    Final install of Garnish piece. Glad this is over and hope it helped others before the OEM hitch installation.

    Nope - actually happened. Some incompetent mechanics/technicians out there I'm afraid

    One of the reasons I don't let anyone touch my rig for anything more than a warranty repair. Even someone not mechanically minded stands a strong chance of doing work to factory spec over someone with no interest in your vehicle other than a paycheck..... just take a long methodical approach to the work and 99% of the time you will be fine. Confidence builds the more self-work you do.
