wife hit curb in my Jeep.......last night

After an my emotional event........the Jeep is at the dealer. Had to be flat bedded since it blew both rh tires.

Got the insurance involved at the moment pending air suspension review but for sure need 2 rims and 2 tires.

I know I ll need an alignment too......any thing else I should think of?

Flowers for your wife ... for all the nasty things you said.
And a box of candy ... for everything you thought.


It's just a Jeep.

Flowers and candy? I was thinking more along the lines of sending her to driving school!

That might result in you sleeping in the garage, however...

Funny, my wife hit a curb in an empty lot. Was so mad. Handle with care is my advice. Haha

Get rid of the wife? Lol!

Seriously though, I understand. My wife ran over one of those concrete stoppers at the front of parking spots (in a car), busted a hole in the transmission pan, then drove it 30 miles home. Car died right at the end of the driveway.

Re: wife hit curb in my Jeep.......last night

I have a stock 18" set of rims/tires for sale! You only need two right now, but sounds like you'll be needing to keep another set on standby.

Sorry man!

Re: wife hit curb in my Jeep.......last night

Oh no...
Well you might feel better OP when u read my story: Washed truck this afternoon and was going to inlaws but decided to grab some mexican style slushies since it was hot today. After we picked them uo and started driving wife had placed them on the dash since she was carrying some other stuff with lemon and powder chilly. Well at a stop light EVERTHING fell from dash, her hands and landed on seat,dash and carpet!

How bout that?

Grab a set of 4 2014 rubicon 17 inch wheels off craigslist for $300 and get some thick 33 inch tires on there. Wife problem solved
