The guy who owns the BMW dealership in Newport went to high school with me. Rich kid. He was the only one of the three boys that ever worked, so daddy gave him the dealership.

Great news guys! I got in touch with the insurance company today. They said the other driver will be liable for the damages and they accepted responsibility for the damages! This is so awesome, I can't express how excited I am! This means I don't have to pay for a rental now while my truck gets repaired, and will save me a decent amount of money! Almost like a down payment from the insurance company to do the repairs.

In case some of you don't remember, I had a really bad accident about a year ago (pictured below)


Then the more recent damages.....




My original estimate was 5K for the doors, the bed, the fender on the driver's side. Then I decided later to get another estimate and added the bumper, respray the hood and the passenger fender and it went up to 7K. The great thing is now I get to to use the insurance money from this accident and take advantage of the rental while all these repairs get done! My plan is to redo the driver's side doors, the bed the fender, the hood, and the passenger side fender. I'm tempted to find an 08 tailgate and get it sprayed while I'm at it but.....we'll see

You have to lose those 4.56s, when these trucks run over 2000 RPMs the fuel mileage sucks. That camper you're pulling doesn't look like it weighs that much but you said your mileage sucks when you're empty, has to be the gearing.
