    little fender bender






    It could have been worse, Highway Patrol said he hit at about 25-30 mph, Thank God it wasnt any worse. Me and the Gentleman driving the truck are perfectly fine. Im very impressed how tough these trucks are. Even the patrolman said that was impressive. Time for a new bumper now :D

    IF you had a hitch you probably wouldn't have any bumper damage. How's your neck? Always go to the doctor, you always feel worse the next day and never know what could be wrong.

    I hit a deer with my 2004. I hit it going about 65mph on a back road and flung the deer about 30 yards. I got out fearing the WORST for my truck but only found a small dent and cracked grill. Unbelievable! I watched the deer convulse for a minute or so, yelled at him for scaring the shit out of me, then got back in and drove away.
    Got a $500 check from the insurance company that I pocketed. Dealer never even saw the dent during trade in.

    Slid out on ice last year and took out a mailbox (on a 4x4 pole) and a tree (about 6" in diameter). It hit both at the same time using the SIDE of my truck. I saw the mailbox w/ post fly into the yard and watched the tree fall over. Got out fearing the WORST but only had a broken bead lock on my tire (re-inflated and it was fine) and a small dent above the rear wheel well.
    Never turned it in to insurance and replaced the mailbox on my own.

    Yes...these are tough trucks! I'm sorry to say but I don't think my 2009 would stand up to those same forces. If it was a bit bigger, I would still have my 2004.

    from the back pic. it looks like you can loosen the bolts on the bumper and the bumper brackets and adjust it a little but the side pic. looks twisted a little

    it sheared 2 of the bolts that hold the hitch on and you cant really see it good but it dented my tailgate in on the left side......im hoping they wont give the money to a bodyshop so i can just get a aftermarket bumper, buff out the red paint on my tailgate and maybe buy a front bumper with the rest.......i was looking underneith and the truck went so far under it hit my shackles....do i need to be worried about anything since it bumped my shackles??
