Default Tailgate hinge clicking

So earlier this week my tailgate started clicking as I closed it. So I took it to the dealership and they fixed it, and dropped my tailgate.

Now one of the corners is all bent in. Good news is that it goes into the body shop tomorrow and the dealership is picking up the tab for the rental (as they should). Bad news is that I will likely not be in a ram...

You're right, good news - bad news. I hate being a loaner when RB's in the shop overnight. But its nice to have wheels for free too.

Dropped the tailgate?

I noticed some imperfections on my tailgate before we purchased it. Drove it around to the body shop. they removed the tailgate and I drove home with my new truck. Couple days later after it was fixed, I went back and had it put back on.

They can remove and fix the tailgate if you really want to drive your ram.

Just look it over real good when they put it back on to make sure the paint matches.

I think they are repainting my bumber too, they said it hit it. I don't see it but I'm not complaining.

No, but to give you an idea, the lower drivers corner of the gate is folded in about and inch and a half. Paint is chipped off too.

So day one without the ram, and it starts snowing...go figure. Glad I paid the extra $10 and upgraded to a jeep liberty from enterprise...

On a separate note: on the way to the dealership this morning some jerk cut into my lane as I was turning out of my parking lot onto the road, forcing me to turn intothe snowbank. I bent one of my side steps. Dealership is looking into fixing it for me now too, but it just seems that I have no luck with my baby. This is the second time it's been in for body work and it's only got 11k kms on it. First time my passenger let go of the door in the wind and it whipped forward and bent the hinge.

Gee...it does seem like a bit of bad luck there but maybe you are getting it all out of the way at the front end the rest of your motoring in the Ram will be trouble free!

I hope so, I hate making payments on a vehicle that I can't drive because it's in the shop. Not only that, but the public needs me, my ram, and my tow rope. Love pulling people out of the ditch, such a great feeling...
