    So, there I was on a closed gravel road with a guy behind me pulling a long trailer. So, before I go to make my three point U-turn I pull to the side of the road on some tall wet grass to let the guy behind pass. Next thing I know, the front right tire slips and into a 5 foot ditch I go.

    Now the part that really grinds my gears. I call a tow truck after my buddy's 4Runner just spins all four trying to pull me out. He decides to pull me out from the rear axle. Good call, until he tilts the roll back up and drags his chains on my perfectly good rear bumper scratching it and denting it. So, I'm a little upset that I paid $100 for a 20 foot tow and a damaged bumper.:mad:

    So my girl looks like she took a nice left hook in a bar fight, and now I'm done ranting.

    Thanks for letting me vent!

    lol, I wasn't even mad about the front fender, because at the end of the day she is a truck and I don't plan to make her a mall crawler so I knew a little off road damage would happen eventually, I'm just more mad that I paid a guy to mess up the rear bumper too.

    Remember, YOU are the one who drove the truck into a ditch. Don't get pissed off at the guy trying to help you out and in the process dings up your bumper.

    lol, The BHLM was actually one of the easiest, cheapest, and best mods I did for her so far. It really sets the truck off the way Toyota should have from the factory.

    I think in total, I have $50 and 8 hours invested in the BHLM.

    Maybe I should buying OEM headlights and blacking them out/retorfiting them and sell them for a small profit on here... :rolleyes:
