Sorry to hear about the run in with the tree. You proved that skid plates aren't just for off roading.
My 14 needed a front wheel bearing with a couple of thousand miles on it. Although I was still able to drive the Jeep, it did take a week for the dealer to get the bearing. I couldn't believe they didn't keep them in stock. Chrysler seems to have a very inefficient parts distribution system.
Once the part came in the dealer had me in and out in no time.
