nope. it's trashed. liners are broken, bottom of the bumper is broken and cracked.

time for the 06/07 front bumper, headlights, LED HID Headlights and Foglights and my front lip to get painted and installed.

glad it happened now and not when I had the new bumper and lip on.

Sorry buddy Were you able to get the truck to stop to take his insurance information? That's always my biggest fear, is that the person responsible won't be held accountable and the cost ends up being out of pocket.

I once was driving behind this work truck who was speeding down the road with a huge trailer attached (massive Bobcat on the trailer) and he lost control because he wasn't paying attention to where he was going (distracted on phone?) Anyhow, he ended up causing the trailer to swerve off the road into someone's yard and completely took out their mailbox (causing it to go FLYYYYYING...like over 100 yards!) About 0.25 miles down the road was a bar which has a huge parking lot and I was sure he was going to stop there to turn around...NOPE. He kept on going like nothing happened! So what did I do...pulled out the phone, snapped a pic of his plate, and called the cops haha! My thought was "Why should my innocent neighbor have to fork out money for a new mailbox because of some irresponsible a$$hole? No...eff that."

unfortunately no. I know it was a Silver Dodge Ram 90's model, extended cab. but the jerk was in front of the guy in front of me, we were all running 75-80 down I-25 just north of the Longmont, CO exit.

I didnt even see it till the guy in front of me swerved wildly. I had no time to react.

Sorry to hear about that.. Colorado drivers are dumb. Always gotta look out for the a$$ that just pulls out in front too, in general, people will swerve or you'll be the unfortunate one to slam on your brakes. I always try and stay in the middle or far left lane if posible. Next thing you know, they go 5-10 under the speed limit... 1/3 of all co motorists are uninsured too.

Here in Texas they just automatically state that you were too close.
Without a camera to prove otherwise most people get screwed on this...


If you sell your old headlights let me know...


I need some lenses for my retrofit headlights.
