Default Dropped the truck today...

No, I mean, it really dropped. I had it jacked up on my shit ass 2 ton hydraulic jack and it slipped off. Had my jackstand under the fender like a dumb ass and fucked that all up too. My pride has taken a beating today, but i got it pounded back in and it looks fairly straight. The wheel didn't take too much damage either, just a couple scuffs on the lip.

Lesson learned: Don't trust a jack, always use jackstands.... correctly.

Yeah, it's definitely not as bad as it could be. I had to replace that fender anyway, it was dented and the clear was cloudy. Oh well, I think of it as just giving me a push to get a new fender, haha.

Yeah, tell me about it. I have the feeling it's from the rubberized undercoating I sprayed on the beams a couple days back.
