Flopped my truck

so about a month ago i organized a little two day rafting trip with some friends and we camped out in this field. there were a few other rigs there and some back roads and creeks to play in so naturally we were messin around. well on the last day when we were all packed up and ready to leave we were playin around in this field and i was pullin cookies around one of my friends, nothing out of the ordinary for us but i neglected to take into acount the rafts, frames, coolers, food and all our camping gear that was packed pretty high in my bed resulting in a higher CG. here's the results...






the door wouldnt open so the passenger had to get in nascar style, through the broken window lol. she is all fixed now. thank god for full coverage. over 7k in damaged fixed for a mere $250. looks better than she did before the flop. i think i need to call her two face though now for the one half fresh paint and other half scratched wheelin scars lol.
we had an econoline van there but it couldnt pull me over. i had to call my buddy with a jeep to come back and he was able to flip it rubber side down with no problem.

Andy, who's your Insurance co? i asked my state farm agent about coverage for 4x4's he said "well thats why we ask you if your truck is a 2wd or a 4x4, because if it's listed as a 4x4, we assume your going to be taking it off road. thats what a 4x4 is for isn't it?"
i then asked if i was covered for "accidents" off road. my agent laughed and said "yes, your covered" :)

Sucks man your lucky it wasnt worse but at least its all fixed up. I would have thought that they would have painted the whole truck and not just the one side whatever works i guess

Nice move. At least insurance covered it for you. So what did you tell them?
