  1. JL Frame Replacement Process & Pics

    More pics. Alignment tomorrow than back to body shop finally. There’s a chance I have it back this week.
  2. JL Frame Replacement Process & Pics

    I appreciate the heads up. I actually had them just install a cold air intake while they were at it, so this hopefully shouldn't be an issue.
  3. JL Frame Replacement Process & Pics

    Yep. No Problem. Got a call from the dealer yesterday and was told that when they went to install the radiator they found a broken radiator mount that they didn't see before because it was sheared off so cleanly. The replacement won't be in until Monday, so the body shop won't get it until...

    Body is on and new rear bumper installed. They’re installing radiator, air intake, new bumper, and the correct wheels and tires tomorrow morning and then it goes to the body shop for the last of the work.
  5. JL Frame Replacement Process & Pics

    Yeah, I know. I was told they need to get all of the collision work done and then start the recall process. I was kind of annoyed at that. He also said that they are waiting like 6 weeks for the new steering box when they order them.
  6. Bronco vs Jeep Wrangler mega thread

    Wife decided she wants a Bronco instead of a Tahoe, so we put a deposit on one yesterday. I’ll keep my wrangler and I think it’s going to be fun to have both.

    Engine, trans, new front axle, suspension on the new frame. Body going on this afternoon.
  8. JL Frame Replacement Process & Pics

    Thats the old frame. I didn’t take any pictures of the new frame. The engine and tranny should have been swapped over to the new frame today.
  9. JL Frame Replacement Process & Pics

    Couple new pics from today. The new frame is on the lift next to this one. Suspension all mounted up and new steering components going on. Engine and tranny swap is tomorrow. Hope to have it back Tuesday of next week.

    I appreciate the detailed response. I’ll definitely take a look at these things when I get it back. I agree that the Jeep will ultimately be fine. If there are some lingering issues I have no doubt the dealership will make things right.

    I’ll definitely be making a diminished value claim. DV claims don’t usually result in a huge payout here in Nevada, but it will be something. I haven’t picked it up yet. Looking like the end of this week. I’m anxious to get it back, but I figure it’ll be done when it’s done.

    Unfortunately I wasn’t unscathed, but hoping to get back to normal sooner than later. 35” and 2.5” is probably as big as I’ll go for daily driving. My wife already complains it’s too high. Haha

    Definitely no coats here yet. :CWL:
  14. JL Frame Replacement Process & Pics

    I think you’re probably right. I’m not anxious to dump it anyway. That said, the dealership is Jeep Only in Las Vegas and the parts and service team have been excellent. Adam is the parts manager, and has been my contact person, and has done a great job by me so far.
  15. JL Frame Replacement Process & Pics

    Hoping for a Tuesday pickup, but we’ll see. I can’t wait to get it back. Have a slipstream, tube doors, j-top, and a bunch of other crap to install. At least the timing is good for top off and doors off weather.
  16. JL Frame Replacement Process & Pics

    Even the most capable shop can miss things when you’re basically taking the vehicle apart and rebuilding it. My concern is not that this specific dealer is not up to the task (the dealership literally only deals in Jeep products), but that such a big project will almost certainly have some...

    The difference in cost between stock and even a pro rock 44 was going to be a lot.
  18. JL Frame Replacement Process & Pics

    This is definitely a big concern.
  19. JL Frame Replacement Process & Pics

    Last estimate I saw was around $17k. It’s a 2020 with 1,200 miles on it. It really wasn’t even close to a total loss.
  20. JL Frame Replacement Process & Pics

    Yes. Dealership is doing the frame replacement.
