More updates! More minor details, but good stuff nonetheless!

Some painted wheels and I took a little trip with a small trailer (only 62 miles but its the longest "pull" so far)

The future of the dually hangs in limbo..... It may be totaled. Someone ran a red light and I t-boned them. I'll keep the build updated with what happens. Thank you to all who followed along thus far.

I only have a couple cell phone pics in the dark. I'm getting better pics tomorrow for my records since I had to take the day off of work to get stuff for school anyway. Time will tell what the outcome is....

Daylight pictures....... I'm almost 100% sure it will be totaled. There is major frame damage.
Icing on the cake.... The other ******* claims it was my fault. Good thinkg there were witnesses and the Sheriff told me that the report states that HE ran the light. I was the 2nd one through the intersection when he came through.



This is looking straight down the frame, well SHOULD be straight down the frame.

Glad you're okay, but that sucks about your truck. I love trucks like that in good shape like you had it in. Hope everything works out.

I know.... I'm a little heartbroken about losing an old school gem. Straight body, 99% rust free and only 59,000 miles. Now.... a pile of bent frame, ****ed up scrap metal.

Thanks man, It could have been A LOT worse. Both of us walked away and without any injuries.

Now I just hope his insurance company doesn't try to injure my pocket hahaha.
