Starting all over.......Killed Myself

I am taking the whole situation with a grain of salt, and saying one door closes to another one opening. Lets just say I made the 11pm News here in Buffalo, NY on Sat less than 24hours after I got home on xmas vacation. WKBW - TV - Video - Video - Saturday Night Top Stories 12/20/08
Have to wait until the F 150 commercial with mike roe then fast forward to the clock time of 11:04 just shy of 1/2 way and right after Jenny Rizzo in the red coat is done.

Got home safe in the snow storm the night before and I F'n roll my truck the next day on wet pavement!!!!!! Will post more pics of the damage here in then next few days when I get it back.

So here is the story: Saturday afternoon in Buffalo, on way home from Xmas shopping on a 2 lane wide exit ramp I am in the right lane and road is curving to the right, in traffic, and as we coming around the corner, the 6ft snow bank on my right start creeping further and further in my lane, slowing down to about 30-35mph, person on my left not giving me any room to move over, I start creeping closer and closer to the bank. Didnt want to step on the brakes and create a pile up which I ended up doing anyways.... Started into a little bit of slush on the front passenger tire, then it was like a "hand of God" instantly the front end of the truck gets sucked into the snow bank, back end starts sliding around as the passenger front tire starts to climb up the pile, at 90 degrees and 10-15mph, the truck dumps on is side, slows down to 5-10 as it finishes going over upside down, and front of truck about 120 degrees from where it should be pointed. I got out fine, dog was scare chit less, but unharmed. cab of the truck destroyed. Passenger side front of cab took most of the damage. and the only window that survived was the driverside rear door. probably the only thing that kept my dog from rolling out the window.

Will give everyone a chance to chime in that I am safe, then will start talking what my options and plans are now. 95% sure will be getting a different PSD, but not sure what motor and trans, and will have parts for sale, #1 item will be the Lift. Northern boys that drive in the snow dont need to be that high in the air.....

At least you're ok. Sounds like a good time to upgrade. We can have a few wrenching days when you get back down here and have your new setup.

Yeah I am looking into my options, deciding whether I should go with a 7.3 again and swap stuff over, or just go for it and get a 6.0, studs and EGR delete. But for sure the lift is going. Will start another thread in a few days to discuss it becuase most in this thread are going to be interested in what happened, not quite where I am going to go from here.
