    sup guys so last small storm we had it snowed like an inch and a half, then turned to pretty much pure ice, i was on my way homw, and a full size tow truck slid down a hill at a slow rate of speed and smacked into my truck, i was stopped because i saw him coming and had no where to go, he hit me with the back of his truck, kinda just side swiped me then our bumpers got connected and he dragged me back down the hill about another 10 feet until i hit a curb and we stopped. pics suck as its my camera phone and the truck was dirty but you get the point. i have no idea what the estimates are gona be to fix it but i guess we will see.

    no everything looks fine underneath, just cosmetic, i might just get the check, and fix it in the spring, i dont really want to put the truck in the shop right in the middle of the snow season.

    So you got hit by a tow truck and I got hit by a salt/snowplow truck, this isn't starting off to good.

    Now would be a great time to throw a flat bed dump on it. I am glad that you are able to plow. My wifes 07 tahoe got slammed into the other day.

    At least your plow didn't get the direct hit like mine did. I'd rather have him catch the rear of my truck than the front. Hopefully it all gets fixed and back to good condition.

    Hows that other ram workin' out for you?

    bare minimum get it on a frame machine and have it checked. then make sure the alignment is good. if he shoved you in to a curb for 10 feet of movement then bam in curb. plus the fact that he was a lot bigger than you. i would hate to see you get body money and then need frame or axle money. ya never know.:rolleyes:

    I'm actually pretty surprised how limited the damage is considering what hit you and that it dragged you down the street.

    Glad you're ok...get the check and pop in a taillight and wait till spring...nobody can be truckless right now.
