Did the same last spring (after multiple hi-lift fixes followed by new "mistakes") plus some add'l work as long as we were in the neighborhood. Work on time and less than the quote. Good people there, nice to visit the mother ship.

Made the drive to Fresno to have the penthouse bows replaced. Great experience, extremely friendly group had in depth tour of the facility. Ready to hit the road.

So SMB did have to remove the cabinets to access the rear drivers side bolt? I have the same issue on my 2010 SMB, and am not looking forward to trying to take out the cabinets. Did you see them at work when you were in Fresno? Once you saw them working on it did it seem like something we mere mere mortals could do, or were there special tools involved in taking out the cabinets? Thanks.
