Long story short.....he hit a patch of black ice on the local mountain roads around here, slid, hit a ditch then hit some trees, rolled.....he walked away no injury's. These pics are over 2 years old...but never posted them before.

That is why I like Rangers, you can roll them and still walk away without getting hurt or seriously hurt.

I don't think it completely rolled over....got on its side, then back to it's feet, then to the other side of the road....something like that ithink. I don't remember all too well, it has been over 2 years.

Worst part about it...i even talked to the insurance company about getting it to buy the hood and tires! the hood was good! the hood was good!

I think it is crap & I'm not kidding. I think it is unsafe to drive. You know what I can't let you drive it anymore. I am sending up a flatbed to pick it up and bring it here so you won't have to deal with it. I'll take care of it for ya.



p.s. That really does suck about your friends truck!

Black Ice sucks. I hit a patch on I-84 outside of little toilet town called La Grande. Sent me skittering across the road and into a ditch. Thank god for lockers and swamper tires and a nice, grassy shoulder. I aired down to 20 lbs and ran the shoulder for close to 10 miles.

thats like watching another guy get hit in the ***** wow, that does suck a lot glad to hear that everything is alright with your bud. I hear more and more people getting into wrecks with tacos, and dimes and they dont walk away... on the other hand (the good one lol) people in rangers walk away more often, and crack a few jokes cause they know they can buy it back and build it better

Yea.....it's sooo nice to hear everybody likes my truck(sarcasm). It is indeed highly unsafe to drive. Everybody should park their ranger's because everybody is in a deathtrap.

Its funny that the hood was untouched, and kinda "popped" right off. The incident itself, is definately not funny.
