Truck totaled

Well had some more good luck the other day. A dumb #@$ that was late for work pulled out in front of me. I slammed into his Nissan titan and spun it into a Silverado. Settled with his insurance company today, got kinda screwed but i knew i would. Bought the truck back and now its time to fix it. Gonna need the front section of the frame replaced as my frame actually tore near the rt front shock.

That will buff out. If you are close to Indiana I know where you can get a frame for next to nothing.

That sucks, I notice you are a fellow oregonian. If you are looking for help on parts, check out Northwest Ford Diesels

Where are you at in Oregon? I also have a stock hood I could give you.

This almost happened to me today. A guy was coming onto the interstate up ahead and it was one of those lanes that turns into an exit only. SO he has to merge into that lane(which was barely moving), then merge onto the interstate. He swerved into a spot in the transition lane, then immediatley swerved into my lane without looking. He was driving some small 4-cyl beat up car from 1993ish and he swerved so hard into traffic that his tires looked like thay were bottoming out in his fender wells. If there had been a car in the lane next to me, I would have ended up in his back seat cause there was no way I could stop in time. These trucks don't go 60-0 in 20 yards.

People get in too much of a hurry and stop thinking about others. Glad you're okay bro, hope it works out with your truck.

Yeah, i seen it coming and hit the brakes as hard as i could but couldn't get stopped fast enough.

I'll keep everyone updated with the repairs. so far i have to replace the hood, rt fender, grill, bumper, radiator, a/c condenser, p/s cooler, headlights, radiator support, headlight support, and front section of the frame.
