My Ranger is dead...

I am sad to say,...(sniffle, sniffle). That my Ranger has been put to rest today. Unfortanatly my poor Ranger was struck when somebody decided to run a red light, and totaled my baby. I only had her a couple months. And they will be cherished.
I am now on a new chapter of my life, looking for my next Ranger to fill the void.


-Sadly depressed

Girlfriend and I were taken to hospital for injuries, bang'd up pretty good. Nothing life threatening. It's totalled, got towed to a service center. And I have picks, but I'm at work right now.

Can't wait to get another one tho, I think I'm hooked on the FX4's. Kinda excited searching for a new one. I'm finding better deals now compared to 5 months ago. Economy going down!

i have an 07 FX4 and some one did the same thing to me. the truck was right on the total loss line but they desided to fix it up. the repare cost was $12,700. its back in runing order but its just not the same truck. dont get me wrong, they did a great job but it just does not feel the same.

Yea, I was kinda hoping it would be totalled for that reason. But on the other hand I'm afraid of getting screwed by the insurance company's.
And thanks Trigger.
At work now, I was at the shop where it got towed to today and took some better pics, I should post em soon. It's not pretty tho!

Yea, I didn't do a thing wrong. Some [email protected]#! ran a red light going 50 mph and broad sided me.
It's hard finding FX4's!
p.s. What is the TREMOR package?

It is a limited edition Ranger that comes stock with a better sound unit than most Rangers and a few other upgrades. Someone I work with has one and they are really nice.
