I read on Jeepforum where a guy took his jeep into pepboys to get an oil change. Mechanic took his jeep out for a ride and ended up wrecking it behind a walmart. he was able to get the camera footage of the mech hitting a telephone pole. mechanic was doing donuts
It's not easy to get people to work on a Jeep. Most Jeep owners do much of their own work. When you spend many hours under your vehicle, it makes it hard for a mechanic to pawn off bull shite repair charges.
My transfer case went out because Big O tires left my lower control arm bolts loose after an alignment. It stressed the front of my t-case and the t-case actually broke in half. Since I was replacing it I tried to get quotes on an Atlas 2 speed 5:1 t-case and nobody in Utah would even entertain me because they couldn't mark it up. The one place that gave me a quote tried telling me I needed a new rear drive line which I absolutely knew was false because I have a new Tom Woods drive line and I made sure it was not damaged when the t-case went bad.
They then tried to overcharge me for a new front drive line and steering links even though I specifically told them I had a new Dana 44 front axle and custom Tom Woods front driveline sitting in my shop.
