Unfortunately I can't get into the details because insurance is still working on it but I rolled my truck.





But with this unfortunate incident, I am able to "upgrade" to a better truck.



Better in that it is a 4x4 and a CM, more room for the kids.

The new truck I purchased sight unseen from Copart.com up in Sacramento. I got it for a good deal.

It was wrecked and salvaged.





It has some front clip damage



With some ghetto body repair I was able to get it really close to spec.





Better





Got some help from my goat



Hood swap and new headlights



Still off by a bit





I ordered fiberglass fenders from McNeil so they should have allow me to work with the damaged clip

I replaced the steering wheel and clock spring





But I am 100% stuck on the passenger side airbag. I have no idea how to remove it.

Also, I noticed that the radio was on in the pics, I assume that means the key was on. Is that a good idea whilst fuking with the airbag system? :eek:
thank you for pointing that out.

safety is my #1 concern so the battery post was removed during the installation of the airbag. but it was re-connected during the removal attempt of the passenger air bag which was already deployed.

I don't get it, your rolled truck looks better shape than the new one?
