      Damn that sucks. But thankfully you were able to walk away.

        That hurts. Such a beautiful truck. Helping a friend! So glad you're OK.

        Was it like a slow motion roll, as you were going through it? That's what people so often say.

        I didn't put the studs on my van this year, don't know why, but this is a reminder.

        How'd the trailer come out? Was the car on it?

          Nope it definitely wasn’t slow motion. It happened quick and was over quick…..

        Wow!! Yeah that black ice will hunt you down if you're not careful. Brad_G said it. I've seen too many four wheelers and semi's taking ditch naps this year...... Even though they've salted the roads like a tortilla chip. Thanks to whoever is looking out for you

          Glad you're okay Aaron. Were you towing the other car on a trailer or just using a rope or chain? What happened to the other car? Said he was towing a friend for some reason it wrong

            Yes I was towing a buddies el Camino over to madras. His car was on a trailer I’ll post a few pics of it. Took my stinger and bent it at the ball 45 degrees

              I'm glad you are OK Aaron and walked away with only bruises and scratches. It looks like your pick up didn't do so well. Sorry to hear.

                    Well luckily I put uhaul insurance on it so probably nothing but who knows….plus my full coverage should cover everything.

                    Wow that is one wicked crunch…glad you had your belt would of been a different scenario if it didn't hold you in place. Too many of my friends were ejected from vehicles with no belt on. You are one lucky guy all I have to say. Rest up and hope you feel better.

                      Will you be looking to replace your truck with one similar? With the shortage of vehicles (or if you can find them the $$$) currently I'll be interested to see how your insurance company treats you and your search for it's replacement.

                        Well I kinda took a look for a replacement and ouch. My truck was a 09 F350 Harley Davidson Edition…..I can’t even touch one similar for what I paid for mine not including the upgrades mine had. Mine was tuned and deleted and other things…. I saw a 2010 HDE with none of the upgrades and they wanted about $6k more than what I spent on mine with the upgrades…..sigh

                      Should get TOP DOLLAR for wrecked truck....but hard to replace now.

                      Let us know if your auto insurance covers uhaul trailer....i always wondered about that

                        "Should" being the operative word here. But insurance companies can be difficult. And with the shortage/price of vehicles I don't envy his position.

                          Well based on my all day conversations with insurance, this is my understanding…..1st I did purchase the extra insurance from uhaul. That insurance covers the damage to the trailer 100%. It does not cover the towing of the trailer by the tow company but my insurance covers that. The uhaul coverage does also cover damages to the towed vehicle but only up to a certain amount based on which coverage you purchase. I believe the one I did pays up to $5000 anything more than that my insurance covers…..

                            Don't forget the rental car/truck, if you need one. Hopefully that's covered. I would have been screwed. We never pay for the extra insurance, nor are towed vehicles covered under our policies (we're frugal).

                          We pay tons of money to our insurance company but they have always came through for us. Sure glad you are ok though. Your truck was so sweet too, Just remember they may try to lowball you, and you are within your rights to have an independent appraiser take a look at it.
