Yeah, I had originally thought about using a 2x4, but decided that a 2x12 would be better, since it would hold all of our groceries to the back of the bed. I may go get another 2x12 for a second one to hold the coolers, for when we make a huge perishable run, to the middle of the bed. But since my truck is now “totaled,” I am looking at getting a long bed Silverado. There’s 3 or 4 positions for these in the bed, we’ll see what I do after I buy my new truck.
We are. I got the worst of it, broken foot, and the rest of my family has/had seatbelt bruising. The other guy was “ran off the road” by a moron passing us and the truck in front of us, going into a blind curve, over a hill. He then lost control on the dirt shoulder by over correcting, re-enterred the road, airborn, watched his front wheels flip from left (to get on the road) to full right. EMTs were saying that he was dead on impact. The moron is still out there somewhere. The truck in front of us couldn’t keep up with him, trying to get more information to give CHP. He was overheard saying that the moron was doing more than 100MPH.

Well, after Sunday evening, looks likes I may have to start my <$50 mods all over again. We’re okay. I have a broken foot, wife and kids have seatbelt bruises, wife sprained a couple knuckles, and son has a bruised rib or two from the left rear door (during the spin). I was pinned at both feet, individually. Left foot was pinned between the E brake and some floorboard, and my right foot was pinned between some floorboard and the center console. Wife and kids (truely) walked away,, and I “walked away” on a stretcher. Now to see what insurance says. http://www.desertnews.com/news/article_f7cae706-7e1e-11e8-aed4-af9e25d44838.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=email&utm_campaign=user-share
I’m pretty sure that it’s totaled. None of the GM dealerships in the AV have a body shop, they off-site their body work. Front left A-arm is SEVERED, fender is missing (or at least I have no idea where it is), and I’m pretty sure the engine is toast.
Wife and kids had seatbelt bruising, son has bruised rib(s) from being pinned to the door during the spin, and I have a broken foot. I had to be pulled out, as both of my feet were independently pinned, and my seatbelt would NOT release. Had several nurses, during my ER trip that night and with the family yesterday, say that they were surprised and glad that I was still alive. http://www.desertnews.com/news/article_f7cae706-7e1e-11e8-aed4-af9e25d44838.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=email&utm_campaign=user-share May get another Silverado. Not sure if I want to stay with the 1500 or get a 2500. BUT, I am set on getting a “Midnight Edition,” regardless of whatever truck I get.
