Default Re: Thank God for Insurance

I can't see everything from the pics but honestly, if it's not "racked" ("sprung") and it's like and hour two or so to fix a dent or two, I'd do that. If it really does need a new tailgate and as picky as I can be sometimes, and if your policy has that used/aftermarket verbage in it (mine does, and I can't pay extra for insurance that replaces OEM Ford parts with the same, fuggers ) I'd go with a JY tailgate but try to determine it's past.

What I find annoying about body shops, insurance companies, oh so many auto parts and a whole lot of other things these days is how they bait you and are quite happy to telly you that "it has a lifetime warranty". Problem with that is, replacing parts every few years, fighting with the body shop about an issue a few years later, etc etc, it's all time. How about doing a good job and a lifetime warranty rather than the playing odds game?
