I got the Jeep back today from the body shop. Insurance covered replacement of the entire steering column.
So, in the past 3 weeks, I've taken the Jeep to get inspected, Stereo was stolen and steering column damaged while there. Paid $1300 for a new exhaust system and all new rear brakes.
Got a new stereo installed (thanks State Farm)
and got a new steering column.
My only complaint, is that the steering seems a bit "stiffer" than it was previously...I was used to it being a bit loose, but now it's kinda jerky, and responds REALLY well, almost too well. Is it supposed to be like this? Is it now "fixed" compared to what I was dealing with earlier?
thanks...been a long week, lets hope that nothing else happens. in the past month, I've had to go a week total without the Jeep. My rental while at the body shop was a Mazda2...tiny little roller skate!
