I think … it was Mercedes Benz that engineered the first "Crumple Zones" to absorb energy in a crash. That certainly 'crumpled" and absorbed energy to save your butt! That's what we in the car fraternity would call a front end that was "stuffed."
Yeah that longer nose on the 01 did absorb most of the impact , thank god !!!!

Burky, sorry to read of this and wish you a speedy recovery. Also, as well as the gent that was rushed to the hospital. Things can happen when you least expect it.

Heal fast and prosper.

Speedy recovery Tim! Need to keep you in the shop out of harms way.
Yeah … I'm thinking one of those police ankle bracelets and a shock collar tied into a GPS with the new Shop coordinates punched in? :p 😂 ;)

Get well soon Tim! As everybody has said it could have been so much worse!

Hope you dont have to have surgery and its just 6-8 weeks in a cast.

Hopefully he had good insurance and you'll get a nice new truck out of the deal not to mention pain and suffering medical bills etc. Don't let the insurance co short change you!

Good to hear that you're still kicking and able to post! It's a bummer but you are very fortunate. Trucks don't have the crush zones that cars have meant to add some time to deceleration of a collision. You'll be 100% before hunting! That's the good news!
