I work for an insurance company and used to handle auto claims. If you have any questions about any of the process feel free to let me know.

Actually silver is one of the worse colors to have IMO. It blends right in with the daylight, especially when it's really sunny. My last car was gray and I've had TWO COPS CAR almost get in collisions with me which I blame on the color of the vehicle.

I wonder if it's the color. In the 6 weeks I've had it, I have had 3 close calls with idiot drivers & obviously 1 head on. Maybe I should have bought Rescue Green or Canyon Brown. I don't think these fools see black?
Hey.. No busting on my Rescue Green.. Lol. Jk. Mine is hard to miss.
Also, my wife's car is silver too and she's had alot of close calls and a couple people have hit her and said "I didn't even see you".

Hope they fix it and take the bus company's insurance for all its worth. Also, if there's any problems, don't be afraid to lawyer up..

No Rescue Green hater here...I have an 07 JKU in that color! I thought it'd be silly to get the KK in it too however. But everyone notices Rescue Green!

Installed my bwoody sway links this morning:

new:





Still need to buy my 2.5" lift, skink sliders, and do a tranmission fluid change with a new PML 42RLE pan and lubelocker gasket.

The ride seems smoother but that's probably just a placebo effect of me thinking I have something new bolted on.

What I can 'quantify' is the suspension corners better and doesn't rock side to side anymore.

When turning into my neighborhood over a few drainage runs the jeep used to rock side to side noticably where it would throw you around in the seat, now it only rocks once or twice very tighly and then stops.

Cornering is much better as well, I ripped the jeep around my local roundabout at about 45mph and the body roll was greatly reduced from what I remember, not at any time did I feel uncomfortable making the tight circle on the roundabout at that speed where as before you could feel the body leaning to one side and acting too 'cushy'.

YMMV though...
