Some ass hat thought it was a good idea to ram through his snow bank rather than shovel it. He backed up as far as he could and let it rip. The thing was he lives on a four lane major city street. Well when he came through, who was there to catch the stupidity..... me. Trying to avoid him and come to a stop and not hit anyone in on coming traffic. My chevy got busted up a bit. Before the air bag could deflat, i was already in reverse, swearing up a storm! I chased this idiot for a block before i had to call it off. Fearing an overheated motor.
It actually looks worse than it is. Broken fan, small crack in the rad. And the airbag. It cosmetics. Should just buff out I'd think.
I'll have it back together in a few days. Just finished ordering parts.

A sawzall and a comealong can do wonders, but I don't know. Friend of mine had a Toyota that tried to wrap around a pole. Looked similar to yours. Insurance totaled it.

At least you had that bull bar on there, or it would have been a lot worse.

I joke.

Seriously though, sorry to see that happen to your truck.

Well after alot of banging and alot of swearing. She's ready for the road. I bought a Canyon grille just to change it up. I'll overlay it with a bowtie. All and all I still love this truck!
Somebody give this man a medal.
