glad to hear you are ok though, even more glad to hear that it wasn't something dumb that you did... i would agree with the other people that you should strip your mods off, they are not going to be included in your claim, i wouldn't think...

is your father in-law ok aswell?
I got Geico to cover most of the mods amazingly so I can't go strip them off now... Plus the truck is in a tow yard about 250 miles from my house ; ) Yeah- father-in-law was ok, we just had some cuts and bruises. My wedding ring flew off my finger and out the drivers side window that was rolled down about an inch and 1/2 . Found it in the dirt the next morning- whew

I swung super wide to avoid him and never could get the rear-end of my truck under control and ended up sliding sideways off the road only to have the wheels get caught in a little dip and over the truck went. The caddy took out some bushes (and a tire) but kept going. Apache County Sheriff came across the car a few miles down the road with a completely bare wheel and about 50 beer cans on the floor and no driver. So thank you for your concern and assumptions that I am a dumbass. Hopefully none of you have to hear metal crunching around you cause some idiot decided to drink and drive. Maybe you won't come to a stop with the dirt six inches from your face and your passenger still hanging from their seat above you. Grow up liitle boys.

To the other questions: Yes- the truck felt very solid in the roll over- No, I wasn't offroading, just driving. Claim paid the truck off and then left me with a few grand and yes I will enjoy my G35 SEDAN as much as my wife enjoys her FX35.
was that so hard? Had you said that from the beginning you wouldn't be all butt hurt.

Glad to see you're ok. If they catch that clown hopefully he'll be spending some time in tent city. Maybe you'll see him or visit him, lol.

My girlfriends mom has a G35. They're pretty sweet. Congrats on the kids and have fun with the new/future car!

People here made ASSumptions because we're used to see idiots from Cali or other places rolling their **** in an open field while they're being stupid, total and complete retards. Sorry we assumed...I mean, you didn't explain anything in the beginning til just now.

Glad you and your father are okay. Sad to see the truck go. But it's life. Material items are replaceable, lives are not. It was one of my favorites...one of the couple that really got me to like Toreador Red.

sorry to sound all sentimental, or religious, or what ever you want to call it, because trust me, that is not me! but being able to find it the next day, i would take as a sign that the 2 of you are going to be together forever... as it's amazing it was lost in the first place, and finding it would have been nearly impossible, the 2 events happening back to back, the odds are unsurmountable...

The point: it's happened everywhere no matter the region or state. Just sayin. lol.

Just trying to point out if we got the story right off the bat, there wouldn't have been assumptions and the OP wouldn't have gotten butthurt by them...all we got were pics and well....we don't know the area. All we see is a wooded area and no road next to it. A post like this, OF COURSE people are gonna ask what happened! lol.

i'm blahlblahblahing...i'll shut up now. haha.

I spend alot of time in the bay area for work and everyone talks about Humbolt being interesting and they also talk about cars with Oregon plates mysteriously being busted for traffiking while CA plate cars arent. hmmm

NorCal is pretty sweet. I cant say i would trade SoCal for it though Whats up with people saying 'hella' all the time?

CenCal? umm... well... dont worry, things will get better one day

doesnt suprise me most of the weed in oregon is from humboldt ... seems like most of the stuff further south like the bay area is more indoor and locally grown in peoples yards and such

and well stop saying hella when you guys stop saying "the 5" when refering to the highway

Ok. fair enough if you stop referring to it as a 'highway'. Freeway! Imperial and PCH are highways!

You 707 guys sure are touchy. You sure you arent from Valet-Joe?
