    well i was at my dads farm and was going to move one of his trailers no big deal, the only problem was i let my dad drive me truck. missed the hitched and got a nice dent on my back left quarter panel and it pushed my bumper back into the body so theres a chip sucks but i kinda laughed its really the only thing you can do. later i decided to celebrate saint patricks day over at south street oven and grill were my buddy was playing. drank alot of beer had a lot of fun well went to my truck to grab my house key( i was getting a ride wasn't plan on driving) and notice another mother fucken huge dent on my truck on my right back right quarter panel. man i wass pissed it was bassically a hit in run by some stupid fucken drunk driver. the scratches on the front by the fog light was from me and a trail that didn't like me to much, but it sucks cause you try so hard to avoid these things and just that one shitty day sucks ass. sorry for the long post but i just had to vent. and now time for some pics YIPPIE!!!! If anyone else has pictures of there dents or scratches feel free to post them.

    I felt your pain here Pal-the upside is the "jinxies" got knocked away fom your rig with those hits. I'm a firm believer that in this world of "shit happens" you and your truck will be ok now! Get her fixed and enjoy NO MORE JINXIES!!!!!!!!! Believe in it

    thank you well im getting paid next week and should have some overtime on my check i was wonder what those parts would be called so i can order them online, i was thinking about going to collision place but theyll charge me up the ass for the parts, i figured if i ordered the parts it would be cheaper, makes sense right? any suggestions?

    Take it to a collision place for a repair quote. They should give you a printout of what they would repair/replace. Use that for reference.

    the leading minor of order 1 is not positive definite.
    nice call on the supercharger, man! you can pay $2500 in body work but she could get banged up again the next day. but once you put on a s/c you get more horses till the day she dies!

    2500 isn't enough for a supercharger. You'll probably need another 2000 for the install and parts.

    I agree with Iso--that particular mod cost almost as much as a friggin engine!!!! Just one opinion; what would you rather have- a cherry nice looking truck again (it IS practically new still) that EVERYONE will see, or a supercharger under the hood that NOBODY sees until you get on it and then all ya get is 1 or 2 "wow cools" and a whole crapload of "whatevers"..not to mention can YOU live with the site of that damage every time you look at it? I'm just saying all this 'cause it really hurt ya at first and we were all with ya on that. Anyway--just one school of thought for you to chew on

    well i did alot of thinking, this truck is a keeper. it will get fixed no matter what. when i talked to the estimater that was his first question, if i was going to keep it or not. since its comestic and theres a couple of other bangs on her it would be difficult to put it on an insurance claim and would have to pay out of the pocket. then did some searching and found a good deal on a supercharger, i would hate to pass it up.
