    Any time the son wants to barrow mine its usually something he needs help loading and unloading. Generally to heavy or awkward for one person to handle.
    He has his own truck but not a liftgate. As much as the peabody is in the way its just to useful to get rid of.

    My son has issues with trailers - both times he's messed it up was because of a trailer. First one was jackknifing the trailer while backing up, folded the rear quarter on that one. Next time he dropped the tailgate on the trailer jack, screwed up the trim and the gate a bit too.

    He needs to use the mirrors instead of the back window. That rearview mirror is for checking traffic not backing a trailer.
    Then some trucks just were not built for pulling trailers. The rack and pionion on the 93 dakota was one of them. Has about the same wheel base as the 1 ton but has twice the turn radius. The little car type mirrors are the pits.

    Little old lady must have been driving a tank.

    I hope its a long way off but at what point should one stop driving. Accidents like this make one wonder.

    Other than hurt feeling hope all humans involved faired better.

      Damn Paul! Hope you're fine, as well as the other gal, but she sure did a number on orangy! Some people just shouldn't be driving anymore, I had an old lady pull out in front of me today, saw her s mile away and I was going to be turning, but if I want to at the speed limit, I could've had an accident. Get out the torch and get some supplies from your yard and orangy will be back on the road before you know it!
