Any numbers yet as to how much this is gonna run you? Glad to hear you're gonna go back out again. I know not many people from the meet went back out after what happened, but I had a TON of fun out on the dunes. Just didn't do anything stupid and the only thing that went bad was my tensioner pully because I got sand in the bearing. Give me a holler when you're going again and I'm sure Zack and myself will meet you up there.

Damn Zach that sucks. I'm glad you're not pissed anymore. That wont accomplish anything. Everything is a learning experience. You just got a huge lesson in one go :) Glad it wasn't worse man!

well the truck is all apart. bed is ready to come off. bumper is gone, hitch is off. and by the looks of it the bed is bent crooked. and the frame isnt much better. im not sure what to do with it now. its all bent to hell.

im about this close to bolting it all back up and driving it into a pole or something.

sorry just venting, from a couple hours work.

Your frame was bent in the front to begin with a while ago wasn't it i recall when u hit a ditch or something? Anyways any pics of the frame? It may be twisted it may not be. When my red truck was totaled the front frame horns were at a 35 degree and up and my bed sat 3 inches out side the driver side door from rolling onto it's side.
You were gettin yanked pretty hard and i think all the flex from those forces plus when the spring bent caused ur bed to twist. Could have twisted the from and may not have. Some more pice of the frame would help in seeing just how bad it's bent from a different perspective and let people give their opinions on how bad it is also.

i dont have the bed off yet but everything is loose and ready to be lifted off. since it is loose the bed teeters from corner to corner over an inch. it never used to do that.

my hopes for fixing the truck fast are deminishing. im thinking about looking into another car or something.
