    Default I think I need a new truck now

    Well I was heading to my camping spot in Bissett Creek for what looked like an awesome weekend. Loaded up with the ATV, canoe and all my gear for a relaxing weekend of target shooting and fishing. Then.....

    I called the insurance and I am covered. Hard part will be finding a new truck.

    Must have hit something and blew ball joint from what I can tell.

    Had to cut a road around the truck so my buddy could get around with his truck and then we unload my equipment into his truck and I drove my ATV to our camping spot. Never bothered to fish or canoe. Drank some beer went to bed and got up early to pack and figure out what were going to do.

    Truck is still there right now. Tow company with off road machine will retrieve it Monday, my buddy will escort them in to where they are.

    It is what it is, nothing I can do. Hopefully the insurance will pay out.

    Think I will stick with Dodge I liked that truck it had 4WD on the floor. Not that electronic crap. But I am going to get something much newer I think and maybe even go new not sure yet. The Dodge truck new what I want is 51K

    No I am going through insurance, so they will mostly likely write it off. It's plausible I could repair it but insurance won't the cost to repair will likely be considered to great. I will go look at it next weekend when they get it out.

    Who know if it is reparable by me, maybe the insurance will pay me out and I buy it back for 300 like I did with one of my one of my SUV's. One of my SUV's was written off and I bought it back for 300 and had it back on the road in 1 week for 500 bucks.

    Luckily I was not going down the road where the cliff was that would have made it difficult to cut a road around for us to get out with my friends truck.

    The whole Knuckle and tie rod and shock assembly is ripped right out.

    Yeah I was OK kind of freaky when it let go and the truck started skidding down the road, was really pissed that my weekend was ruined. I really liked this truck it had was a 2005 Dodge Larmine 4x4 on the floor and it was in nice shape and only had 164 k on it.

    Doubt if I can find a old one like that again. Thinking of just going to buy new or very new, Have to wait first and hear from the insurance.

    I do see a few on Kijiji around 10 - 20 K. But i really did like this truck.

    Bad time for buying trucks around here, used ones are selling almost as much as new ones.
