The insurance company of course totaled it so I had to get a new vehicle. Sadly enough it is not a ranger but I'm very happy with it.

Its a 2005 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon edition with the 6 speed manual transmision and all the other parts that set it apart from a regular wrangler. The best part is it only has 27000 miles on it.

I was in the turning lane and a tahoe and I clipped each other. No one was hurt but both vehicles were totaled.

Dude man that sux. Never like seeing your truck get totaled. Do you still have the truck in your possession? If so, willing to part with those tow hooks?

A lot of people have been asking this but unfortunately i had to put the factory alcoas back on the truck to keep my aftermarket wheels and tires but i did get a few aftermarket parts off that i will be selling whenever i get around to it.
