Was all ready to pull the trigger on lift, wheels and tires... then my truck was hit last night in work parking lot. Nobody saw it (I didnt even notice it til today in the daylight) and they took off without leaving info. Needless to say, I'll be on the lookout for a white/light colored car with front left bumper damage.
After an uninsured, suspended licensed d-bag rearended me 2 days after purchase, my insurance covered repairs. Was hit 2 more times that first month while parked. The brakes just werent right after rearended, but everything checked out. Two month mark- brakes, what brakes? Rearended a Jeep Commander when they quit. Insurance paid to repair again. $17k+.... 15 years without a claim, buy a new vehicle and I swear its got a target on it. If I place another claim, they'll likely drop me.
So, instead of lift, wheels and tires I get to replace bedside and brackets, straighten the bumper, reopen tailpipe and hope all the plastics are intact.
My question to you, Tacoma World, how difficult is it to replace a fender/bedside?
