WAS STOPPED AT A LIGHT THE OTHER DAY, SAW IN MY REAR VIEW MIRROR THAT A GUY WAS BEARING DOWN ON ME AND COULDN'T STOP, I BRACED FOR THE IMPACT GOT SLAMMED ON MY REAR PASS. SIDE. EXPECTED TO GET OUT AND SEE THE TRUCK FOLDED AT THE REAR BUT WAS SURPRISED TO SEE THAT THE REAR BUMPER WAS BENT A LITTTLE. LOOKED AT THE GUYS CAR IT WAS TOTALED.

    Welcome to CK5!
    Trucks are great. Be sure to go and have the frame checked. Sometimes damage isn't apparent to the eye. A good body shop can get the demensions to key points and check it pretty quick. Be sure to keep the receipts and submit it to the other guys insurance when you get them to replace the bumper. Heck let a body shop replace the bumper and let them deal with the insurance company.
    A tip. Typing in all caps is known as "Screaming" in cyber world. It's like raising your voice to get your point across.
    It's also hard to read. Take that pinky on your left hand and click off the Caps lock.


    It's not my damn planet monkey boy!

    I hit an S10 head on the other day because he was driving on the wrong side of the road. Totaled his truck, only some red paint on mine. Destroyed his fender, core support, radiator, air conditioning condensor, inner fender, fan, grille, and bumper cover as little as I could see. Oh yeah, headlight and bezel too. It is probably totalled, as it was a '93.
