glad that everyone is OK.

Like has been said before trucks can be fixed or replaced. that isn't so easy to do with people.

Hopefully you'll consider this an expensive learning experience...You now know what you should not be doing when it's raining...

No reason to get yourself or someone else hurt or killed because you'd be late for school. Slow down man. Rams handle good but they ain't sports cars. In any case it's good everyone involved is okay.

Don't mean to bust your balls - but if you can afford your truck, you can afford the insurance.

It's pretty much a fact of life for a new driver - you're going to over estimate your capabilities and ding something. Just be glad no one got hurt in the accident.

Best thing you can do is learn from this experience.

I had a H-O collision back in 02 when I was 18. Looking too far ahead making a turn and didnt see a minivan headed my way. I was driving a 2nd gen Dakota with a 4-cyl in it. That's prolly what saved my bacon. The extra crumple space in front of the engine.

Glad your safe dude but like was previously stated slow down. I'm a trucker so I drive alot. A good rule to remember is the speed limit is typically under ideal conditions, not inclement weather.

Peace out
Chris

Exactly what I was thinking when I read this thread. I must admit, if I was your Dad, I would have parked the truck and put you in a $2000 beater until you showed the necessary maturity. Not just because you had an accident; I don't think any 16 yo young man has that level of maturity. I remember what it was like to be 16.

More importantly, I'm glad you're OK and thank goodness you didn't hurt anyone. This is a lot of truck for someone who is 16, especially with the Hemi. It could have been a lot worse.

Your insurance question, whether your insurance will cover the mods, is not straight forward. It differs from company to company and state to state but you will likely be OK; your mods are fairly minor. You should inform your insurance if you modify your truck; this way the mods are on record. If the mods are expensive it may require additional premium for them to be covered. Make sure you keep receipts. However, engine mods are usually not covered and can actually prevent you from getting regular insurance. Again it differs from company to company and state to state. If you do really heavy mods you may need to go with specialty insurance. This insurance is usually agreed value. Depending on the use of the vehicle it can be fairly cheap or incredibly expensive.


PS. By the way Jolley, lose that stupid sticker on the windshield. All it does is show your immaturity.
