Stupid question my insurer also has the truck loan...wouldn't they be charging the insurance company who's at fault. They won't be paying for anything. In the perfect world they would be looking out for me and making me get my truck back and charge the other insurer whatever it costs to fix......
Most dirt bags that run from the police don’t have insurance- especially the DC Md area

It's crazy I've never seen a shatter like that.

I work in the automotive industry and have handled these wheels many times, and I must say, I never would’ve thought it was possible to shatter one like that, especially considering the accident could’ve been WAY worse.
definitely NOT forged as we were told.

I've already been told one of my badlands standard wheels is bent enough to throw off alignment. I've never beaten it on or offroard. Seems pretty SUS.

Sucks it’s taken a month to get here, bud. Still sending you some good vibes and hope the repair is expedited.

Hope you did get a lawyer and that process is moving along as well. Glad the cops got the jackass that caused this, but you in no way deserve to get screwed over this.

Thanks for the update and any future ones and the ultimate good news that you’ve got her back on the road and enjoying getting life back to normal.

New axle, driver back 1/4 panel, floor, tire and sensors, rear lights, driver door, rear bumper, Suspension and I have them put on a tow hitch. All in 25k in repairs. They did a great job.

It's looking great! Must have been the longest wait ever lol.

Mine is tied up in the body shop waiting on a backordered replacement tailgate and it's been such a wait.

See if you can get a diminished value check from insurance company. A major collision decreases the resale value of your Bronco. You should be paid that difference.

Cops were chasing a Jeep Cherokee and it hit me.

Does this look like a total. Just got in December has just under 3k miles.

Jeep on right is the one being chased and then hit me.

Most concerning for me is the crunch under the hard top. The back gate opens perfectly so it all in the back 1/4. Plus worried about axle/suspension....

I still cant belive how the actual rim chattered unless that's the point of impact

How does this look, is that shock mount look bent? I have no warnings on dash ,just 2 on app, tire pressure and rear blind spot indicator which is gone ofcourse. No airbag deploy....just hoping the stuff we can't see is repairable

Is there any reason our society has insurance pay for the repairs or replacement instead of having the person who ran into you pay for it out of pocket?
