Default She's back! I have my girl!

Thanks everyone who was in contact with me about my truck being in the shop and getting updates from me often.
This is the story: It started with my tech hearing a squealing or squeaking coming from my driveshaft when I had brought my truck in for service to my steering wheel. The horizontal piece in the center of my steering wheel had gone completely vertical while I was going straight. By the time all was said and done, I had received a new rear driveshaft, trackbar, and had the tires rotated and still had problems. Next was found that some type of steering lines were damaged during the lift process by 4WHEELPARTS.COM out of Jacksonville, FL. So all in all, they tightened and replaced some suspension and steering components. And my service is so good that while the tech and advisor were driving it, they felt that the A/C wasn't blowing cold enough, so they looked into that and I was low on freon, and refilled it. I went a week and a half without my truck. I thought I would enjoy having a fuel efficient loaner and while I am greatful to have had a car at all, IT WAS AN AVENGER AND NOT MY RAM. It made me miss my truck dearly.
I go to pick up my truck (yesterday), take my tech to lunch, (I take care of him and his belly and he takes care of my baby and our Challenger), as my my dealership could've said, "oh well, take your truck to the company that did your lift", THEY DIDN'T. Covered it ALL under warranty, but the tire rotation. Ok, so I had to pay $22.11 for tire rotation, hurt me. My advisors lunch date is next week. For the record, I use Hilton Head CJD in the New River Auto Mall in SC. They are awesome! Zach Black is my advisor and Michael Dunkle is my tech. Awesome people.

I thought I would document my experience with pics. One side note, my tech got back at me (it was an accident actually) by messing with my phone and sending a wild pic of me in my swimsuit with an attatched note to "Mamasita" (a very much beloved member here)....so about an hour later I got a text from "Mamasita" stating that she was laughing and she was going to share that pick with my "Big daddy", who happens to be "Pardad", my adopted dad, her husband. The caption "Hey BIG guy, last night was great, can't wait to SEE you again" or something to that effect. Meanwhile I am trying to figure out what she is talking about. I looked in my outbox and realized what had happened. My tech needed my phone for a minute and foolishly I TRUSTED HIM! Even today, Mamasita was in tears from the laughter and not being able to breath. The message in all of this.....don't trust your beloved, awesome wonderful Dodge techs with your cell phone, no matter how close of a family friend they might be! Pics to follow. Thanks everyone, I am a very happy girl to have my truck back!

I see her at the dealership, my tech loves to park her anyway he sees fit!

So what's the first thing (after lunch) I do with her?:

I attempted a couple of FUN obstacles, just to get her back to normal with me:

Well, I am so glad to see that this all worked out. You have a great dealership and service department to work with!

And LOL @ Mr. Dunkle for a great practical joke!!! He deserves more than just lunch...he deserves a pat on the back from all of us here on the Ram ForumZ!!!
