Jeep TJ Roll Over Body Damage Repair
The first thing we had to do was remove the windshield frame and a section of the rear roll cage from the damaged area of the body. Don’t worry we will be installing a new Cage and tying it to the Frame and adding some reinforcements . But first we must straighten out this body. As you can see the roll hit pretty hard on the right rear corner of the cage that transferred in to the rear body panel. As it collapsed the rear wheel well it pulled the right rear corner forward and twisted the tailgate opening out of alignment.
In the pictures below you can see us using two porta-powers to direct pressure in two different directions at the same time in order to raise the wheel well and push the rear corner back in to its original position to close up the gap at the bottom of the tail gate on the left side.
Some times this works better then others but in this case all went as planned and every thing went right back to its original position as you can see in the photos. andtailgate.
