    Just me in mine and him in his...nobody hurt. Will take about 4 hours to get it roadworthy, but will have to take it to the body shop for the door and fender. Looks like it sheared the axle locating pin and shoved it back along the spring about a foot. Disconnected the slip yoke. Gotta let the insurance look at it first. Just bought an 08 powerstroke but its in the shop getting thermostats put in...good thing too or i would have been in it!

    Started at the front tire and went all the way to the rear axle. There is part of his bumper in between the tire and rim.

    Wow,

    Two smash up threads going on at the same moment..... Is this a Plowsite first ?


    BTW,

    Sorry to see what happened to your truck, but at least you walked away and weren't spending the next several weeks in a hospital..... or buried 6 ft down..

    I got hit right before Christmas by a gal with no divers license or insurance. Totaled the car she was driving and did about 6000 worth of damage to my truck. I sure hope the guy that hit you had insurance cause it sucks when it has to go on yours. I now have a claim on my insurance for something that I had nothing to do with...it was basically stated that I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. My insurance company was good about fixing everything and buying me a new weatherguard toolbox as well which they will have to go after her now to try to get the money. I know what your feeling though..glad to hear your ok.

    They valued my truck with the plow and flatbed and am getting a check in the morning that is just shy of the amount that would have totaled it. I will fix the mechanicals and put it in the bodyshop for the cosmetic. Then Im taking the family skiing!
