Just for documentary purposes I'm also posting these pics in this thread:

Washed the truck so i could get a better idea of damages.

As previously stated, at least 90% of it will buff out.

The hood bracing underneath separated from the skin so the hood is trashed, and i'm just going to leave the dent in the roof until i need a windshield.


The majority of the damage is to the front suspension, and frame, which was useless for me to take pictures of because its not going to be visible through pictures and such.

But heres the exterior:













I had an 'oops', that's all that will be discussed amongst the forum.

Yeah it doesn't look as bad now that it is all washed. Well at least IMHO.

I would agree, the body is the least of my concerns at this point.

After driving it a little, its all of the front suspension, frame, and bumper that I'm worried about.

I've already got a new mirror, and poly control arm bushings on order.

Trying to decide if i want to spend the $400 @ trdparts4u to get all new OEM Toyota tie rods/boots, or if i just want to go moog via carquest.

That would likely jack his rates for years, plus he would still have to pay the deductable.

if it wear me with his skills i wouldnt go through insurance... that'll friggen screw with your rates for years!!! lol

nate... i dont know how you did it, but one day i hope to find out just so i could avoid whatever mistake it was you made... but dude i gotta say from just the pics it looks like someone forgot to set the e brake got out and it rolled down the hill! lol

if im right you can delete that part!

sucks about all the damage man! but on the bright side, the paint is still shiny and we all know now, no to buy an all pro bumper! unless the compression of the bumper kept the bags from going off.

i love a good guessing game!

sooooo whens the sas? or sale of this for a new rig?

Sorry ben, your wrong lol... I was very much so in my truck when this happened.

Bumper saved the bags im sure, bags didnt deploy.


Thought about insurance, we'll see. I WILL claim it if the subframe or anything major on the frame itself is bent, as that'll be pricey and it'll pay for a solid axle if i cash out on it lol.

Actually the story wont leak, because after this weekend and seeing the other groups up there, i doubt HC will be around another 2 years at most. I'm not going to contribute to that.

I will say, i was not being irresponsible, merely mechanical failure resulted in such a manner.

The difference, is i didn't have 4 people standing around going "your hitting your radiator" over and over

I'm over it. Are you?

So you're saying that the people that witnessed this won't say anything for the sake of keeping the trail open? Fine, it may not be discussed on the forum, but I have a feeling a lot of us will know.

Why would I be stuck on it in the first place? Wasnt my radiator

Thats fine.

I'm not saying what happened will close the trail because of me, but it just gives the greenies something else to use as a tool for their army.

The gist of it is, brake failure and i slid off the road. Pretty cut and dry.

However, not too sure why you want to know so bad, guess you should of gone eh?

The road Nate slid off on because of brake failure (and it was obvious his brakes failed, wasn't even holy cross . It was a county road (Missouri Creek) after HC - so he can legally claim insurance.

It was just so sad this happened to Nate after a tough day CV wise for him. He never asked for it and had a random (yet it has happened) brake failure. It sucked and for those of you who keep rubber necking (or asking )- We were all SO glad he was fine after seeing the crash. It was horrible. So stop asking OK? If Nate wants to talk about it he will.

To top it off, I see swirl marks again! Damn, you just can't catch a break!



EDIT you know I'm kidding. Like I said the other day, if/when you want help re-welding up that bumper, let me know.

Meh.

Thats where I'm at with it now.


Fucking meh.

lol


EDIT for your EDIT:
I know your just givin me shit haha, I'll probably be taking you up on the bumper after i get all of the alignment/brake stuff figured out and the trucks driveable again.

I think i'll be going with moog stuff. I was going to get all new inner/outer TRE's through TRDPARTS4U but that's going to run me $400 so i think i'm passing on that.

however, i ordered a new mirror, and poly control arm bushings today.

Damn Nate! Your truck looks a little like mine now

Im sorry to hear you had some shitty luck.

That crap has been going around a lot.

Hell over the last couple of days i have contemplated about just saying fuck it and parting out my truck. The poor thing went from a nice looking truck to a non steering rasin in two freeking weeks. Oh fucking well build it break it and then just break the fucking thing again!



Anyways,

Dont you have another DD? If so, i have heard you mention it, why dont you just start working up to the swap instead of spending 400$ bucks on parts that will first break and then need to be taken off anyway?

Shitty run of luck going around indeed! Wheeling gods are out to get us! lmao.

The truck is actually my true DD, even when the car is running.

But hey, if you decide to part your truck out, let me know. I can think of some running gear that would look mighty tasty under another black truck i know of!

And shit $3500 +


It'll get a straight axle somtime in the next couple of years, but right now is not the appropriate time financially for me to be doing so. Unfortunately, it'll have to wait. Although, I am slowly collecting parts here and there.

have to buy/do all of the following:
dual cases, tranny, gussets, built 3rd (locked, geared, etc.), longfields, rotated knuckles, gussets, bearings, seals, hubs, brakes, alcan leafs (f/r), shackles(f/r), shocks(f/r), shock hoops, ifs box, frame plates, hysteer, etc. etc.

I've ran the #'s a few times on the way i want things done, and it's roughly $3500-$4000 which doesnt even touch wheels/tires after its swapped. Just the 3rd alone is roughly $1500 after an arb if i go that route, i could save some money and just lunchbox it again but i'm kind of over the non selectable front.


To me it makes absolutely no sense to just put a stock toy axle under the front of my truck. Just my though.
