Was woken up this morning by a phone call nobody likes to get......my wife was on her way home from work early this morning after her nightshift and get caught in some black ice after freezing rain last night.

Good news is she is OK....bad news......the truck is gone.

Fire/Rescue had to cut the roof off to get her out.....along with the rest of the damage I don't think shes a fixer-up anymore!

Only 12,000kms. on the clock and a few thousand bucks in upgrades and add-ons.....this is gonna be a fun week with insurance.....

Wish me luck! :(

On the bright side, now is a real good time to buy new, new cars and trucks are not moving well and good deals can be gotten.

Good thing she's okay, right?

Just imagine if she was driving a Prius or something smaller?

Glad you wife is ok. Like everybody said that is the most important thing.

Insurance wise, if they are giving you hassles on paying off the truck....see if you can take some of the mods off to make up the difference. If they are salvageable of course

Thanks for all the replies!

Ya...she is fine...a little sore right now tho!

I have full replacement cost on the truck thru insurance....well worth the $20.00 extra! A lot of the chrome and accessories were thru Dodge and in the final total of the truck....my aftermarket stuff is CAI, exhaust, power wire and scoop, sray-in liner/tonnau cover, stereo etc.

I am heading to the impound yard right now with tools in hand to see what is salvagable....and I got my camera for what isn't too!

I asked her if she wanted to look for something different (all wheel drive SUV or similar)....she said no damn way! She said if the Dodge hellped her walk away from that she wants a new one!

Smart wife you have there. She is well aware that a lesser vehicle could have caused a different outcome that was not in her favor.
