Im just glad the tire didnt come off a bit earlier, otherwise it wouldve hit the gas pumps I was standing next to, or me.

How does that now work with UPS? they dont get all pissy at you or ding you for it, do they?
Sent those photos to my boss, and explained what happened. Not my fault, so no worries. 34 yrs safe driving still intact.....

Oh yeah, Ken....if it had hit the door, the truck wouldve been down while parts were ordered.

Joe, we've had a rash of Tier3 crashes (intersections) in Michigan this past year. Some of these hits would curdle your blood if you saw the pics. Last fall, one of my coworkers was heavily distracted at the end of his day, and ran a stop sign at 55mph, T-boning a brand new Silverado. Threw the Silvy into a tree, bending the truck in half. Rear axle was found 100 feet away, and one of the rear tires flew about 50 yds into a house. The only body panel NOT damaged was the drivers door, and the man somehow survived. Our truck's front end was completely destroyed, and the drivetrain broke from its mounts and was forced back about three feet. Bent the driveshaft like a pretzel. I have no idea how our driver walked away from the hit, it was that bad.

Shit haven’t been on here in forever! Doesn’t look like this thread has had a lot of attention. I just finished this bitchin shower. They are 5’x10’ pieces of porcelain, all mitered corners and zero entry shower. Was a fun one!

Love that color with the veins running through. I wish I had found something like that when I did my countertops 3 months ago. Nice work

Finally have a good work day to share. Spent the day tuning and testing a customers 4yr Dmax boat build on the Snake river.
A little 550hp engine Mark and I dyno'd long ago in the old barn. Owner actually had it together for about a year, then she split a M race cast last summer for no good reaaon. So he slapped some oval bowls in it, and I caught a plane to Idaho to go for a ride.

Next spring I'm coming back to play on some rapids...

Looks like a nice setup!

We have a farm on the Snake river. When you come back to Idaho, boat on up and we'll feed you all the homemade desserts you can handle.

New drop box for the town I deliver to, freshly painted and decals put on. Ready to install next week. :)
I lost my drop location 6 months ago due to an out-of-towner complaint, so had to come up with a new idea.
Happened to find this box online in the size I needed, so it was an easy call.

So about that drop box I installed on the route a couple months ago....

HOLEEEE SHIOT! I never knew a small rural area needed to send back so much stuff! :ROFLMAO: Seriously, I'm averaging 20 packages/day out of the thing!
Who knew?
