I Got Killed....

Well today was a sad day for me and even sadder for my truck. This morning coming home from the late shift my truck met it's fate in the shape of a telephone pole when I fell asleep at the wheel. It looks pretty bad. I took a couple pics and will post later. Ins Co still has to assess it, but it don't look good since the truck is an 03.

Now the big debate is what to do if they scrap it. I'm not too up to date on the new 6.4L, just that the fuel mileage is terrible. Any suggestions? Thanks guys.

Damn bud, are you alright? If you walked away, then you should consider yourself lucky.

I know it's not fun having a wrecked truck, but having fallen asleep at the wheel things could have been a lot worse.

Hope everything works out with the truck.

Glad to hear you are fine - Trucks can be replaced, people can't.
