    Look at my webshots under k-5 rollover. Dont want any of yall to end up like that. My friend and I came out of it ok, we both had our belts on, but it coulda been a whole helluva lot worse. It happened sunday morning, when some tacoma, slammed his brakes on, on purpose, at a green light, and made me swerve around him and while trying to recover, she rolled once, and landed on all fours. Its real scary rollin at 40 MPH. Hope none of yall ever have to do it. Ive learned so much from this board, now hopefully i can learn how to do a body swap, cause the drivetrain and running gear is still ok. Specially that new 350 we just put in a month ago. Just wanted to let yall see what its like so maybe it could help yall be safer.

    Next time some dumb ass rice driver pulls that crap on ya...ram him hard. Then have him charged for recklessly endangering your life.

    Sorry to hear about the K5...

    Glad to hear everyone came out OK. Did you beat the guy in the other truck once you where upright?

    Looks like its time for the SAWZALL and a Tube Body just get rid of the body and have tub bars everywhere like a sniper. dont hit the ****er cuz then youll be charged with following to close and reckless driving not them all they have to say is there was a Kid out by the road or a dog or a deer or ETC..... just try to brake into a ditch.

    sounds pretty childish, but, if you see his truck again, get his license plate number, Or follow him home, so you know where he lives, but dont get seen, Then find the right time to go over to his house at night, poke a hole in his rear diff, drain the fluid, then forget about it, im sure its spendy to replace the rear diff's in one of those things.

    by the way, if all you can do is get his license plate number, the DMV will give you his address if you give them the license plate number.

    if the guy in the toy left then that is admision of guilt. Find him and he will have to pay for damge done to your K-5 becouse he didnt have to stop and he left the scene of an acident which is as good as admision of guilt.

    Man! glad your ok.
    Keith had a 88 tub for sale compete with interrior before X-Mas. Don't know if he still has it. It was perfect though. Not sure if he has a clip for it and it was sitting on a bent frame.
    I have a 79 for sale. I'm willing to horse trade on it. I wouldn't mind keeping the engine and tranny out of it and working a deal.
    It's in the For sale forum.

    Where did that happen?

    I am glad you are ok as well. From experience, I can tell you that you should not seek vigilante justice, no matter how satisfing it would be. This guy left the scene of a crime when he ran. If you can track him down to do vigilante justice, then you can give that information over to the police. I ran into a similar situation. I followed the long, drawn out, frustrating legal system. A year after I was pissed and figured I just have just kicked his ass, it did get taken to court. It will cost him the price of a lawyer at a minimum, and if found guilty, will go on his record if this guy has a history of doing this type of thing. Your case would be tried by a DA, or Assistant DA, so it will cost you nothing. If you do something, and get caught, you could end up with a record youself, and the above mentioned price of a lawyer.

    It's not like TV, it is slow, drawn out, un-exciting, but it will definitely catch up with him and cost him much more than a rear axle freezing up on him.

    Grim, it happened over by kennesaw mtn. In front of that bill and loiuses restaurant where the road forks to the right. so left, theres a huge ditch, right theres telephone polls and a restaurant, then back left there was an open field. At least i went into the field. BTW it was a silver Tacoma, new body style with 3 or four stickers in the back window, mostly on the left side, and there was one in the bottom left corner, that was about 4 inches square, and predominantly red. It was also the kind that sits up a lil higher from the factory, just in case anyone on here is from around the kennesaw/acworth area.

    Right up the road from me. I live off Chastain. Keith off 92 and 61.
    I thought I had seen your truck before when I was looking in your webshots.
    Looked at those pictures again and unless the truck is sitting on something so it's not level I think the frame is tweeked.
