    Well at 25,000 miles my 07 ate it. Spent 17 hours driving down the east coast (shoulda taken 8 hours) to get home after Thanksgiving with the family and ended up getting to bed at 4AM so I could wake up at 5AM and drive to work. I didn't make it to work.

    Passed out behind the wheel. Woke up going off the shoulder prolly doing about 50mph, and took out one of the big one way signs held in by 2 metal posts. Fishtailed out on the shoulder and rolled 2-3 times going back across 2 lanes before coming to rest on the passenger side. I unbuckled myself and climbed up and out the driver's window. People behind me had pulled over and already called 911. Ambulance showed up and since I'm Army property I went to get checked out on post. A sore neck and a couple scratches on my hands and I was discharged. People didn't believe the guy joking in bed 3 was the one that rolled his truck 3 times.

    Life lessons on not sleeping with almost no sleep aside, here are the pics.

    On the bright side, it looks like the suspension and 4 outta 5 wheels are alright. The winch should be fine. The all pro bumper is toast and the snorkel is snapped off. Waiting to hear back from the insurance company but at least I should have parts to drop on the 09 :p

    PS - Yes this is the exact same post from TTORA for anyone who hits both boards.

    Truck doesn't look that bad. You can buff it out & a little bit of duct tape it will be as good as new. :laugh:
