This. Probably worked 2000 hours of OT to afford it.

I went over a RR crossing way too fast once and hit the stops on the other side. Thankfully, there was no damage, but that isn't a good feeling/sound.

Way back in the day, I had a Subrau Coupe (this body style, but not a turbo):

One day, I hit the railroad tracks at Nicholson/Brightside (heading towards the river) at about 40 mph. I landed around where the road to the old Silver Moon Cafe came out.

Thankfully, that little car had a tough fricking suspension.

Raptor repairs: $8000

Learning what it feels like to have your teeth knocked through your a-hole by a rapidly inflating airbag: Priceless

He should just drop it off at the dealer for warranty repair.

Do it real early, put the keys in the drop box and leave a note, "rides rough, windows leak, tailgate rattles."

What half plausible story could you even offer for that damage under comprehensive?

tow to a rail road crossing, push it onto the tracks when a train comes, claim it stalled.

Well I guess I am the only one who noticed how well the weight was balanced on that truck. Stayed pretty damn flat the whole way. Most other vehicles would just nose-dive and flip end over end

Surely he must've had additional weight in the bed.

I think the added weight of the passenger put the right tilt on it, that's the definition of buddy fricker

That thing is a POS. I, well my friend was driving my vehicle as I'd had more to drink than him and I couldn't walk well), ramped my S10 Blazer that far and drove it home. It didn't have air bags, so they couldn't deploy...

On the levee in Alexandria driving from the OK Allen bridge to the Rapides Parish Hospital...there was a 'jump' on the levee where a water pipe, I'm guessing, was run over it. 5-8 foot tall, but real steep. Traveling way, way too fast...airborn for an insane amount of time...bounce real hard pretty much on the dirt road, then a few more times as we went down the Atown side of the levee.

two huge dents in the roof of the Blazer
driver's door wouldn't open
the gear selector was messed up. Reverse was somewhere between P and R, and Drive was on N.

My story to my folks...kids sat on my roof to explain the dents up top...I threw my Blazer into Park slowing down from 20 or so at a bonfire to explain the gear selector malfunction...a fatass at said bonfire tried to climb through the window when the door was open to explain the door damage.

Probably should have just said we Dukes of Hazard' the shite out of it, but oh well.

Surprised it has that much pick-up.

you have obviously never been in one. They are crazy. Think accelerates like a Vette.

I thought this also but the landing just makes you say "Damn" to the point you forget about it.

The dumbfrick hit the brakes too as soon as he landed which made it all the worse.

If the insurance company sees that vid: Denied!

His best bet is to hide that sucker somewhere and claim it got stolen.
