Thumbs down oops

So I was looking for a camping spot in prescott ( next to impossible btw ), and I was going about 25-30 down this trail, as I was slowing down to make a right ( pretty blind turn ), I see this jeep cherokee going about 15-20 coming straight at me going left.

So I immediately slam on brakes, let off turn merge right and I clipped dude because he made no attempt to merge a little left. It was almost a head on collision lol, but thankfully it was only a minor love tap.

I've only had this truck for about a week!

Anyways, no insurance was filed, I'm getting parts at cost + 10% off. Does anyone know how to install the front bumper/fender flare? I'm sure I can do it, but it will take me more time than someone who's done it before lol.

Oh, damage to the jeep was just his fender which I will also be paying for (because I felt it was more my fault EVEN though he said he would probably be doing the same speed on that trail going the direction I was)

I wouldnt ppay for anything for someone who is too lazy to swerve. The way you explained it, sounds like you swerved to miss, and if he had swerved a small amount, the whole thing could have been avoided.

Anyway, sorry to hear about your truck, I'd be so furious if someone hit me in that situation!

It was a blind turn, he just didn't react quick enough, I did. If I didn't would have been a head on collision lol

I would actually recommend popping out out and keeping the bumper in your garage until it's time to return the lease. That way, you will have a brand new bumper and they can't get you for any scratches on it. Also, the bumper comes painted?
