Rearended today

Just got home for the day. Dad was on his way out to a concert and mentioned that a mini van rear-ended him today. There is a black mark on the bumper and it totalled the van

He didn't take any pics so visualize it. He said quote "It's guts were laying on the ground"

That's why I love driving a big truck.

Much much much safer!

Thats a good kill in my opinion. Impressive to as I think the ford bumpers (at least mine) look weak.

Well what do you expect............... a Super Duty against a Plastic POJ! I don't know if it is that our bumpers are so stout as it is cars, vans and lesser trucks or a total loss waiting to happen.
