Unhappy Wrecked my truck

Wet road, coming down a steep hill, touched the brakes and locked up the rear tires. Road was blasted out of the side of the hill and I hit the rock embankment. Got the front bumper, passenger front fender, front tire and axle plus suspension and steering knuckle. Will try to get a picture later.

Sorry man! Feel your pain. I was in a pile up heading out of Pittsburgh this summer. Not as much damage as you. Bumper, lights, grill, running board.

Sorry man!

Yeah, I called my buddy who is a body shop mechanic (Wreck Tech in Madison if you've heard of it) to come out and pick me up. He gave it a going over out on the side of the road and it looked like the radiator core support got moved some.

Tow truck driver had a hell of a time getting it on the flatbed. Front of the truck was still in the rocks, steering wheel just spun freely so he couldn't get the wheels straight had to pull it up on the flatbed from the back. Of course the truck kept wanting to go to the side with the front wheels turned to the right. All this on the side of one steep hill. Cop told me I was lucky I was in something that sized, usually smaller vehicles run up the rocks and flip rather than just plowing into them. He said it was the 4th or 5th accident he had been at in the same spot.
