Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

Usually dealers would not have pics of the under carriage anyways even if they did have some from before, hopefully they have some of the bumper, I don't know to me that looks like it might have gotten bent when loading on that truck but then again the rust proves otherwise

Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

Since it seems that the damage to the bumper and mirror is caused by the driver i am sure you will get that repaired but they prolly wont do shiat for the wheels. They will say its normal wear and tear or some BS. I tried that once before on a used vehicle cause 2 wheels were brand new and the pass side 2 wheels were peeling worse then a mexican sunburn. I got told to pound sand.

Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

Get it in to a photo program and lighten up the front bumper and i bet it will pop out like a sore thumb.

No idea on the tire...but that was probably done by a curb

Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

Set of toyo proxes ST2's in the 275/315 size: 1100 installed
New Bumper: 1000
Paint: 500
Painting of mirror: 250

IMO about 2850-3000 worth of repairs. Then again I'm going with NYC labor for painting prices so I may be a little off. lol

Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

Well I now have three estimates. It seems they all called and matched their prices.

Replacing the bumper and repainting the mirror will be$1,550 to $1,625.

Repairing the bumper and repainting the mirror will be $675 to $750.

I had one repair shop tell me that I should not replace the bumper. He said that the factory paints the bumper just after it is freshly formed and the paint bonds better at the factory. If I repaint the bumper, the paint will flake off in any future impacts or with bugs.

I have never heard of this before. Its he full of it?

The price in a new tire is $530.

I will send this over in the morning and keep everyone updated with how the dealership replies.

Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

Geez dude that blows...hopefully it'll all get fixed. I've had both my front and rear bumper "reconditioned" after I was rearended. Some place here heats em up and takes all the paint off and removes all the dents, and they come out like new. If it's actually torn they should replace the bumper. In the interim while you're waiting you could straighten those front braces real easy, which may make the front look better. And like someone said heat that dent with maybe a blow drier and it may come out a bit.

Other than all this horse$hit congrats on your beast...it does look good otherwise.

Good luck!
