So me and my girl were going to the beach the other night. She, yes she, I know keep your comments to yourself, went to pass a Honda CR-V when the Honda decided to make a left turn right in front of us. We were running between 60 and 70. Needless to say the CR-V didnt fair very well. Neither did Lil Red. The insurance company said total loss. So now the search is on for a new truck. I think I found one all ready though. It is an 03 4 door dually Centinnal edition. The only thing is its a sics-ohhh. It has 159000 miles but that doesnt really bother me as bad as the 6.0. By the way, I am fine, she fractured 3 ribs, and the other driver has a broken collar bone. I will try to get some pics up soon.

The worst part is the injectors, turbo, and BTS tranny is gone. My insurance company doesnt sell the owner the truck back either. They gave me the auction adress and phone number so I can try to get it back from them but you hav to have a dealer license or have a friend in the biz. Im gonna try and get it back so we'll see. All the aftermarket stuff will be worth getting it back.

Hey man,
The only way the insurance company is allowed to keep the aftermarket stuff on your truck is if you had a policy on those particular items. If all they're reimbursing you for is for an 03 F250 and none of the aftermarket stuff, that can't keep it and you are well within your rights to fight it. They may want for you to furbish the OEM parts and so that's the only kicker. This is a great lesson learned for everyone else. If you've done fancy stuff to your ride, let your insurance company know to see if they will provide you with additional coverage. I know American Family does. Sorry for the loss though man. That was one tough truck.

Man that sucks!

If you could, you could swap that tranny, turbo, and injectors with a buddy who has all stock stuff and make several grand or better! Would make a serious down payment on the new(er) truck!

Oh that's right, put them in your 99!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Man, I hope you get that truck back, convert your 99 to auto!
