Totalled truck. great fun. now what to get?

i totalled my truck yesterday, unfortunaetly. i was coming around a curve and got off of the curb a little bit. well i started pulling it back into the road when the back wheels hit gravel. as soon as it hit gravel the truck came across the road, flipped twice, hit a tree, then landed at the bottom of a bank. great fun. pics tomorrow hopefully. now what to get? hopefully 8 grand in insurance.

ha ha. yeah it was a crazy ride. it was amazing neither me or my friend who was in the passenger seat was hurt. yeah, i hope to be getting a 4.0 ranger. depends on how much i get back from insurance. this was my 2nd ranger and i couldn't imagine have anything else different.

Definately stick with the Rangers. I wrecked one, sold it, bought a Halfstang (4 cyl Mustang), sold that, bought a Tacoma, sold that, bought a minivan, and FINALLY got it right again and bought another Ranger. All within 6 years
