So my front passenger side of my bran new jeep is all messed up

upper control arm pushed back

shock messed up

so far thats all i see..

would the dealer handle this, or would i need to take it somewhere else?

a giant fence and shrub?


honestly.. i passed out at the wheel ( for unknown reasons doctors looking into it)

but i was in my neighborhood headed home from dinner with my girl, and i passed out, ended up hitting a mail box, dodging a house, and a giant pine tree, running over a pompas plant and destroying someones fence

i guess i was really wanting to take off roading to the next level..

Aww that sucks...no warranty love on that one.

I would find a reputable welder and have them do it. Cheaper then filing insurance claim I would imagine.

Any shop should be able to weld for you.
I think you can buy new/stronger brackets.
Positive on TB's not sure CA's

And glad you are ok

I bet they could weld it on for you. That seems like a standard thing they should do

Just make sure whoever you have do it is a certified welder and you'll be OK. Steering components aren't something you want just any shade-tree mechanic doing. I think I'd take it to a few body shops and get estimates. Do you have insurance? This may be one you want to report and have done above board.

And, glad you and yours are OK. Scarey!

completely understandable.. but at the same time.. its a dog eat dog world, sometimes gotta look out for my self to,, and that means not losing my job cause i drive at my job, losing more stuff.. so either way someones going to be hurt

and for a one time passing out in my life.. i doubt i will lose anything, but i want to know why i did..

and honestly that same comment could go to people TXTING while DRIVING!!
