Several members have had damage lately,of which I expressed condolences.Saturday morning I took my grandson to his soccer game.I heard someone holler"whose cruiser is this"
Saw a truck pulling a trailer wwith a bunch of bbq'ers on it.I hollerd back I 'll move it if you need room.His reply...

TOO LATE[xx(][xx(][xx(]
Trailer fender caught the edge of the rear bumper and ripped it all the way off.Cracked taillight,2 gouges the length of the hatch.[xx(][xx(]Any idea if a roll pan and aftermarket lights are anywhere near the cost of oem replacement parts?Might be a good time to do a few mods.

Oh,and did I mention [xx(][xx(][xx(]

As one of those who also had damages, I have empathy for your pain. at least you should get your deductible back from their insurance - damn deer didn't have insurance.[xx(]

Sorry to hear of your misadventure. I'll bet the keys on your computer will be burning up finding out if the insurance will be close to mods. This goes back to the parking lot forum Where do you park I started. Sounds like you borrowed my neon sign " HERE"S MY PT" Again That's a shame.

I'm pretty sure the deer is covered under your comprehesive insurance and not your collision which I think in the longrun won't make your insurance go up. That's only a guess though [:I]

I would have beat the money out of the truck driver.

I would have gotten the, how am I driving #, and company name off the truck and hollerd at them about them paying for it. Hope you did that.

Keep you up on the news and how you get it fixed.
