    Same here. I have the following damage as a result of plowing:

    Both cab corners are dented
    Pass Door is dented
    Tailgate is shacked (I pushed it into a tree with the SS. Didn't see it under the snow)
    Left bedside has a three foot "crease" from backing up next to a shed. Corner board was missing, didn't see a nail sticking out.
    Right front fender has another self inflicted crease
    Bottom of bed on both sides is pushed in
    What else?

    Nick, the truck looks nice. Nice to see you pulled the bed. Doesn't take long, and you can do a better job.

    Dave, is that truck silver or off white? Saw a new Dodge the other day, almost like GMs bone white. Looked pretty sharp.

    What do you have? I could barely keep my eyes open church Sunday, and have been sleeping 12-15 hours a day since. Of course I have insomnia tonight LOL. Hoping the doctor has a cancellation tomorrow.

    I got acute Bronchitus. So this heat and humidity are killing me. I am ok as long I stay put. I went and saw doctor(urgent care place) he gave me some Xopenx(inhaler) and some expensive anti biotic. Bastards didnt have a generic for it. I started to feel better today. Nothing worse than going outside and gasping for air. Plus the fatigue set in. So I really couldnt do much anyway. I got it over the winter and it cleard up in 3 days. It was no where near as bad as this. When they tell you it all goes down hill at 40 they are not kidding. I never got sick in the past. Minor cold here and there but never slowed me down like this has.

    Your from Maine. I was at the The Forks last week.

    Jeez, you suck at driving,lol.

    My truck only has a dent in the tailgate which was there when I got it. Otherwise every other pannel is straight and dent and scratch free. My only problem is the rust bunnies have taken over the body of the truck from the body line down.

    You know what? I just remembered I had bronchitis this time last year. Worried it might be Lyme disease at this point. At least that wouldn't be as bad as diabetes or anemia.

    howdy boys thanks for the nice comments:drinkup: to answer a few questions the shop is a buddy of mines in manayunk, we did not paint the whole truck just the cab corners from the body line down and the entire bed,the front of the truck was just done 2 years ago and still looks good other then some chips on the door edges, the bed was damaged over the past winter when my brother tried to take out a booth at a parking lot in the city:cry:i lucked out and found a real straight bed off a 95 chevy at the u pull it yard $200 later and some beer and man hours its looking pretty sweet again ;)finished pics next week

    Hey Nick, just noticed you have an "older" fleet there. Do you count on every truck running all storm, every storm, or do you have quite a bit of redundancy factored in there?

    Good looking fleet. I think I am headed backwards as I grow mine.
