I think I may order one myself if it turns out the Challenger did that much damage to the Ram :) Tell me it ain't so or do they REALLY build em that strong?

That's what I was going to say! Are they still building them out of plate steel like they did in the old days? :D

What!?!? No pic of the pole? Did it survive? That's a real bummer. Really sorry for your misfortune. Is the truck totalled, or is it repairable?
There is no such thing as a bad day camping.

Looks like the Challenger was feeling left out with all the attention that pole-seeking truck was getting!!! At least your insurance company is happy. I had a run of luck like that with 3 claims in one week! Not good.
