Re: SRT down!! :(

Hey guys. Haven't been on the forum in a quite a while. She was repaired. Total rebuild was $42,000. Yikes. It wasn't totaled because the cost kept trickling up from the original estimate...which was barely 18k. The ins appraiser wasn't familiar with SRT.. By the time it approached the "totaling threshold" cost, they were already fairly committed to fixing it. They body shop was AMAZING. They were recommended to me from a buddy I fly with. If you're around Atlanta...Wren's Body Shop, Douglasville. You won't be disappointed.

You can't tell anything happened to her. Drives hard and fast still. Totally straight. No issues. Repairs are warrantied for life.

Re: SRT down!! :(

first, glad all is good. both with the family and the jeep.

now go back to your insurance company with a 'diminished value' claim.

the fact that there will be a 42K repair on your carfax will change the resale value of that vehicle vs. one with a clean history.

all you need is a licensed appraiser to write it up.

Re: SRT down!! :(

Thank you. All humans involved were fine. Bumps, bruises, airbag burns. Not too bad.

We got about $8K for dim value. I was expecting around 15-20,000. LOL.

BUT....checked carfax s couple weeks ago, there was NO reports of anything close to an accident. Just service records and the sale when we bought it. Repairs were completed in November 2014. I would think carfax would have data by now.

Mannnnnnn that sucks!

Glad everyone involved was ok!

Sucks that your Jeep took that nasty hit. I wouldnt feel right driving a Jeep that had that much damage. Damn insurance adjuster should have totaled it.
