    Had mine done last month after waiting 6 months. Dealer did all in stock vehicles first, & customers last. I was told that by the service advisor. I'd read some horror stories of the mechanics not getting the sensors back in right so I requested a master tech. Advisor said no problem, & they already had lots of experience from replacing the in stock. So much for customer first...

    From what I understand, this is common practice. But look on the bright side, they got some experience with the 'in stock' units instead of yours! I waited on purpose and my dealer did a good job on mine.

    Yep, when you've got a GM breathing down your neck because they can't sell one of the many Tundras you keep on the lot until the recall is done, you just smile and nod when service brings you the ticket.

    And on this recall, I was told there were two kits depending upon which bumper you have. My dealer just happened to have the kit for mine in stock -unfortunately, the truck they ordered my kit for originally was wrecked so it will be fixed as part of the repair.

    This "problem" is the reason I finally found the exact configuration I wanted in Inferno. Through internet searches I found three (3!!!) in the entire USA. Then poked around the back lots of every dealership in driving distance and saw one parked 6 deep under a bunch of dust. But brand new. That sales guy couldn't be bothered to check out why it wasn't out for sale. So I went to the dealer I most wanted to buy from (best rated service), told them what I wanted and where I'd seen in, and they made it happen. But mentioned the reason that truck was sitting in the back lot was some recall related to the back bumper. Lol: my dealer is high volume, got the other to trade (and fix the bumper the same day, to do so), and gave me a most excellent deal. Turns out, that other dealer fixed their stock *except* this rare Inferno double cab they didn't covet to sell quickly. Score.
