    Traveling I-4 in FL to gamble in Tampa. Traffic goes from 90-stopped, no warning. I get the truck stopped but I knew it was coming…BAM. Old man hits me going at least 25 screeching tires. I get out throwing F-bombs like shrimp at a hibachi, he gets out praying. Bumper destroyed, tailgate destroyed, trailer hitch pushed in, exhaust knocked loose and fractured. His sh#*tbox is destroyed.

    That sucks man. Glad you’re ok to toss shrimp on the hibachi.

    It doesn’t look bad, but if the hitch is pushed in….

    Well that sure ain’t something to be thankful for, except that no one got hurt.
    Caved in hitch probably means frame damage…

    I didn’t think FL traffic was that bad, even during spring break this year. Then again, maybe we were lucky…or just used to craptastic traffic.
