    How hard is it to do some minor repair to the engine bay frame?
    I have replacement fenders, a dented hood that i will be replacing with a better one and the subframe for the bumper cover and am keeping an eye out for a replacement bumper cover and better hood... It's so sad to see her sitting there day after day

    Tear it down and see how bad it is. You might be able to chain up to a tree and pull it back into shape. Doesn't look too bad from here.

    There is a little bit of the buckling up underneath the fenders right behind the bumper cover in a spot where it is supposed to buckle but like you said it should be relatively easy, we don't have very many trees but we do have an F 150 and a Ford Ranger so that might have to do

    Yep, chain and a comealong might do the trick.
