First scratch & dent

Three weeks ago I was merging onto an exit and bam! Idiot next to me decides he needs to exit from the center lane, jumping the curb, with his old Ford Taurus wagon. Needless to say he didn't make the exit but left me with 3k in damage. Luckily, it was mostly rear door damage and scrapes. Front door,rear quarter, and flare re-painted. Rear door totally replaced(Ford) and painted. No damage to inner rocker or rear door pillar. Truck is fixed now with no signs of carnage. Big thanks to Jerry at Ultimate Collision in Edison

i swerved to miss a deer

rear wheel both flat, bent and shredded.

and the guardrail that saved me from going off the cliff and into the river.

I hope the deer appreciated what you did for her Matt. Even though I hate to see your damaged truck, I am sure glad the guard rail held you from going off the road.

I know how you guys feel. Back in August I was leaving work and some guy in a Jeep Grand Cherokee decided to pay more attention to his phone than the road, I stopped behind a car waiting to turn left and before I knew what was going on, I felt something hit my truck. I got a new bed and rear bumper out of the deal, Ford replaced. You cannot tell now from looking at the truck, I took it too a ford dealership body shop, but it still boils my blood thinking about it.

I don't know how insurance in other states works, but here in Jersey most insurance companies require the repairer use aftermarket or used parts.....buyer beware

If you guys/gals get your truck repaired, please DEMAND they use NEW, Ford parts

Getting the rental makes them move a little faster
