Definitely almost hitting a deer north of town, slammed the brakes to the point i locked them and left a skid mark on the road. Lets just say, it was fucking close.

Another time was this past Monday, was out in the country taking my friend home who lives on a gravel road. Was on my way home when the freezing drizzle started so the road was getting slick. I went to turn on the blacktop which of course had hills on both sides so cars could just pop up. I gently hit the gas and sit there on gravel/snow/ice and spin. Finally get out on blacktop, hardly touch the skinny pedal, and the ass end whips around on me. Fishtailed for about 30-40ft and got some traction. I drove home pretty slow.

Over $2000 in damage.

I learned my lesson about fiberglass beds and needing to put weight in the bed in the winter...

Black guy in a BMW cut me off on the freeway causing me to almost hit the median and then almost hit a Chevy impala. Shit was real.

In '06 I was going to another job site, in this section of road there is a very sharp right turn that is slopped downhill. It was raining that day and when I put on the brakes for the corner my front tires locked up. Slide right thru the intersection and hit a van, the van swerved and hit a Tahoe. No one was ticketed, No one was hurt. It was about a 5mph crash. My truck had small damage on the hood, fender, bumper, headlight. Got an insurance check for $1,500 and bought a 2000 front clip to put on it. All together cost me about 1,200 for the new clip with paint.

Thats a rough road to drive on, people get crazy on it.

My moment I was headed to my girlfriends house last Feb. It had been snowing and I still had the factory goodyears that were 9 years old at the time, went to make the sharp corner near her driveway and the truck decided to keep heading straight into a ditch(4x4 on) where there was a tree stump conveniently placed. Broke the lower valance I had just replaced, mashed up the bumper, and busted the A/C condenser and radiator. I wasn't but about 100 yds. from her house. The next day I bought the BFG A/T's and DC-1s.

last thursday i was heading through stroudsburg on my way home from work, pulled a double shift so i had been up for 22 hours straight at that point, loads of last minute christmas shopping retards out, and some dipsh*t in a camry in the oncoming lane decides he cant wait for the red light in his direction and noses into my lane and heads straight at me. i was moving along pretty good, the road was very bumpy so the truck was bouncing more than it was stopping. luckaly i didint hit the ******* and scince his lane closed up i forced him to back down the road for 3 blocks 'till he could pull off.....


2nd best was coming home im driving up the mountian about 2 miles from my house, and some lady in a minivan heading down decides to cut the corner entirely in my lane, i had to drive off the road to avoid her, had my arm out the window and SWEAR i felt her mirror brush my arm, i have no idea how she didint wipe out the truck.... best part is she had 4-5 kids in the van with her to drop off at the bus stop.
