Default T-Boned

Yup...got t-boned in the 80 this morning at Champa and Speer. Lady in a PT Cruiser ran a red light and t-boned me...luckily AFTER I had dropped off the boys. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU John Henley!!!!!!! The welding job you did on my sliders was awesome! The sliders saved the entire right side of my truck...a PT Cruiser hit me at 30 MPH and all I have on that side of my truck is a bent up and scratched slider. Unfortunately a truck was to my left so I have some front fender and bumper damage. Pics soon. But awesome job John, thank you! It is drivable, but i can't open the passenger doors. Should I cut the slider off or try and bend it back down? Oh and Christo, hope you have a ARB bumper in stock!

Nobody was hurt so I guess it is a good day...

Happy to hear nobody was hurt.

I would have the frame inspected just in case. The energy has to go somewhere, hopefully in your case into the Cruiser, the PT Cruiser that is.

X2!!!!! Man my heart sinks just thinking about that.. Glad all is well, and Oleg would be who I'd take it to if you wanted the frame looked at, he's good at that sorta thing.
