My sister was on her way home after visiting us for X-mas and had an accident in my old 93 D250 . She hit some black ice in the mountain highway, left the road and rolled down a bank and landed upright. Fortunately she was unharmed and walked away from the wreck, a testament to the strength of the old goat.:) The wreck has been recovered and stored until I can go pick it up.

Wow, she’s very lucky. Modern vehicles have much better rollover protection. Glad to hear she wasn’t hurt and didn’t get thrown out the window.

Your sister is OK that is what is important. You had a nice truck but I'm sure you are blessed in many other areas.


make the inside of your engine oil cap white.
don't use.

Happy your sister was unharmed. I would suggest you keep the old goat to yourself unless you want to get slapped.

Glad she's ok, sorry for your loss.

Now you just need a truck that needs your drivetrain....

No collision insurance? If there is a Copart nearby, have them sell it.

Thanks guys, We're already looking for a replacement for the old Dodge, so I'll be salvaging this one for the Cummins and what parts I can keep from it. She really loves the old goat, so I can get another one pretty cheap.:)

I'm pretty impressed someone is still driving an early 90s Dodge truck. There ain't many around.

That cab damage is one of the reason newr vehicles no longer have vent windows but huge A pillars. I'm glad your sister was OK. That type of accident gets dangerous if a belt wasn't used.
