Just a minute ago I just bought my donor over the net on a live auction 2000 kms away!

WK Jeep Grand Cherokee 2009 with a 5.7 litre V8 HEMI!

Gojeep - congrats on scoring your donor! I'm curious what all you're planning to use since the WK wheelbase is 8.5" shorter than the Willys? That Hemi should move your truck pretty nice!

Just read the mileage on it for the first time and it has only done a bit over 20,000 miles!

Wow, that should be cool. Great find, and I had a lot of fun going through your project page there. Got to love those unibody Cherokees.

Me wonders why the French that airbag didn't go off.
Not enough strait on frontal impact to trigger the air bags. If you have ever been in a car where they go off, they are not nice and gentile. The engineers figured out that unless there is a lot of forward energy to absorb that all they were doing triggering airbags was beating the stuffing out of people.

I agree about the side curtain going off, that could not have felt good for the driver................... :eek: hey the wheel is on the wrong side. :D
Agreed. When I rang the old owner he actually thought I was from Jeep and wanting to know more about the accident to investigate why they had not gone off. If he can break 5 ribs from the side impact, think it should mean it is hard enough to deploy them!
