Im getting my truck back today, anything i should check?

yep, after 2 1/2 weeks at the shop, im getting it back today. was supposed to be yesterday but they couldnt get the camber set right, and the lady at the shop told the allignment shop to make it perfect.

So, when i pick it up, what should I look for?

I had front end damage, and had a dent under the right tail light fixed, and a scratch near the passenger side door.

what do should I look for?

I know i need to test the 4wd... and pull the drivers side wheel and paint everything, but other than that, any tips?

also, why do you need to paint everything new parts have paint on them.....i doubt they install bare metal parts.....

also drive it to make sure the allignment is correct...

FYI: it will NEVER be the same as it was since it was in a wreck.....wreck fixes are never the same afterwards...

So true... Some places do a really good job at getting it close, but like Maurice said, it will NEVER be exactly like it was...good luck.
