Customer: I was out of state for 10 months an when i got home, my truck didnt run the same. i need some of your advise on a few things. the motors original, every tune up or maintnance has been documented. i'm OCD with my truck clean an detailed. but bare with me for a second, ill explain my worries
JA: Are you fixing your Cab yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I was away from my home an truck for 10 months, oh i forgot, engine 150,000 miles never any prior issues. to sum it up, I've never been in a accident but when i came back from my trip i noticed the doors didnt all line up straight, the door frame from the front to back seat showed alittle black primer andthere was a ton of orange peal. i said i'm OCD, i"d wax the inside door frame when i wax my truck. so it's crazy but my truck looks like it was in a accident when i was gone, crazy. I was told the seat belts have the trucks vin # on them is that correct?
