When it rains it pours...and trees fall from the sky

Huge storm rolled through last night. Heard a lound crash and this what I found in the am.




Appraiser says just replace hood, front panel, cracked radiator hose, and cracked plastic turbo cover.


****ing sucks. Both vehicles were towed away on a flat bed. Should I be requesting a thorough inspection by a ford mechanic? Lastnthing I want is to them to replace the obviously damaged parts and turn it over only to really **** everything up.

I would INSIST that a Ford dealer does the work and uses all genuine Ford parts.

It's at a shop about a mile from a Ford dealer. I'm gonna let them take the first look and the arrange another opinion from Ford.

This is going to be a high mileage truck over the next 2 years (60k plus). I can't have continual engine issues especially as I move around (.mil).

No way in hell would I let a 3rd party shop touch my truck in a case like this. If you were just talking body panels or paint, sure. As soon as you start talking repair work to a $13,000+ motor, it is Ford and only Ford.

Insurance companies can't tell you who to use.

Like said above, I wouldn't let anybody touch it but ford. Think about it this way: a ford tech sees these trucks on a daily basis. He would know if yours came in and the radiator looked bent and he'd say "hey this radiator on this truck doesn't look like the other 5 trucks I serviced this week" where as a 3rd party shop would say "looks fine, that's the way it's supposed to be, let's crank it up!"

Take it to ford.

Your appraiser is going to take them both to Jeff Spicoli.
