Dayam! Talk about getting it in threes. You have to drive 135 miles to assess the damange (when you were supposed to be bach'in it), you have to spend $600 bucks to truck it home, and then you have to wait a week to get the replacement part. I guess in a that if the old saying is true that things come in threes is true, then you've got smooth sailing ahead for a while.
Hope it all works out for you. Are you planning to weld up the old one as a hot spare? Might be nice to know that someone on the board has temporary replacement should this happen again. How many miles on your Sube?
