Need to know what this part is called ASAP!!!

I got my truck worked on by a body shop and they tried to get out of replacing this part you can tell by how it was molded back on and is messed up. If someone could let me know the specific name for it so I can contact the body shop and let them know I'm aware of it. Also, it is only a picture of the part that sticks out of the bumper its a big metal frame looking part that is bent in on the underneath part to.

Thanks in advance!

I'm not 100% sure, but I think it is part of the rear suspension mounting cradle. It forms a box-like frame around the area where the spare tire is stored. It is replaced as a whole piece, you can't (AFAIK) replace just one side,

Ok, so its called the rear suspension mounting cradle? He tried to get out of replacing it even though he got a hefty sum of money from insurance. Terrible body shop will never go again but now need to get this rectified. Thanks for the help guys just reassure its the right part again.

Re: Need to know what this part is called ASAP!!!

First thing to do is see if it's on the insurance company's estimate. If not, have the shop call the adjuster to write a supplement. Very common process.

If it is on the estimate, and you paid your deductible, the insurance company may be able to help.


If the shop 'saved' you your deductible, you may have found where they saved it. You may have to fork over your deductible to get it fixed.

Looking at the parts catalog, it is listed as the "Rear Suspension Cradle": MOPAR part #52090278A? (whatever the current revision is for your year)


It's about a $500 part, and looks like it would be a fair bit of labour to replace...I can see why they just tried to bend it back into place!

Good luck with things!
