Man, im sorry to hear that, but all that matters is that you are alright! You could always consider finding a donor cab/bed/front end to put on it if you can find one cheap.

buy a new truck, keep that one as your beater! Now you don't have to worry about body damage while rock crawling!

Glad to hear your OK boss. Could've been much worse. Thats the issue with lifting your truck though, your center of gravity is higher now, making it that much easier to roll.

You could take the approach my buddy Cassidy did with his old Yota.

He flopped it a couple years ago on Spring Creek (one of our local trails) went to the JY, replaced the broken glass, and drove it till he totalled it last summer being stupid... road turned, he didn't, hit a guardrail at 35

ah S#!+ man. That is sad to see. Atleast you are safe and sound. Is the truck a loss or repairable?

You should get another Ranger for cheap and build it with your existing parts from this one if the insurance company lets you buy it back.

Man that Blows monkey chunks..

Glad you and your passenger only came out with only scratches!

sounds like it could make a good donor truck for a new used same model.. or part it out..
