    While waiting for the car infront of me to make a left, i waited stoped for 10 sec and then some bitch rearended me with out hitting her brakes. Pushed me into the car infront of me. I was ok very sore, and my 4 year old was fine too, he just asked what happened.

    Damage: front bumper., rear bumper and hitch bent under truck and it bent the frame where the bunper and hitch ataches too. If you look in my bed it buckled and the bed is cracked because its composite.

    What a pain in my ass. Mt mint 06 is down for the count till it gets fixed.

    if yo look at truck there is a small hole in front bumber, and rear is bent down, only looks like the bumper in back needs replacing but it did major fram damage, talk about a supper light dudy frame, they bend and fold like a prettzle!!

    Usually they are meant to- it's better than super rigid and transferring the shock into the cab. The passenger cage is usually very rigid.

    Glad you are ok...Let us know how the truck makes out!!

    Driving in Boston is like taking your life into your own hands! Glad you guys are okay. Could be a great chance to upgrade the bumper. Go Red Sox!

    Glad to hear you and your 4 yr. old are okay. Does the insurance company claim the truck a total wreck because of the bent frame? Or can they fix it.

    My friend has a prerunner. he had just bought his truck a few months before he had his wreck. he ended up with like $18,000 in damage. the insurance company fixed it. they ended up putting a new frame under it straight from japan. it was in the shop for a couple months
