    Attached the Alu Cab Shadow Awning to my load bars yesterday. The mounting holes on the Alu Cab mount didn’t line up perfectly with the holes on the awning, so I had to drill a few holes - argh. This is one well made, strong, convenient awning. A4CD91D7-226B-4915-9948-93DB8CE48C7E.jpgB312578D-F54F-4C10-A33A-F465CE5EF227.jpg

    I'm guessing the cross traffic alert system didn't work or it was late?

    I'm getting the same kit installed in a few weeks. Would you mind sharing a photo after the suspension settled. How do you like it so far?

    …what I see is someone backing out of a parking spot quickly and not looking good enough or at all. Nothing was blocking your view if you had been careful. My first thought at seeing this, is you didn’t look and used the gas pedal. As was said already, he had the right-of-way. It’s on you to proceed ONLY when it’s safe to do so. It wasn’t.

    While he was going kinda quick (far from ‘super fast’), you also just as quickly backed out of that spot. You were on your gas pedal, you should have been on your brake (you weren’t) and idling backwards (assuming automatic). The proper method is to back out slowly just enough to give you a clear view, then proceed if it’s still clear, which you didn’t do. By backing out slowly you give a chance for other peeps to see what you are doing too.

    Sorry for the damage that sucks, but it’s mostly your fault. He had the right of way and he wasn’t going so ungodly fast that you couldn’t have reasonably avoided it.

    Agreed. Assuming that video is at actual speed, the guy driving has the right of way even if he was going a little too fast (Definitely not "Flying.") The guy backing out is actually the one going way too fast in reverse with no hesitation, as in back up a little, look both ways, back up a little more. Imagine a little kid back there.

    Was going to wait for the rears to come in but I don't have a date yet. Plus when I need help everyone is busy I may actually call in sick to do this
    But will definitely take alot of pics

    I appreciate everyone's opinions. It's a parking lot and private property so technically there's no right of way or speed limit. While I love this website sometimes I just can't get over the way people talk and demeanor of some of the members. I'm willing to take half blame. Although I do think he was on his phone and was cutting through the parking lot like I said. Going pretty fast. Whatever terminology suits you guys though. Don't want to ruffle any more feathers.

    I'm definitely not looking to hit a guy while he's down (meaning, you just had damage done to a beautiful truck) but even in a parking lot there is a right of way. I did accident investigation (in New York) for 15 years. The guy driving straight ahead had the right of way. And in New York State, when no speed limit is posted, the unposted speed limit is 30 mph. Again, I'm sorry for your damage. My estimate (assuming it happened in NY) is the insurance company will find you 75% at fault and him 25%. Unless of course you can prove he was distracted, as in on the phone which is illegal in NY.

    So let me ask you this, let's say in a parking lot the person is cutting across parking spots ( like a lot of people do), who's at fault then?

    Just keep in mind it's just people's opinions. Only you and the other driver truly know what occurred ( distraction, speed, etc etc. ). Like you said lesson learned, and as much as it sucks you move on.

    Like someone else said, always back into a parking spot, assume 100% of other drivers are idiots, and as much as we're all careful, accidents do happen.

    Arm chair adjusters be damned. That guy was going way too fast for a parking lot and couldn’t react in time. Maybe you were coming out a little fast, but that was a forceful collision and he was easily doing over 10mph. Just like off-roading, videos never seem to depict things as extreme as they look from the cab.
    Accepting 50% blame and everyone’s opinions with such grace is very mature and noble of you! I never uploaded traffic cam footage of the incident that totaled my 1st gen here even though the other party ran a red, was cited and was found to be at fault by both insurance companies.
    I know myself and would be irate if some hogtroll in a computer chair told me that I wouldn’t have been T-boned if I hadn’t gone through a green light. “yOu sHoULd HaVe lOoKeD lEFt riGhT LeFt!! yOuR oWn FaUlT!”

    I’m sorry your truck is out of commission, but am glad everyone is okay and hope that you’re back on the road soon!

    Whenever people argue whether WeatherTech or husky floor mats are better they are just arguing for second and third place. Also wasn't sure if or when the cabin filter has been changed so I decided to change it. Good thing I did seeing as it was the world's flimsiest cabin filter I've ever seen as well as being pretty dirty.
