Ghosts at the dealer.............

So I had my first oil change and service done this week at the dealership.

Took a TSB to get checked out as well. Without going into a huge mass of information, lets just say I may have said something to the writup person that got relayed to the 'master tech' working on my truck.

Long story short, I use my headlights as an indicater on the wall in the garage to tell me how far to pull in. Its always dark when I get home.

The same day of my service on the way home from work in the dark, and when I pulled in the garage, my headlight on the driver side seemed to be a little outa wack. (actually ALOT)

Well, I adjusted it about 10 rounds on the adjustment screw and now it is lined back up.

Had the truck for about 4 months, park in my garage every night with no issues at all, and all of a sudden I have a headlight that is many turns out of adjustment........huh....

Is it me, or do these strange things happen at Toyota dealerships often?

I'm finally getting this posted because it has taken me a while to cool down.

I once thought I saw a Skunk Ape at one of my local Chevy dealers.

I was here....I SWEAR!!!!

In all honesty though, yes the evil gremlins like to mess with our trucks when they're at the dealer. My dealer had to remove my brushguard to work on my timing belt cover. When they so-called re-installed it, they couldn't even align the existing holes back up so while i began driving home, the brushguard was laid back onto my hood and rubbing my fenders.

Needless to say, when i took it back, they ended up replacing the grill and repainting the paint rubbed fender.

I believe you that you were here, I can hear the addiction in your voice!!!

Nice truck btw, I really like your brush guard. I want to get one just like yours eventually. I think it looks good with the factory stance and wheels as well. Helps me picture what mine would look like. Glad the dealer made it right with ya.....

May do the mouse trap idea for the pack, but knowing how things go sometimes I may stick my own finger into it and get SMACKED
not up your way bow....wanted to use the dealer closer to town where I work......save me some time and gas money.....but didn't start out to well!
