Default Sad News, Pepe Is No More!!

Loaned my truck to my daughter and she managed total it. Hydroplaned on the freeway and put it into the jersey barrier and bent the front frame. Impact was so hard it pushed the cab back and sideways into the hinge of the cover which shattered the back window. Insurance did good by me and paid me almost $7K.

Trucks are replaceable, daughters are not. Hope she wasn't badly hurt, and hope she learned a lesson that will serve her well somewhere down the road. Sorry to hear about your truck, though. My wife totaled my '71 Bronco, so I know somewhat how you feel!

Yes, the daughter is fine. Lesson Learned: Unlike a lot of women, Trucks are light in the rear-end!

Paul glad your daughter is safe and sound.Secondly, hope you can find the strength and stamina to start another Ranger project, equal to or better than what you had. Remember, there is someone somewhere, with a diamond in the ruff sitting somewhere down South, waiting for your purchase, to apply what you have learned to it, from what knowledge you have gained on this forum.
