The damage to is worse than it looks. Both head lights are broken and the rad was pissing coolant. As for me.., the bumper is slighty dented and the change that was in my cup holder is everywhere.

one reason i love having a hitch on my truck.



totalled out a brand spankin new 06 maxima by hitting my hitch 2 years ago. her insurance company cut me a $1800 check, i bought a bumper for $125-150(i dont remember..it was cheap), and rocked it. can't even tell it was hit anymore.

The Edge wanted to sniff your Ranger butt.

Looks good on it. Ford pulled the Edge badge name from the Ranger to make way for that ugly thing.......well it looks bad and takes a punch on the nose like a puss.

Nice save with the Hitch. My truck didn't come with one so as soon as I save the money up for one its getting put on.

See now I always leave my receiver in the hitch to ensure damage if any hits me. Nothing like a big **** hole in you radiator, also works well in parking lots, they have to hit that before your truck. So you know if you come out and see damage chances are you got them to.

Bent frame = new ride so momma scored! I just think after a werck you need to fix it then trade it in. No car is ever right again after it take a hard hit. That’s why after you smack your head with a helmet on you're supposed to replace the helmet. It just takes something away from it.
