Hello

Hello everyone I have been a member here for 8 months or so, but this is my first post. I wrecked my Ranger in 09 and decided after I repaired it I was going to do a BL and came across this site. I am cheap, so I made my own BL out of 3x3 3/16 square tubing. I am looking for some 33s for it now. Found a few sets on CL but haven't acted quick enough. Here is a pic of the dodge I hit, and my ranger after the wreck.

Stupidity......There was a car that had ran out of gas about half way up a hill, I thought I could pass them before someone came over the hill. In my defense though, the woman driving the dodge was going 20 over the speed limit.

Looks like an improvement to the Dodge.

Hope everyone was OK, though.

Amazing how stiff is the front of this rangers, the Dodge front end shows more severe damage than yours, of course the Bull bar should help anyway.

DODGE vs. RAM.... I think the picture talks by itself !

I think the guard took the majority of the damage. I was able to drive it home, they had a wrecker take theirs home. Insurance totaled it out, so I bought it back for 600. Bent the brush guard back in shape with a sledge hammer and welded a new bar on bottom on it. Replaced headlights and corners, fiberglassed cracks in grill and header panel. Adjusted the fender gap, I had a small crack in the radiator, so changed it. New windshield from where the airbag popped my hand up. Built a new bumper. Repair cost with the buy back was just over 1k. Here is another picture of the dodge.
