Default Damaged rams

I decided to start a Thread about damaged Rams, PIX & discussion ???

Last year i took my annual cross country vacation, San Diego to Toronto & then to Connecticut & then back to San Diego

during that drive, my windshield was struck by a small rock & was chipped near Midland Tx. heading East

Then i was driving through a highway construction area going West through either Kentucky, Tennessee, or Arkansas, i came into contact with some kind of asphalt emulsion, i didn't see it right away & it did quite a bit of damage to my paint

After i returned back home & had taken my Ram to get an appointment to get the paint job fixed, i was trying to fit into my parking spot, my neighbor was parked differently then normal & had taken up a little bit of my area. As i was jockeying into my space, going back & forth several times & cranking on the steering wheel. My foot slipped off the brake pedal ...
don't worry, the Olive Tree is still alive, just my rear bumper shell & tailgate are deceased



this is my parking space, you can see the olive tree & this is the way my neighbor usually parks, except for that one day


this same emulsion was on both front fenders, the hood, some on both front doors & along the roof line above the doors


I paid for the repair out of my pocket, instead of going through my insurance, when a Million dollar policy has a claim against it, the rate increase is ridiculous
