well.. looks like its totaled

guys... tonite is a really bad night. i was driving down the road goin to a movie tonite, and some guy in a durango cut me off. im goin 45-50 mph and there was definitely no stopping. i freakin drilled him and slid down the road into oncoming traffic. everybody was alright, but when i got out and looked at the damage.. the front bumper was screwed, all the lights busted out, passenger quarter panel was destroyed, passenger door was dented in, the passenger side spindle was snapped in half and the wheel/tire was laying flat on the ground. the bed was dented in all the way, and tailight was busted out, and the tailgate wouldnt open anymore.. so that was screwed. overall.. probably totaled. but the good news is that ill get to buy a new ranger soon. keep an eye out for some trucks as long as they have a 4.0 and 4wd. thx everybody. i would post pics but i wasnt plannin on gettin in a wreck tonite so i didnt have a camera. lol

Sorry to hear that brother! Did the guy in the durango get cited/give you his insurance? It must have been his fault.

If i ever get in a wreck and they tow it somewhere its going strait to my house, because if they total it you have hell trying to get your stuff off of it...

Sucks about the wreck, who is at fault? I know he cut you off, but if you hit him in the rear they can blame you, ect...unless he admitted

3grand damage. Outside of the spindle, its all body work and bolt-ons. Frame jigs can straighten a LOT out of a vehical these days, I know from visiting them 3 times already.

They'll patch ya up and have you on the road again
