Thought About doing the Accident Mod

So I went on a road trip to a water park...We left early because the weather was getting bad. On the way back to town it had slacked up and left the roads real slick(plus my tread sucks), As we reached our exit I turned off, and well the truck didn't exactly turn so I turned harder and the truck decided it wanted to turn. So as i slid toward a sign I swerved the other way and tapped to break on accident and threw my truck into a 360 which sent me up and over the banked turn and into a field.

Thank god no one was hurt.

15 plus years ago I did a 720 on the ice in a Tempo and didn't hit anything. What a wild ride.

Glad you and the truck are ok.

May want to look at the tires, make sure they didnt get cut on the sidewalls wile sliding off the road.

I did something similar but only did a 180 and was on a country road, I ended up in a freshly plowed field which I got stuck in.

Take it to a suspension/brake place have them check all your components of steering suspension and brakes . And check your tires as mentiond above just for safety sake I doubt you hurt anything but you never know .

Oops! I bet you have to replace the seat too L.O.L. It was a wild ride to say the least. I did that on a racetrack once and I still get a little shaky when I go there to watch the races. My brakes just locked up out of the blue and the power steering rack just snapped like a dried out twig. good thing a had 2 pairs of shorts, a bottle of liquor, goody's head ache powder (nasty but they work) and 6 packs of smokes which I smoked like a kid eats halloween candy. I rolled that car 4 times. I bet you're pretty shaken up though.
