Exclamation Work in progress

Hello everyone, i am as new as they come and would like some help. 1) my jeep has been tipped over and the Apillar is tweaked and the roof is somewhat bowed up. the windshield is trashed. and the driver side long window (its a two door) did not break but some how slipped out of the frame. not just the glass but the whole assembly. any direction on how to correct any of this?

I'd cut the top off, cage it and buy a Honda Civic to drive down the road on rainy days... but that's just me.


The floor is flat. Replace the floor with sheet metal.

a friend of mine runs a side business called classic to current fabrication. we bought a lot of parts from him when I worked at the jag shop. that's where im getting my floors. I already explained to you what im doin with my hatch floor. don't worry though your floor isn't as bad as mine. you just got some engine work to do bro
