    I was on my way to work when a big cube truck slamed on his brakes and by the time I realized what was going on I jumped on my brakes. I live in the country for we drive around 55mph everywhere we go. When I did the rear tires locked up and sent me into a slide, then off the road into a little ditch(thought I was still alright at this point) then the drivers side front tire caught on the blacktop road(now not doing so good). The next thing I new (I was clintching my bench seat for dear life)(no roll cage......yet) I was up on my top sliding on the road then in some grass.
    <br>I was alright no bumps no bruses a few scrapes thats all. Everybody watching thought I was a goner. I carwled out the passenger side window, get out to look at my beautiful truck all smashed up. The roof crushed about 1/2 way down on the doors(so there wasn't much room for me to squeeze out(good thing I am skinny).
    <br>Tow truck flipped it over so I thought I wonder if it will start. Hell yea it did(got to love chevys).
    <br>So now it is time to rebuild, I was planing on upgrading anyways(now bone stock) but it is not the way I wanted to do it.
    <br>To beat all that stupid truck driver didn't even stop to see if I was alright. They said he took off like a bat out of hell.
    <br>
    <br>If anyone has a good cab for a '85 era truck(4x4) I need one.
    <br>
    <br>I count my prayers it could have been ALOT WORSE. Thankfull to be here. Just thought I would share my crappy day with you all.
    <br>
    <br>Later,
    <br>Don

    Re: Flipped my truck yesterday.

    Sorry to hear of your misfortune!
    If you don't mind driving to Alabama to get it, I know where a complete truck is. It is smashed in the front, but the rest of the truck is in pretty good shape. In fact, the front isn't really that bad, I think the truck could easily be put back together. It is a Silverado with air and power everything. It doesn't appear to have any rust in it. The guy that has it isn't willing to part it out, he wants to sell it whole for $800. Let me know if you want it and I will make sure he still has it and het his phone number to you.

    What a bummer - your definitely lucky that you didn't get banged up. Hit and run driver's are about the lowest on the ol' totem pole!

    WOW! Glad to hear your OK. Ever since seeing pics of Desert Duelers rig after he rolled it down a hill made me feel much better about having a Blazer.

    I will most likely have a cab available in a week or so if your interested. It will be near Tampa Fla. P/M me if you would be interested in that long of a ride.

    good hell I bet I could get you a cab in northern utah for next to nothing. It may have to come with a frame but hell I dunno. I gave it away (i needed axle) the guy wanted the bed mostly. I could try and make a couple calls. E-mail me directly... Skyetone@aol.com

    WOW!!!
    Man, glad your O.K.! That looks like it was a spooky ride.
    Thank Gawd for that B-piller.

    Shame to trash, what looks to be/or was a clean truck.
