    I have a tough time believing that was done at only 5 mph... I am calling BS on the story he is telling you

    I call bs cause I see everything but the truck frame being bent at 5mph for the truck frame to be bent i would say more like 25 or 35mph.

    What a Ford 150? Even so he's full of it, tell him when you filed the accident report to the insurance company they investigated and have it on camera.

    That is like a "Perfect Storm" type of curb hitting. I would guess he was going way faster than 5MPH though. I think we have all hit curbs at that speed. 25MPH though would be a closer bet.

    I have a buddy who just did the same thing to his truck, he also claims to be going about 5mph. He bent the A-frame, headgear, mounting shoes, creased his frame, and "misaligned" the passengers side front shock.

    My mom came over for dinner a few weeks ago and side swiped my truck with her mirror on the way out of the driveway. If she didn't want to come over she should have said so. Just under $700 to repair and it only left a scuff mark on the mirror of her Camry.

    WOW! 5 mph? I don't know about that. If the whole thing is junk and the truck. I'm with Mark maybe 105.

    ok get rid of this man....this guy is stupid if he hits a curb at 5mph and doest realize after driving completely over the curb. as soon as i feel a bump i stop.....he must of hit a curb and then was like HMMMMM???? the truck aint goin nowhere maybe if i just step on the gas more to 8,000 rpm it will go....if you dont fire him he will continue to think it is ok to make 5mph mistakes on 30+ thousand dollar trucks.

    like said 5mph my a$$. :laughing:

    i am no pro plow guy like some here but i have seen my fair share of damage. i seen a old school fisher a little more bent. he was doin 45mph down the road got in a wreck truck went off road and headon in a tree. was NOT plowing at the time just road travle.

    thats B.S. on 5mph. but then again fisher/western stuff has been havin a bad trac record with crap welds and stuff not made strong like the old days. :rolleyes:

    and if the plow frame on the truck is bend better go get the frame checked and def alignment check i will beet payup its tweeked or alignment way out.

    I have bent (broke) a moldboard and there are pictures here to prove it.
    The curbs I hit to start the breaks were @ about 25-30 mph. I can see maybe the construction plate making a dent or something to the plow but the damage to the truck shows it was more then a 5 mph hit.

    teeth marks aren't the problem it's getting the actual teeth out that is the problem
