Once you said you were in a grass field, it was pretty obvious. But think about it. Until you said you were in grass, most people would logically assume you were on the road. Flipping a truck over on the road and then hiding the reason why would usually indicate something pretty bad. Like DUI or some serious reckless driving which would be bad. And that is what I was assuming until you said what actually happening. That's why I suggested you just say it. If it wasn't something like reckless drunken endangerment, you don't want people assuming thats what it was.

i dont think any was, i just changed my oil but im going to change it now that this happened, thinking maybe some gas could have got in there. if its totaled, i dont know how much insurance would give me, and if it would be enough to get me another truck like it or maybe a 4wd. i really dont want to get rid of mine but i have so much work to do.

yall think some fiberwerx fenders with a 3" bulge and some fiberglass bedsides would look good? that or find random parts at junkyards and not care what color, and when I am done getting the body in real nice shape just get it repainted

That would probably be the cheapest route. How bad is the cab beat up? You could always spray bomb it black if multi colors really bothered ya.

why dont you fix it up with parts from other ranger, no matter the color, and save up for a sick a$$ paint scheme. like woodland camoflage lol.


and sorry to see the truck like that man. i know every single one of us went, "man, i could only imagine if that was my truck......" i hope you keep it man. all that time and effort, dont let it go to waste. put more time and effort (and $) into it! thats what i'm doing.

Sorry man. Glad you're alright though. If you got different color body parts you could just spray paint them and your truck could look like Daniels.

sorry to see this, you have the worst luck with that truck man. as soon as i saw it laying over in the grass i was 99% sure what happened.

between no sway bars and being up as fas as i am.. i've stopped doing doughnuts for the most part for this reason.

if by any chance you get a new door let me know, i'll take the old one off your hands.

That sucks, could have happened to any of us that aren't highway queens. BTW if you decide to fix it I have a complete cab corner I saved from a junk cab. Its cut off past all the seams but shipping would probably be Name:  Picture063.jpg
