an unfortunate end for my 6-4...

hey guys,


once again i'd just like to start off by saying thanks for all the great information, you guys are the best!


the bad...

i was on my way to a funeral several hours north of where i live when i had a terrible accident. i say terrible not because i was hurt, i walked away relatively unharmed, but because my truck was a total write off...

i went into an ~8' ditch sideways at about 80KPH... unfortunately my snow plow mounts caught the ground almost instantly and catapulted the truck end over end onto the cab. anyway, i got knocked the *F* out by a fire extinguisher and didn't get to see what happened next but i gather the truck rolled back down into the ditch and the engine grenaded (the first people on the scene said it was still running/violently bucking). when i came to i ripped out my tuner i had myself a little cry by the side of the road - i knew the police would have many many questions and the truck would never run again...


the good...

-eventually i realized how lucky i was to walk, errr hobble, away from that accident

-i wasn't charged - i wasn't drinking nor was i speeding

-insurance eventually covered it

-and i bought a new truck last week


the new truck...

nearly exactly the same as the old one; its an XLT reg cab with under a hundred KM and a 6.4, this one has the ***six speed manual! my buddies said i was crazy for buying the same truck/engine combo twice - i said because they drove 6.7 cummins/6.6 GMC's i couldn't expect them to understand


and now for the pictures...

the last two are of my new truck while the preceding photos are of the accident - the second photo is of my roof folded way down in front of my seat, origami style.

i was obviously unable to return my truck to stock in the time i had available but i would really like to continue using their products. i have my mini and all associated hardware but it won't work on my new truck...

anyone know if H&S would be willing or able to help me out a little?

the next biggest problem at this point is finding an XRT/Mini/black in southern ontario - they're extinct or very close to it!


thanks for taking the time to read this guy!

H&s should help you out you should be able to transfer the tuner to the new truck just might have to pay a fee. My family lives near Windsor and nobody seems to know about dpf deletes or tuners in that area. Then out in alberta the dealerships build vehicles with deletes and warranty. Either way glad your ok and insurance helped ya out

Good to see you're fine. That's some scary stuff right there.

Trucks can be replaced. People can't.


It may be your only purpose in life is to serve as a warning for others.

Wowser!! That truck definitely took the brunt of it. I'm glad to hear you got out okay.

As the old saying goes, "Trucks can be replaced, people can't." Glad to see the insurance co took care of you. Good looking truck you have.
