    yeah, grim, how about them pics?? i have seen it though, and will say that it aint pretty. thats the only thing i hate about k5's, is the fact that almost all side damage behind the door is hard to fix. not like a p/u where you can replace a bed side.

    Took pictures but not developed and scanned yet (still to cheap to buy a digital camera).
    It's mostly beat out. The fender lip took a beating and still in about a 1 inch. Jammed a flat basket ball up into the fender to pop it out then hammer and dolly where I could. Fiannaly got a tail light reflector but haven't had a chance to put it in. Righ now the tail light is duck taped.

    I'd think a porta-power would do well inside the fenderwell...mind you they normally run more than a digi-cam.[​IMG] I'm too cheap to buy one too.

    200 mph tape is the ultimate fix-all! I guess the insurance company wouldn't buy it being 'hit and run' at the mall huh?[​IMG]

    Damn, I should've took a pic of that when I was there. It looked really bad [​IMG]. I mean, If that happened to me, I wouldn't know what to do [​IMG]. That is one serious hard "dent" to fix......gobs and gobs of bondo...lol.

    Collision on a $1 truck...that's funny Rene LOL. I don't want my insurance company to see that truck EVER hehehe.
    Curious to see what my bud with the 79 Bronco did to fix his. It was worse from the same rock. Bent the door frame at the latch and he couldn't get the door to latch and had to Bungy the door for the rest of the weekend.
    It doesn't look so bad know and really wasn't as bad knocking it back out as I thought it would be.

    Oddly enough I have full coverage on mine...the insurance company convinced me to go with full coverage before I left for Texas. It only costs me about $9 a month more so I just left it.

    Too bad I didn't have full coverage when i got rear ended in Portland...I would have gotten paid out for it already.

    FIRE insurance. A great investment to make for only 8 extra bucks a year. (especially considering how many times ive caught my truck on fire.....)
