Holy $hit! What a dumb move. They ok?

And it looked like they hit the brakes. Who the hell would do that with a semi coming at their rear quarter?

What's the engine you have in your underpowered KW?
C15, set at 475/1650 though 🤦‍♂️

Think he's enjoying his new ride

Holy moly. Glad that you are OK. Hope the same for the idiot that pulled in front of you.

Does this put you out of commission until you get your truck fixed?

No injury’s. She had no excuse for what she did. I’m guessing she saw flashing yellow turn light and just went.

Truck has 11k in damages.

I straitened the bumper out, zip tie stitched the fender together, and put in a new headlight bucket to get it driveable.

Not sure exactly what the plan is. If i can salvage the hood, that should put a good bit a coin in my pocket to do other things...
As much as I don’t want to cover up the front of the truck, I think it’s going to get a Dakota hills bumper.

Zip ties and super glue.



Zip ties removed and working on hot stapling it all. Curious if these will hold or not.

Hate seeing the truck all smashed up, but i guess it is what it is. Trucks can be fixed. Hope the girl learns a hard lesson and maybe passes that lesson on to friends. People don’t take driving seriously anymore, when realistically it’s the most likely thing to kill them.

Yea, if I had to guess it'd be about this time next year as long as she makes it there 🤣
Fire ringed head, IPD has some things in testing right now for liners that I'd like to see the outcome of. Drop to 16.1 compression either way, considered 17.1 but 🤷‍♂️ Bigger injectors and and an S400 series turbo, just not positive on size yet. Even so I might just pull the turbo from the freightliner and swap it back to a 1.58 exh housing and try that. 80mm S430sx.
