Default Another Wrecked Ranger...

Just found out that one of my friends wrecked her ranger today. Really clean yellow 01 EDGE Extended cab 4WD 3.slow.

She swerved to avoid a deer, over-corrected, airborne into a ditch, then snapped the rear passenger axle. She said the diff, driveshaft, and possibly whole axle are shot, and her rims. Not sure how much body damage there is, no pix were supplied. I'm sure the leafs/ shocks are gone too. Her father (who knows quite a bit about cars) says the frame looked fine, so it's fixable.

She went to the ER, but checked out OK, so no major injuries. Just another testimony to how well rangers are built.

How? You listed a bunch of wrecked parts that I would fully expect to be wrecked on any vehicle after such an accident. I don't think it is testimony to anything (except perhaps the decision to swerve instead of brake.)

Still not seeing this as a testimony to anything. Spinning a vehicle off the road into a ditch is not an accident that causes injuries to seatbelted occupants. Any vehicle and occupant would walk away from that in one piece. She mad a poor split second decision and broke the truck. That's about all it amounts to.

I'm just saying, I don't think there is anything incredible about this. Yeah it's great when someone actually gets in a bad crash and can walk away mostly unharmed because the truck held up. But really, spinning out into a ditch?

And yes, it's monday and I want to go back to bed.

Because she thinks its a bunch of creepy old guys that want to see pictures of her and her truck. She also HATES when anyone gives her any suggestions as to what to do to her truck. (But she is fully willing to put her full dollars worth of input in when she doesn't like something about someones ranger. ) she yelld at me last night for telling her she should throw some 33's on 15" black rims on it when she gets it fixed up. "I dont need people telling me what to do to my truck. I have my own style and don't need anyones help." And she wonders. Why we broke up lol.

If you've seen all of the rangers that have been wrecked lately, and no one has been injured, a few of them (including mine) were rollovers. In other cars, there would have been injuries. And i didn't mention, she did brake but that wasn't enough to keep from hitting the deer. She was probably speeding knowing her lol.
