Because somebody "rolled" once, they have to go get a car? Come on, Mark. It was a freakin' accident. They DO happen. It's not like he did it on purpose.

Looks like the top of the cab is alright. I'm not 100%, but I am pretty sure the cabs are one piece.

i really dont want to lose this truck. its my first car and i wanted to keep it for years to come, even if i bought another truck.

By the fact that you intentionaly not saying how this happened, you leave us no choice nut to assume it was something extremely stupid. Continuing to ignore it will only make you look worse so you might as well spill it.

I could make some guesses, but I think the real story coming from you would be better than an assumption / guess coming from me. What would you prefer?

I was following my friend in his jeep and he was doing donuts so I was somewhat following him doing the same thing, when my tire must have caught on something and lifted up. I cut the wheel to the right and was up on 2 wheels for nearly 4-5 seconds, attempting to throw my end back down. Unfortunately, I didn't react quick enough. Luckily, we didn't roll upside down.

We tried pushing it over, with about 7 of us, and I realized that it might rebound and roll upside down, making the damage worse and making it harder to flip it over. I called my good friend and he brought my towstrap to me and used his chevy to pull all of my wheels back to earth.

I waited nearly an hour before trying to start it, thinking that was long enough to let all the fluids settle. Started up perfect, but was shooting out smoke for about 5 minutes before running clear. Drove her home to the garage where she chills for now.

I realized after we rolled it, my mielage was exactly 66,000. Noone got hurt, which is really what matters to me.

Fire Ranger has a good point. For 2 pages people have been asking and you do nothing but ignore the comments, either trying to delay telling or trying to build interest. And the truck being in a field of grass tells us nothing since we werent there.

Damn dude! Sorry to hear that! I'd be willing to buy your flares though if they're still in good shape and you decide to go with glass.

Glad to know everyone was ok though..

We all have made foolish mistakes at some point or another... Some may not yet, but will... And you learn quick lol... Unfortunately it's the hard way... But that can sometimes be the best way for some of us.
