Glad you are ok.


A very good friend of mine died over the summer after he was ejected from his truck in a roll.
I agree. It is taking too much of a chance, not wearing the seatbelt.

wow, along with everyone else here, I'm glad you're ok man. Accidents are scary, no matter how severe, start wearin that seat belt, it's a habit of mine as well.
btw: ice sucks

That's one tough ladder to still be in one piece after that roll

Nick I bet that was no doubt a wild ride. I am glad you are all right, and able to talk about it with few injuries.

I got 100%. I think the bump on the head might have helped.

A guy from work and i were having this very conversation the other day about work vans. A friend of his was killed in an accident like this. Did yours have a bulkhead installed? We just were noting how many vans we see without them. I think it should be a law that work vehicles be equipped with them. Just my .02 Glad to hear that u are ok.

THe bulkhead is the only thing that kept the drivers compartment from crushing down. Those ladder rack really push the roof in when you roll. Sorry about your friend.

Yea i noticed u have the same ladder rack as we do, glad to hear that the bulkhead was installed, people dont understand what a small amount of metal can do to save your life in an accident.
