    Sorry to see your truck that way GW and to lose a weekend at the same time. At least you weren't hurt and hopefully everything comes together and you get out ahead in the long run.

    If you can’t Dodge it, Ram it. Don’t buy another one!

    Scuse me sir, you can't park there!
    Sorry to hear about it, unfortunately it was a common problem from '02 on.

    Best of luck with the insurance, I just went through my first experience and all in all it was pretty good considering.

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

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

    You don't remember hitting anything? That's surprising because it takes a major whack to do that kind of damage. It's possible that whole front end assembly let go without hitting anything. Ball joint failure and the snowball effect might be the culprit. Believe it or not,the insurance company may decide to repair it which is quite doable. Don't write the truck off,yet,especially right now when things in the auto industry are really sideways. Be thankful it didn't let go on the 400 or some such. You may not have been around to talk about it. Glad you didn't get hurt.

    Yeah, maybe I will have to slow down and not drive the logging roads as fast and creep along like my Buddy does LOL.

    Well it was just a truck and luckily it didn't happen along the cliff side and very glad my son wasn't with me.

    But all in all, crap happens and life goes on.

    Worse part is I probably won't have a truck for deer season which means I can't use the ATV, which means if we get any deer I am going to have to pull them out by hand. Wife already said I am not taking her Sorento SUV out deer hunting (I think she's afraid I might take it in the woods ).
    As if I would do something dumb with her SUV
