What everyone else said. Don't even talk to the other guys insurance, they are going to look for any angle they can to cut corners and responsibility. Let your insurance do all the stressful work.

Re: Someone Wanted To Kiss My Jeep

Ouch. that sucks. As for OEM parts, well it all depends what insurance you got. Yes it is your right to choose OEM parts but depending on your insurance and their fine print they may legally use aftermarket parts. I learned that lesson a few months back after a broken window. My carrier has it in their fine print. Bastards! But regardless you can get the OEM parts just expect for them to ask you to pay the difference between OEM and Aftermarket. Luckily for me, the body shop i went to they did put aftermarket window (did not have the mopar logo) so i raised hell after i noticed they scratched the chrome trim and fixed that and through in the mopar window.

Re: Someone Wanted To Kiss My Jeep

Welcome to the club! Mine was 1 day before yours. In my case we both have the same insurance company so I filed against the other insured's policy. The asshat is not responding to the insurance company's calls despite me providing the police report and all so I'm going to wait out the 30 days for him to default. Unfortunately he got your liftgate too...have you checked underneath for damages yet?

Got hit from behind...need help with identifying parts

Damn apparently that reflector on the bumper is always the first thing that goes.

Stick with the black lower trim, you'll be less annoyed and it's easier to clean when it gets all scuffed up.

Re: Someone Wanted To Kiss My Jeep

So their insurance adjuster was able to contact their client and confirm the accident. Their insurance is taking 100% responsibility. I emailed them the quote I received and a bunch of pictures.

It was more than enough, they felt the estimate was accurate or close, but they wanted to contact the body shop. They negotiated and dropped the amount to just under $5000. The body shop told me, insurance "found" a couple of reconditioned parts and wanted to use an aftermarket reflector and 1 section of the light. The body shop said they will contact their parts dealer and see if they will match the insurances prices.

It appears the dealer matched it. So I should be getting all OEM parts. Not too sure about the "reconditioned" parts, but as long as they look as good as new, I'm fine with that.

Farmers has really made it easy on my end so far. They've sent the body shop the check and I can't drop my vehicle off until July 6 because they are booked until then. That's usually a good sign right?

Maybe

I'd bet they are taking a break for the 4th though

Re: Someone Wanted To Kiss My Jeep

Good news. I got my JGC back today. BAd news, I'll be dropping it back off at the shop on the 10th for additional work. I went over their working and not happy with it.

First thing is, I told them to NOT wash my vehicle. Well, when I showed up, it was getting out of "detailing". FFFUUUU



2nd, lack of communication. They never called me once to tell me my vehicle was taking longer or when ETAs were changed. They are suppose to call 24-48 hours when it's suppose to by ready for pickup. I've always had to initiate the 2 calls.

Anyways, so they drop off my vehicle up front and I'm going over it. First thing I notice is the light swirl marks in the sun.... **** me.

2nd, I still see compound or wax or whatever it is that's still on the car. So after their "detail", all this residue made it look like damage or scratched on the car. Fortunately, I had a microfiber rag on hand. Used a little bit of water and rag to make sure they were scratches. Cleans up well.

3, I see a cloudy area along the fender edge.

4, there was a dimple at a random spot long the rear quarter.

5, I'm missing the 2 screws holding the bumper that's hidden by the liftgate.

6, my wheel fender's edge looks all chewed up. I think this was either damaged during the accident and got missed. Or it got damaged during reinstall of bumper.

7, my taillight has a chip it in. It was indicated during initial inspection for a replacement, but looks like they forgot it.

8, my most left backup sensor seems to be out of it's location and looks funny.


I will need to wash it and see how bad the damage is this weekend. Fortunately, the front 1/3 of my vehicle is protected with XPEL, so I know that area will be good.


Other than that, the paint looks really good and near perfect match. They are going to replace the rear bolts holding the bumper.

What I need from you guys is, is it color matched to your vehicle or just a standard black bolt?

Also, does your latch on your liftgate look like this with 3 screws? Looks funny to me.

The bumper screw is black. Liftgate latch has 3 screws.
