Unhappy Accident. Sad Day.

So I was pulling some moron out of a frozen lake and on my way out of the place I slid into a berm and pushed my running board in pretty good. Estimate for repair is $5500 and it didn't even touch the body panels.

Let this be a lesson to us all don't use your running boards as rock sliders. Other than this the truck did amazing in the mud, especially for having the stock Contis on there.

They told me it would be about 4 weeks worth of repair. Replacing cab corner, rocker panels and steps.

The problem is that it pulled the rockers in with it and messed up the rear door seal. You have to slam the door to get it shut. The pics suck, but there's a lot of damage underneath. They're replacing inner and outer rocker panels, lower A pillar and rear cab corner. I'll probably have them put electric running boards on it instead of replacing the $456.00 Ford running board.

The suckiest part of the whole thing is that Enterprise gave me a Chevy Silverado 1500 for a rental. I'll be glad when my baby is back. I've got a $1000 deductible so to me, it's worth it to fix it right.

Yeah, PM me a price with shipping to 84044. Insurance said they'll apply the cost of the factory step toward whatever I wanted.
