Default a ranger obituary :(

So me and my buddy were busy last night giving everyone rides home from the bar/parties like we do every year to keep people safe.

My buddy was on his way to pick someone up in portland when (go figure) a stupid drunk cut him off on an icy road. He hit a big patch of ice and went into an embankment and rolled his ranger.

Thank god for looking over him because he was not injured. Keep in mind he's 6'7"

I'm sooooo thankful because it could have been alot worse. I've lost too many friends these last few years and to see one of my very best friends who's on a full football scholarship and who just got engaged lose his life would have been life changing to say the least

here's the damage



Unfortunately it's totalled. and his canopy may have actually helped to some extent.
Don't fill this thread with stupid " any way i can get xxxx part..." crap. He's planning on getting another ranger

Just a reminder to drive safe people! And remember life is short. This wasn't driver error or stupidity just bad luck

yeah how he made it out with no injuries is beyond me

looks like he'll be getting a 4k check from insurance though so finding another decent ranger shoudn't be too hard!

We just have to pull my stock seats back out of it lol. should be interesting considering...

It could have been worse. That's the only way to look at accidents. But if everybody died or were seriously handicapped you can't really say that. Hey nobody plans on being in an accident. Let us know how he does with another Ranger please. Wish the best outcome!!!!

Glad you guys were doing your part keeping people safe... If he would have been under the influence is reaction would probably have made the outcome worse.

Glad he's okay but it just sucks that stuff like this has to happen to good people because someone is willing to spend $100 at a bar but not $20 on a cab.

BUILT FORD TOUGH!!
This is just one of many roll overs in a ranger that I have heard of and everybody involved has walked away.

These are some tough little trucks!
