crashed the ferd!

Alright so i was heading home from a friends house a few hours agao and it just finished snowing so i was going about 30 when i see a car on the side of the road parked so i kind of drove into the other lane alittle just incase they opend the door or something but instead they decided top pull out right infront of me so i had the choice of hitting them or putting the truck into the ditch so i put it in the ditch. im lucky i was goin about 20 when i hit and it hit nose into a bank and all that happend was that the black plastic thats under the front bumper got pushed under abit and the cooler to the power steering got cracked. It was clearly his fault that i had to put it into the ditch but now i wish i would hav just hit him cuz the guy just drove around me once i hit the ditch and just kept going. so i finally get out of the ditch and there was no light around so i drove it home and when i about half way i lost my brakes so im guessing i blew a line or something like that so i just went really slow and just used 1st and 2nd for brakes until i got home. so im preatty sure i can just get a cooler from the junk yard but i was wondering if it has to be a cirtain one or if i could just get on that looks to be the right size and use that. Im not to worried about the brakes i had to have just blew a line some were.
All in all i feel really lucky they isnt a dent to be seen on the truck other then the plastic piece that got foled unt the fron of the truck but im sure i can pull the brackets out and staighten that back out.
any help with the cooler would be great. and sorry if this is posted in the wrong area.

Man, don't that just make ya want to crack some head! And I'm about as easy going a guy as you would ever find, but nutjobs do stuff like that, GRRRRR!!

It wont matter on the cooling end of things and a trans cooler would be fine. But I think as far as fitment a stock one would just bolt right in and space starts running out fast when making things fit. A parts house or a rad shop can order this kind of stuff in all manner of shapes for not all that much money sometimes.

Good luck and about your

well im gunna go pick up the cooler to day and hopefuly it fixes the brakes to. i was just looking and the brake fluid is still full so it has to just be the power steering right? im going to go over to napa and see what they have and if i cant find anything i will just go up the the junk yard and pick one up thats the same size. next time im just gunna hit the guy and let them deal with the damage.
