    Hi All,
    I was run off the road by a truck at the end of April. Lot's of cosmetic damage but the nose of my 2006 SRT-10 Convertible needs to be replaced. The bodyshop has just told me that they cannot get a new nose from the local dealer as the "factory is closed"
    The Insurance Company is currently insisting on the parts being "OEM and new".
    I am in San Jose, California, any ideas where my bodyshop can locate a new+OEM nose?
    Regards
    Tony Bates

    Contact Jon at Parts Rack. He had a few a little while ago.

    Called Jon B and yes he has one. Passed his details to my bodyshop and insurance company, they only seem to want to source one from an authorized dealer but hopefully they can get their act together and get it from Jon.
    Thanks all
    Regards

    It appears the insurance company is getting "pissey" regarding PartsRack being an "aftermarket" company and not an official Dodge dealer.
    Can any dealer out their reading this conatct me if you have a front bumper/nose for a 2006 SRT10 vert.?
    Thanks

    Maybe JonB will sell it to Chuck Tator at about 50% off, and Chuck can sell it to your insurance company at full price. This is no joke, and is just what your insurance company deserves. Good luck!

    This is EXACTLY what we can do.... if they need "Dealer Invoice" PartsRack drop-ships for dealers frequently...... In fact, we can still give the dealer their profit on the deal, or INCREASE the body-shop profit, or LOWER your deductible. I also believe "Owner-Supplied" parts are OK as well, and YOU save the $$.

    I could name 6+ insurance companies that buy our parts on a regular basis

    Hi Guys,
    The insurance company accepted that PartsRack are "good guys" and Jon is shipping me a nose today and will be with the body shop next week hopefully.
    As always, great service from Jon.
    Thanks all
    Tony
