Default My 1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport

I just got a 1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport for $500. The last owner wrecked into a mailbox with it and backed into a dirt mound.

So far the easy things for me to fix are the Header Panel, Right Fender ,back Bumber and the tail lights witch already have two new ones.

The owner said the back was buckled as seen in the image. Can I unbuckle it by pulling it back? I don't have the Jeep yet and get to go get it next week.






So as you can see it needs alittle work.

But the inside is perfect.

I would make sure the unibody wasnt damaged in the wreck. I had a jeep that was wrecked the exact same way and the unibody was bent. The body shop where I work threw mine on the frame machine and pulled the quarter till it was in specs. Mabey thats something you could look into.

Yeah my main concern is the the back where the bumber is pushed into the back and pushed in above the flare.

Overall I can replace the fender and header panel very easly.
Just woundering if I can pull the back corner back alittle to where its suppose to be.
Looks like tho it was just pushed up from underneth. He said he backed into a dirt mound.

So can't wait to get my hands on it and work on it. Make a good project for me as my red Cherokee is basiclly done, just need some little work to the rockerpanels.

Yeah I would be concerned about frame/unibody damage as well. As far as the front end damage.. Looks like its been wrecked more than once by the old bondo that is cracked on the fender.
