Very very true. Thats with any vehicle though. I pinned a shopping cart against a wall in my 1986 cadillac coupe deville at about 15mph...yeah that hurt. The cart didnt give, the car didnt give, the wall didnt give, so I felt everything.

What's the bronc look like?

It did get hit in about the weakest body section. Any truck 2010-19whathaveyou would dent pretty good by getting whacked in the bed side.


And to jwindbigler - newer cars "give" for a reason, so YOU don't feel "everything",

Don't take that the wrong way though.............. I love our 83' MB, NOTHING is built as strong as those older cars. The newer ones may be "safer" for you though, they "crumple" for a reason.

Here is the Bronco it does not look much worse now then it did before the crash. A new headlight and I seen him driving it. The crappy part with the Duramax is that it cut the rear tire and broke the rim insurance will only pay for a prorated $$ not a new one.

I have had to deal with this as well. Only pro-rating for tread left on the tire. What kind of crap is that. Thats just they way that insurance works though. Only want to dish out as little as possible, and charge you as much as possible. I HATE the fact that its required. I like the idea of insurance, and I think that everyone should have it, but I dont think that it should be required.
