks ;o) The van gets fixed first...

                  Start looking around at the rear end of other Caravans. You will notice that your mom isnt the only person driving around with that particular kiss on her van. Seems to be a common aliement to that model.

                  On a side note.
                  Good to see the forums back up and running.

                    Hey G-tar-man!

                    I have to ask you a question. Don't forget I'm still new here. Are you Fireball's dad or something? Nice family tradition you started if that's the situation.

                      We're brothers, I'm 19 and he's 16. I guess posting pictures for him was a little weird.

                        OOPS!! My bad!

                        I didn't know there were so many youngsters here. Don't mean to call you a youngster, but at 37 I am old enough to be your mom. Technically. So you get to mentor your little brother?!

                          Yeah, I took him along last time and he basically learned not to go wheeling with a half broken steering box because we ended up getting towed home. We were trying to fix up the cherokee, I don't think the jeep is damaged other than the dent, and its pretty much ready to be taken to get inspected.

                            Well tell him I said good luck with the inspection and all. Shouldn't be a problem. Can't go wrong with an XJ! I love Jeeps but I have a soft spot for XJs. You will see a pic of mine hopefully soon.
