    Hey just wanted to let you guys know that this morrning on my way to work I got into a head on accident in my "new truck". It was a 00' gmc sierra 3\4 ton ext cab short box. I got hit head on at about 7:15 today in my hometown of Adams mass. A car crossed into my lane and the two vehicals hit on the drivers sides. So far the word is that the truck is totaled. Milage on the truck was about 48,900 miles.

    Later today I am going to take pictures of the truck at the impound yard. Hopefully I will have them up tonight or tomarrow for you to see. It hurt bad but I have no big inguries, just bumps and bruses.

    Dam. You know the worst part if it is totaled is that after Ins. pays, you might still owe.... So how bad does your neck and back hurt?......

    I'd see if it's totalled how much you can buy it back for usually cheap, strip the wheels and everythign els eyou want and part it out.

    Hey guys thanks for the positive responce. Buff job, maybe I can jet a guy down the street to do it for a 30 pack!!!LOL!!!!:drinkup:
    Well I am starting today to look for a new truck. I want the same as I had. Maybe I can get one alittle newer because I don't need a plow. Yesterday I looked at the harness and it looks allmost intact.
    New truck, new plow recivers, new timbrens = more moneypayup .

    Glad to hear that you are OK.

    A couple of things to think about though. In the event thet determine it to be totaled you should find out from you agent what was insured and what was not. In most cases in MA. things like you beacon lights, radios & electronics that were added by you are not covered by your insurance policy. You are entitled to remove those before it goes to the auction. You also want to check about the plow it may or may not be part of what the ins. co. was covering and again you may be entitled to keeping the blade, headgear, iso module etc..........

    The other thing is if it is theirs you can switch your blade out for a crappy one you or a buddy might have. The guy who comes to pick it up to take it to the ins. co's auction doesn't know or care what blade you originally had.

    Good luck and glad that you are OK.

    Hey man, thank God you're alright. It really sucks to see that truck looking the way it does, but trucks can be replaced, life can't. Seeing those pics sent chills down my spine, I immediately pictured my truck looking the same! :eek:
