    So, guy at home Depot just put 6 in of scratches in my tailgate, Right above the handle. Hard to see in the photo but it's right where the body line is. Now, do I bother talking to management or do I just suck it up?PXL_20240614_202033905.jpg

    I would be upset that it wasn’t me doing the scratching. Tuck is a truck.

    That's exactly it. My '02 I had no problem scratching up. But this truck is 6 months old and I haven't scratched it yet

    I would as it looks like it's down to metal. Turn it in on insurance (make HD pay the cost) and have it resprayed. Paint and texture probably won't match 100%, but if it's just the tailgate most won't notice.

    Do you have the Fumoto replacement valve for the drain plug?

    They do look deep. I had a guy working for me who was loading stuff into the bed, and he scratched it. I was not happy. But you learn, there are so many people out there that aren't putting your vehicle on the priority list of things to be careful of. I would just say, mention it to the manager, but don't take it too far, and don't expect any compensation. I don't know if I would even mention it, would take too much of my time.

    If you left the store, it's too late. That had to be resolved before the truck moved.

    I've got the full MotivX oil wrench and oil filter set that has the oil filter drain attachment + hose and new magnetic oil drain bolt with an assortment of new crush washers.

    Is the Fumoto valve something else?

    Not necessarily, if the employee scratched the truck in an area that is covered by CCTV, they will review footage to validate the employee did indeed scratch the truck & their general liability should cover the repair expense

    A valve that replaces the drain bolt. It has a rotating lever that lets you leave it on, open just a little so you can line up the drain pan, then open for full flow. After drained, rotate back to re-close for another <you choose thousands> miles. Or you can drain a tiny bit if you are into taking samples for analysis (https://www.fumotousa.com)

    Short nipple or long ... if you have skids it does not matter. Newer no-nipple ones drain faster than older models.

    Handy!

    I haven't had the Taco that terribly long, but have yet to change my own oil, since it was under warranty.

    I got lazy and still had the dealership change it after the warranty ran out, but now with an investment in LiquiMoly, I dont trust any mechanic to actually put it in without me watching.....
    Paranoid? lol probably, but if you want it done right and all.....

    Sure, the store most likely has cameras. What if someone was standing in front of the camera? What if it's a bad angle? There goes your roof, it's now on you. Why put yourself in that position?

    New tires today, up to 285/75R16. It’s subtle but I feel like this should have been the factory setup.
