    There are no words I can really say... It was a miracle that Ryan (Superlifted06Fx4) and I are still here. My truck landed dead center between a telephone pole and some mailboxes. It was still running when we flipped, I can definitely say, it just goes to show Ford is built tough. The only real damage I could see was the cab and the driver side window on the extended cab was busted. As well as the mirrors. Otherwise, not much damage. Flipped it twice.

    I went to pass someone, saw there was a car coming so I backed off. As I was slowing down, the truck I was gonna pass slowed down next to me so I couldn't get back over. I hit the brakes harder, they locked up, and we flipped.

    sorry to hear glad everyones ok, but locking the brakes is a huge no no, but it was a learning experience everyones ok and maybe it dawned on that other guy that hes and idiot time for a rebuilded rebuild

    Surprisingly, he turned around and came back to help. He said he slowed down to let me pass, but I don't think so. He stuck by my side the entire time. I slowed down more, so did he. I let off the brake, and so did he.

    I didn't even mean to lock up the brakes, I was surprised that they did. But yes, I'm going to go pick it up tomorrow and gonna start rebuilding once more.

  13. I hate people like that... I just usually force my way back over. Yanno, a 5.0 would've prevented this :p Glad to hear you're alright though and that the truck didn't have too much damage!

    I just can't wait to pick it up tomorrow to see the real damage. The towing and storage fees are gonna be what kills me. I'm still irritated at that, I wanted them to just tow it to my house. But no, they wanna screw me in the ass without the considerate lube up.

    It did give me a wake up call though, that's for sure. I'm happy to be alive.

    Sucks when something like that happens, but happy ya'll are okay and the truck suffered minimal damage.

    Question: Why pass in the first place? What were the conditions deeming the need to pass? IDK....I guess I just don't see the reason in it. I never pass on two-lanes unless I'm on a roadtrip and the dude in front is going way behind the pace. I guess it's what happens when you drive for a living you learn to be alot more patient.

    Speaking of driving for a living, they called out a pretty darn stout wrecker AND a flatbed? Flatbed winch woulda been more than sufficient to put her back on all fours. (I'm a tow operator).

    I can ask myself the same question now. The guy in front of me was being a major tool bag, he was going under the speed limit. Then decided to brake check me, I backed off. He decided to go slower, and as I went to pass he sped up. Which led to him copying my every move on trying to back off.

    They called out three trucks, actually. The first one said he couldn't flip it back over, so they called out two more. I did not see the need for it, but I'm sure all they want is money.
