    I was on my way to work today and stoped in traffic in a school zone. Looked up in my mirror and there it was, a lady looking down at her phone texting. It dosnt look as bad in photos as it does in person. But it damaged all 3 pieces of the rear bumper the hitch and the tailgate. After the police showed up and got both of our drivers license and insurence info. I was on my way and the police officer stayed with the lady because her car was unable to be driven and needed towed. About 2 hours later I got a phone call from the police officer that said he was finishing the report and called to confirm the insurance of both parties involved and discovered that her insurance had lapsed. thats F#@*ING AWESOME!!!!!! The stupid B**** drives without insurance, tears up my truck now I'm stuck paying the deductible and claiming it to my insurance with the hope that my insurence can go after her in court and I can get reimbursed for the deductible. The only good thing is her license is now suspended and she is going to have to pay out of pocket to fix her car and pay fines and court cost.

    Ouch! Not-at-fault accidents are the worst with having to deal with your insurance in a situation like this!

    That sucks man. Hope you can get it fixed up quick. Good time to upgrade the rear bumper to a beefier offroad one.

    She'll still drive on suspended / revoked ...

    How long of a lapse?

    I was rear ended at a dead stop on the freeway back in Sept...well, I was the 2nd one to be hit. (All fixed now)

    Hit the truck, and my feelers :(

    I would opt to get a heavy duty bumper also (front and rear). But when I had my little accident, my insurance company only allowed factory replacements, since I was still paying for the truck.

    Too bad about your truck, that stinks. I hope you get it squared away without pulling too much of your hair.
    I blame the phone. I hate friggin cell phones.

    Sorry to hear brother, that sucks. At least you didn't get hurt. I know, its easy for me to say, but it could have been worse.

    The truck will be looking back to normal in no time!

    I'm going to order new tailgate and bumper tomorrow, I'm also going to get a set of fender flares while I'm at it.

    I will post pics as soon as it's done, it will probably be a week or so. And sense I will have the fender flares and bumper when it's time to replace tires I'm going to do a lift and larger tires

    My tailgate showed up as well as my fender flares, now I'm just waiting on my fab fours bumper. I'm going to do a 3+2 leveling kit trying to decide on 295/70/18 or 305/70/188 with 1.25 spacers on stock wheels. What tire size should I go with

    Just a few, more to come
    I like my 295's but wouldnt mind a full 35. Problem was that tire shops didnt want to mount the larger tires as the stock wheels were too narrow for the tire fit specs. Most of the 35x12.50s and the 305's required at least an 8.5" wide wheel and they wouldnt budge on installing on out-of-spec wheels. :annoyed:
    I was forced to stick with the 295's unless I dropped another $600-1000 on some 18x9 aftermarket wheels.

    Thats the exact issue I had and had to suck it up...technically, you can fit them...but most tire shops wont do it if it isnt remedied as 'safe' from their policies. You can try Duratracs on a 17" wheel (TRD) like @csuviper has...it may be a cheaper option.

    I had Toyo OC- great aggressive looking tire, but I wasn't impressed how loud they were in the rain, or the under performance (IMO) in the snow and ice...maybe I expected too much, who knows.

    315/70R17 Diratracs are what I put on. They spec 8.5" wheel min but discount tire didn't say anything. I purchased from them and they installed.
