It always sucks to take care of your stuff for no one else to care or have any regard for you or your truck. Glad you are ok, metal can be fixed

That was a hard hit. Glad you're OK. Trucks can be replaced people can't. Hoping it all works out for you.

2012 1500 Crew Cab, black sport wheels, black running boards, debadged, blacked out lights with a complete LED conversion inside and out, short ram intake, black ram emblems, blacked out a/c vents, and radio bezel, Purolator boss filter and Castrol Edge, Exxon 89 gas ever fill up.

Thanks for all the well wishes fellas. Yeah, it's just metal that can be fixed. Both of us walked away so that's the important part.

The body shop guy said that they have equipment to fix frames nowadays so they are not as quick to total vehicles in many cases. According to him, trucks are easier to fix since the frame is partially exposed and they will remove the bed to make it easier. The fella who hit me however - I'm betting his truck is totaled. I counted at least 3 different fluids spilling on the ground while the cop was taking our statements.

I will keep you guys posted as best I can.

The question was "What is a Hemi?". Back in the old muscle car days when guys were arguing over Fords and Chevys, a Hemi is what you ended the arguments with...

I like that. What are they called?

OP, glad everyone is ok. Incidents like this are one of the reasons I got rid of my Charger SRT8 and into a 2500. I cringe to think how badly things may have turned out if you were driving a smaller vehicle.

I think you should make the GMC joke. Not only is he at fault, but his truck couldn't drive to the body shop I'd bet.

I'd rather push a RAM than suffer with anything Gimmy-built

They replace the frames allot any more. It's hard to get one totaled out. Friend mine had the frame replaced on his 08 silverado.
