Quality Control problem

So I picked up the new plow truck from the boss to grease it and change 1 thing on it. Once I got under the truck I noticed a lot of issues from the body company that installed everything. I have a list of 22 things. Tell me if I'm being to picky or if this is justifiable. He still owes 3000 for the work and he is considering holding the money until the issues are fixed. He dropped it off to them with maybe 1600 miles on it now it has 2600 miles on it.


2007 GMC 4500 VIN #: 2646 miles

Bed rear hinge pins won’t take grease
Upper hoist cylinder won’t take grease
Bed lift support bracket is too tight
Drivers bed side pins are hard to get back into holes
Rear tailgate latches no cotter pins in the pin



Right rear corner light keeps coming unplugged and is now corroded

Wiring above fuel tank not heat shrank and bare wire out the end of connector


Hydraulic tank mount bolt half of washer is on cross-member and other half has large air gap


Hoist mounting bolts
1. Both front bolts loose I could spin them by hand
2. No lock nuts regular nuts with a lock washer


3. Bolts only a grade 5

4. Wrong size bolts


Hoses rubbing on various metal edges along frame rails



PTO leaks

PTO pump leaks



Hydraulic tank leaks





PTO switch no heat shrink connectors or protection

Plow lines rubbing on cross-member edges up front

Large hydraulic line rubbing on a brake line

Wire under hood just cut off nothing covering the end


Missing front plow frame bolt

PTO lube lines rubbing on transmission edges

Sounds like when winter is over he wants me to take it down to them and sit over their shoulder and wait until they fix everything.

For the amount of money that guys drop on equipment nowadays, the work should be completed as close to perfect as can be. There is no excuse for work like that.

I'd make them aware of the issues so that they can't come back with the "it wasn't that way when you drove it out. Some of the issues are just a PIA, but some are a liability.I'd make them fix it right before i pay. There is never an excuse for shoddy work, but especially in this economic climate.

You are not pickey, if you buy something brand new, well you expect it to be just that, new and without flaws... It is one thing 5 years old and 200k, but yes, definately have them fix it!

No excuse for that. Some of these are serious safety issues. Good eye for catching all of that.
