Glad to hear your getting it back. Also hate stupid people who cause these kinda things by not paying attention or knowing how to drive properly when the weather is bad.

The other party's liability insurance is paying for the whole thing. It just took him forever to contact his insurances and got me paranoid at first.....I don't have the truck yet, but hope it is perfect as if nothing ever happened .....or they will see me again.

If the other party's insurance is covering the whole tab and does not have a restriction on the length of time you have the rental then I would encourage the body shop to take their time and make it perfect.

IMO the insurance adjusters do not allow the body shops enough time to do things right....only to get the job done and hide the flaws behind smoke and mirrors.

well, I've had the truck for about a week and it's back to the shop. I'd notice a vibration that seemed to start at about 87KM/h and didn't know what it was....I drove it for a few days thinking it might be the roads as they are really rutty lately. Well. The vibration didn't go away and is present from about 90km/h and constant to well over 140km/h....so it went back...there is definitely something outta whack...They took it out for a test drive and think it might be the wheel bearing on the opposite side that got hit. I dunno....but they better find the issue or they will get it back, and back, and back until it's right. It wasn't there before and sure as heck I'm not going to be satisfied until it is 100%.

Paint is fine and bedliner was redone....so it's just mechanical now hahaha

Well $h!t Hope they figure out what it is, and I'd take it back until it was perfect. When I messed up my truck, they redid the alignment and I would rub the swap bar at full right lock. And I took it back to them to have it redone

You can bet that I'll go back until it's perfect. I made that perfectly clear the first time I went in to sign the ok for them to do the work. It's a piss off tho.....How many times will they have to tweek it to do it right....in the mean time, I'm driving my Tercel.....not quite the same road respect .....hahahah

well, I've argued with the dealership, the body shop and the insurance company....no change they cover each other's asses and won't do anything about it....Guess I'm gonna be out 1500$ for tires just to prove them wrong...


I did find ...googling and on this forum, that the Wrangler HPs that came with my truck are crap....but it's a tough pill to swallow seing as the vibrations weren't there before...

Anyone have ideas or suggestions.....What tires are you guys running on a stock truck. What about if I level it.
