Any updates on totals and what bumper they are using?
They’re using the Mopar Off-road bumper from the JL Rubicon :notbad: Dillerman and Detroit confirmed that it will fit.

Total is $5,668.46.

Yessir. I’m weirdly hopeful now that it’ll finish today and I can swing by after work. Probably not, but would be cool.

I wonder if you’ll be one of those lucky few that doesn’t have to take it back to the shop once done. Fingers crossed

No Jeep :( pretty annoyed. It was supposed to be ready by 4, and they were supposed to call if anything came up. 4:00 came and went, at 5:00 I called them and left a voicemail since the recording stated they were open until 5:30. Never got a call back.

Yeah..: pretty easy to pick up a phone and tell someone that you aren’t going to deliver as promised. Or hell, have your automated system text me, like it was all week telling me that Friday was still a go...

Well nothing and nobody ever notified me that it was complete and the online system still just says “repair status: started”. I didn’t want to waste my time driving over and filling up the rental to return, just to be told that it isn’t ready. Although at least that way I would have had the satisfaction of bitching them out. But I’ll still get to do that whenever I do pick it up.

I got “upgraded” to a giant Dodge Journey when I selected a sedan.

It has some get up and go considering how large it is, but other than that the drive is pretty numb.
