    My truck was totaled when I was stopped on the interstate at the beginning of the morning rush hour and someone hit me going over 50 mph and lauched me about 10 feet into the car in front of me. The car that hit me ended up under my truck. Four cars were involved but fortunately no one was seriously injured. Not the way I wanted to have to get a new truck...

    That'll buff out.

    Glad you're OK. Probably going to be sore the next few days. Nice to see the cab totally intact, since you've got the same truck as me.

    Holy chit dude!

    Glad you're okay.

    Forgive me for the dumb question, but I have to ask how did you exit the truck? Looks like a long way down and possibly not stable.

    You can't tell from the pics but my truck is leaning against the car I was launched into (probably kept me from rolling) and I had to climb out my window onto the top of that car and then slid down onto the hood.
