    From what we gather, it was raining, and this was a back road.. Coal trucks use that road transporting coal down the mountain, so there was a film of coal that made the road really slick.... He hit the curve a little too fast and flipped a couple times and slid sideways for about 30 feet... Hes lucky that he ended up where he was, if he slid on the other side of the road he would have dropped about 50 feet.... He did walk away.... just a couple bruises...

    I liked that truck alot, but I really am a GM guy at heart.... I've always liked that body style, and I had the 6.0 in a denali once and loved it.... I will miss the smell of diesel in the morning......

    I will say this as far as the 7.3 is concerned, when that truck flipped and rolled it still was running on its side, absolutely no smoke or anything.... That truck was a beast.....

    I was gonna try to go after it, but it wasn't worth it... insurance kept the whole thing...

    Read above..

    I'm not sure what I'm gonna get yet... I've looked at a couple fishers... nice stuff...

    Western is all i've ever had, a red western would look awesome on the truck... They totaled out the trailer... Don't know how much they will give yet, hopefully will know tomorrow...

    Poor guy. Lose a Ford and got a GMC, major loss :/

    Good luck with the new truck. Trailer in that picture was fine right?

    I will say this, that Ford was a good truck, but it sure had some hard seats, that chevy is has a lot more comfortable seats!

    The insurance deemed the trailer a total loss...
