Someone sideswipped my truck sometime in the last 3 days. I just noticed it as it is on passenger side of truck.

FML.

Bummer! Sorry to see. Looks very fixable though, and nobody was hurt, which is all that really counts.

insurance for sure...its too much to go out of pocket.

the estimates have varied between 1400 and 1700. USAA appraised it at 2100 for parts and labor today. Funny story as the appraiser had never seen a one. he asked what it looked like i replied "you will know it when you see it" he called me when he was in the work parking lot and just said... "this is NICEEEEE......"

USAA kicks ass...the premium is a bit high but i have never been disappointed.

sorry about your truck. like blackjack said...this thread is worthless without pics

Can't take pics. Truck is at dealer having $2000+ worth of engine work done. Yep. Seems there is a recall on some pins...

Will get pictures of damage when I get it back. Probably won't go insurance, but not sure at the moment.

Id love to take you up on it but GINA would know.

I guess the shop had to go back to the insurance company for more time so they could remove the shadowline trim and paint all the way from the hood back above the drivers door.

a while...i think three weeks or so.

the total bill has grown quite a over 3grand. im really excited to be reunited with GINA.

Cant wait to see the 2 grand worth of paintjob.

I took the day off from work today for an appointment but hopefully will be picking her up this afternoon. She was all painted and going back together today but as of last night they were missing the diffuser. That is supposed to arrive today...

I am going to let her warm up and then unleash the fury.

I'm sorry to hear this.
This sounds scarily familiar. Oh dear.
