I got the call this morning: my frame is needing a replacement. There is a 5 inch whole in one side, and a patched 7 inch whole on the other. The dealership is willing to do the frame swap ($10k) but they are waiting to hear back from corporate before they order or do anything. They are wondering why the dealership that had the truck before them didn't do it.
At first I was pretty upset, thinking about horror stories and whatnot. ruined my whole day. Now after a little more digging, i'm wondering to myself, did I hit the jackpot? A whole bunch of new parts for free (hopefully), and from what I hear around the forum, installation of any replacement parts at the dealership with no labor cost!
I'm thinking of replacing the muffler (free replacements for the rest of the vehicles life? yes please), fuel filter, shocks, and water pump (I don't think it was replaced when the timing belt was done).
Is there any other work you guys would recommend I get done? It's 2001 double cab 4x4, just rolled over 150k miles.
