So this happened.. no off-roading for awhile

Recommended Posts

I was in an accident yesterday evening. Thank God both of us we’re ok and walked away without any injuries.. but unfortunately the Jeep will be out of commission for awhile until insurance handles everything. I was going from the parking lot to the lane to do a u-turn, and he was driving on the wrong side of the road. Didn’t see him till last min. He rammed my right tire area and slid along the side step. Broken wheel well, suspension, and tire rod. Bumper and fender took a hit too. Not sure what else went on underneath. Too soon to tell.


I was so excited about my back to back off-road trips this weekend.. but everything happens for a reason. This is only a setback, not the end! She and I will come back stronger💪 See you all on the trails again (hopefully) soon❤️2D9C873E-8D87-4433-A2A2-2F887CF29DB5.thumb.jpeg.54e8f0641d48fc2f3ac5a176c358d1d9.jpeg

Youch! Glad you're OK. You're right that its "just a set back". Hopefully they get you sorted quickly.

 

It always amazes me when I see these sports cars that run in to Wranglers. Outwardly they always look OK.

I was afraid this is what you were going to post, so sorry this happened to you and it's good to hear y'all made it out without serious injuries.  If you have any questions/need help with insurance stuff message Sarah @Large_Marge, she's been working in the insurance industry for over 16 years and is very knowledgeable with car accident stuff.  I hope everything goes well getting this situation squared away and you can get back out on the trails sooner than later!

Yes! The impact felt worse. I thought for sure the jeep took more damage than it did. That poor small sports car tho.. Jeeps are tough, but one of the responders told me the tire size is what saved me from more damage.

How the heck was he driving the wrong way?   I am glad you are okay.  Hopefully you'll get your jeep back soon.

DANG! I'm glad you're alright and your Jeep is mostly alright too! Unbelievable that car was going the wrong way. I would caption this pic 'I'd rather be a Jeep than a Mazda'.
