    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
