I bought this box to try and repair it. Because of the big bumper cover I didn't see the amount of damage to the passenger side frame rail. Two usual options were to take it to professional shop or to take out the engine and then use the hydraulics to push the rail diagonally against the driver side firewall. I've tried several contraptions before doing it this way and to tell you the truth this was better than pulling the engine since it gave me more control of bending the rail in certain spots and not just one by moving the big orange rail back and forth.
After it was done I inspected the rail and found a hairline crack on the engine side which I welded. I am not saying you should do it this way but I think it's at least a step above yanking the car chained to a tree ;).

Thank you guys. All auction fees included it was $1800. I ended up changing everything on the front suspension which was not needed. Ball joints, control arms, tie rods, struts, mounts, links etc... all of that was around 500...
