    Im sorry I just have to vent I guess, Heres the storie. I was out on Friday last week at my power equp dealer talking and I left my truck at home and took the van. Well on friday my sister took her drivers test and passed. Well my mom took her home and then she had to go to nursing school, so my sister is home alone. We guess what happen........She takes my truck keys out of my room off my desk and decides to go take my truck for a joy ride. Well it had snowed the day before and the roads were all slippery and what not. Well shes not use to driving a big vehical with a V8 and shes down on the throttle and she gets lose and smashes the right front tire into a a 90 deg curb and throws the whole front end out of wack, She hit it so hard that the clamps for the tie rod ends moved. Now i need to go pay fifty dam dollars to go get a front end alignment and may have to replace some tie rods.
    Now i am going to start taking my keys with me. Atleast she didnt hit someone or smash the truck up. :realmad: :nono: :mad: :(

    Wesley- This reminds me of the time my sister backed right in to the passenger door on my old 86' GMC. I was loading my equipment on the trailer, she was late for work, and didn't bother looking while backing up. I made her pay for a used one from a junkyard. The thing was bright "school bus" yellow. I had to drive around for a few days like that, too. She felt bad, so she also painted the door for me.
    This was 6 years ago and she is still a terrible driver.

    Time to get one of those anti-theft devices,where you have to push a certain button,or wave a little microchip near the dash,before the truck runs.Most insurance co's will foot the bill too_Only you will know how to start it.

    oh....and make her pay off whatever damage she did.

    I agree, make her work it off. I bet she wouldn't take the truck again after doing a little slave labour.

    You'd be surprised at what can bend, a quick way to check if the wheel is back guage the gap between the tire and fender with your hand, this will give you a rough estimate. I would still get bolth front wheels ballanced.

    As far as it being a one ton, and everything being tough, that may be true, but remember, curbs dont move,you'd be surprised at what can bend, a quick way to check if the wheel is back guage the gap between the tire and fender with your hand, this will give you a rough estimate. I would still get bolth front wheels ballanced.
