After much grinding, drilling, a few hours of frustration and a mild sun burn, I've got my bumper on. Pictures of the progress should be up Sunday night.

Story to go with it as well. As I'm working on my Ex in my parents driveway, I hear a loud noise, and see the top of a palm tree snap off. I cross the cul-de-sac go through the back yard of an unoccupied home, and peak over the back wall. I see a Chevy Silverado smashed up against the tree, air bags deployed, and I don't see a driver. I call for my older brother, and his friend and we hop the wall. We get to the car and find the driver unconscious and bleed, his ass is in the driver seat, and his torso is in the back with an unsecured sub box on top of him(wasn't wearing a seat belt). He comes to and I start talking to him as my bro's friend calls 911. The driver (mid 20's) is bleeding from the mouth and nose can't focus on me, doesn't remember what happened, and looked to have some serious head injuries, as he had clear fluid leaking from his ears. I do my best to keep him calm and in place, and within five minutes PD, FD, and paramedics arrive and take over.

Must admit I'm partial to your MOS. I was at Camp Pendelton in 1968, Hotel 2/27 27th Marines. Where are you stationed at?

I'm not familiar with it, maybe after my time.

Coming home from the Main Divide road in the Ortega Highway my Ex's ass end started sliding out, I attempted to correct, almost brought it back under control, and the rear end slide back out and I hit the wall. The pictures pretty say it all.

On a slightly funny note, the responding CHP officer was a Drill Instructor at MCRD SD when I was a recruit, and knew my Senior Drill Instructor.

I'm alright. All the safety equipment functioned perfectly. Came away with some cuts on my left ear and neck, cuts on my palms. Bruised shoulder and waist, and a sore neck.

That's the plan. Right now I'm looking at this 2000 XLT 4x4. I've got $2,000 need another $2,000. Waiting for my various checks to come in, and selling some crap on ebay.

I may be starting a donation thread. User who donate could get their user names stenciled somewhere on the truck or something...

Holy crap! :eek: Glad you're OK. :thumbsup: I've been on the Ortega Highway many times. I used to take it all the time with my Mustang (fun, fun, fun) when I was going from El Toro to my buddy's house in Temecula. That could have been real, real bad.

You thought I was kidding when I said that God loves a rifleman!

That's the way I've been looking at it.

That it does, she was the first car I've bought myself, and I got quite attached to her. If I do get the second gen I'm looking at, I want to find a way to incorporate some parts from the old Ex into the new one.
