    Well I made it about 500' from my house reached over to grab a bottle of water off the floor and bang. Hit the tree going about 30-35mph. The sad part is I don't think I could have centered the tree up any better if I were aiming for it. Truck did everything I ever asked of it and probably saved me from any real serious injuries. I should be able to salvage my plow mounts, battery's, etc. Just tough to see what I did to a hell of a good truck.

    Work truck model no airbags. Which is actually a good thing in this case that would have probably messed me up more.

    She's pretty bent in the front. Not really worth the hassle. I'm going to break her down and keep everything I can because I'm going to buy the same gen GM. It was a damn good truck. Thanks for the well wishes guys.

    Yup I went out an sat in the seat one last time and thanked her, Its a strange bond between a man and his truck especially guys like us that work with them.

    Goldpro no I didn't crap my pants hahaha. I was trying to catch my breath. I was out of the truck about 30 seconds after I crashed it.

    nj snowremoval thats the thing that kills me I had the cleanest obs gm around easily. no rust on the body or underneath. Loved working on my truck it was like working on a brand new vehicle.
