    Yes it could have been that. But I think it will be a write off we pulled the tire off and the shock and axle was still attached the ball joint and steering knuckle are snapped. My Buddy is suppose to take some pics tomorrow when they bring it out.

    Actually wasn't worried about myself but miss the truck and thank god my kid wasn't with me. But nothing came through the cab. Thank goodness the straps held on to the ATV. I have the big ones good for 3000 pounds each and four straps holding it, didn't even move nor did the canoe. But a really nice weekend was ruined.

    Oh,that's OK. No self-respecting hunter would get caught dead taking a Sorento hunting,anyway. OOOPS,did I say that out loud? Don't tell her I said that.

    Far as make lets face it they all burn fuel and break down.
    That was always my state of mind as well, until.....

    As far as brand loyalty, I have none, they all break, wear out and die. Always had GM but they got screwy on their warranty and my last one sucked.

    Going to my F150 last fall proved good for me. It's far better in the woods than my 2500 slimerado, better in snow, turns sharper and rides smoother. Two weeks of payments per month is paid by fuel savings alone. Bought a trailer so not to mess up the bed as bad.

    GW, why do you feel you won't have this sorted by deer season?

    On the downside, as someone else mentioned, prices suck at the moment. I just saw a 2017 ram go by from the Bancroft dealer, $43,700! I paid that for brand new last year! 44K for a 5 year old truck, just nuts, that truck wouldn't have been 5K more brand new!

    If I were you I'd be looking for a trailer to bring the ATV. Once you get your truck you can always sell it at the same price you paid for it. You'll have to pay taxes when you transfer the ownership and plate it but having the ATV might be worth it.

    Good luck finding a new truck these days. I ordered a factory 2021 and it's now 4 months and counting and have been told it could be 6 months +. I might cancel the order and go for a 2022 instead. This pandemic has sure messed the world up.

    That's why we have them so as we age they are supposed to do the heavy lifting. Problem is my sons who are early and late 20s seem to be absent when most needed and the old man has to get er done .

    Sorry about your luck with the truck. Hope it all works out.
    They say a man turns old when sorrow and regret take the place of hope and dreams
