Wings couldn't take the heat!

    Stupid drunk decided to turn into his driveway right in front of me. I had just finished installing my brand new pro wings about 30 minutes before this so the only thing I've plowed with them is another truck!

    The frame of the truck has literally ripped where the plow mounts to it. Haven't heard from insurance yet what they want to do. The truck is in a shop right now being looked at. Now that this damage is done, there will always be a weak spot and who knows when it'll bend or bust on me again so I hope they don't fix it.

    Anyway, I'm trying to figure out how to put a picture on here so when I figure it out, I'll show you some of the damage.

    Sorry to hear that, A good welder should be able to fix it by adding steel plates making it stronger then new.

    The easiest way for pics is to open a photobucket account. Once you upload pics there, copy the IMG code from there and paste it here.

    Yep, a good frame shop can make her better than new. Just had an accident myself with the plow on the truck, they were able to straighten and reinforce the frame and you'd never know it had been fixed if I didn't tell you.
