glad to hear that you are going to be repairing it, I was worried we were gonna lose one of the best trucks on the site. Hope everything goes as easily and smoothly as it can!

Find a fleetside and you have your flareside! . I don't think ur frame will be all that bad really and the boxing and reinforcement will definately help out. Wish i lived closer too. I'd defiantely be out there giving you a had with everything.

Bummer..

I do have to comment on the Monday morning quarterbacking going down here!

You shoulda..
Why didn't you..
What were you thinking when you..

No one here is anything close to an authority on off-roading or pickup-truck (dis)repair. If you are thinking "those dumbasses, this would never happen to me and my friends/crew, we're smarter than that!" then you deserve a smack in the back-side by ol' mr ****-happens..
