Well i wrecked my truck today :(: it was raining and a (nice kind smart) B#t$# lady thought she had the right of way and turned RIGHT infront of me i was going about 30 and BAMM i nailed her buick. it pushed both passengerside doors in about 6 inches. The roof too. flatten 3 of her tires and parts of her side mirror went through my grille. ALL it did to my RAM was break and right signal cover (didn;t even break the bulb) and pushed the bumper back in pretty good. i dunno it might have messed up some fins on the radiator but nothing major. i drove it home while they both left in the meat wagon. the only thing is my tire rubs the bumper a lil bit on the right side when i turn left. no biggie just bent it back out

i was t-boned in the driver door a few yrs ago. i pulled out in front of a dodge spirit (it was shadowing a big van that was turning where i was at.) BAM did not even see it, and she saw me when i puled out. so at 50 mph without hitting the breaks she plowed me. ythank goodness she was not hurt, but her car was a diffrent story. it fired up enough to get out of the road, but then it was over. as for my baby, it mashed the grey part of the door and busted my nerf bar. so RAM THIS!

I wrecked my truck about a year or so ago (little mazda pickup in the blind spot on pass. side). All I got to say, Sportram, is your lucky. He clipped my front bumper and took it completely off. I have the sport package also and my bumper is cheap cheap cheap!!! Nothing but plastic. I'd hate to hit something head on.

are all the body panels lined up right. is the gap between the door and front fender even all the way up. it would suck if it warped your frame. as long as they are paying for it you ought to have the bodyshop look at it for you.
glad to hear you are O.K

My Dakota has taken the life of a Firebird, Honda Accord and VW Jetta. All T-boned and the Dakota is still going. My Power Ram wiped out a Ford Escort. I hope I'm done. Dodge trucks are very safe, didn't get a bruise or scratch in any of the above.

so did those headlights get "damaged"? i want some of those sport headlights. ill buy them off you if you can work something out. i also say you invest in an aftermarket bumper. take the money and run! but make sure there is no frame damage or body panels pushed into others.

If you put the stock bumper back on the truck I will kill you, you just got $1500 or so for the stock bumper, get a bad ass bumper or die. j/k man you know i like ya.

sorry james none of the headlights got damaged just the right turn signal and all it did was break the lense cover. lol all the lights still work just the bottom fog lights shoot all over the place. I talked to the body shop today about switching bumpers and he said that they are required by law to replace the factory equipment and factory equipment only. (my question is what if u had a renuel or something like that to start with?) oh well just as long as my truck gets fixed SOON (Yeah once they get the part and my truck in the shop it will take a week to get it fixed)
