last week my beloved 2002 Escalade was rear-ended. minor damage....needs a new bumper and some bits underneath. no one was injured badly which is good. so i took her to the dealer and traded her in on a 2005 EXT in diamond white. i guess i have to start all over now with exhaust, wheels, yada yada. i was going to hold out for an 07 but the deal was too good to pass up. just thought i'd share the joy :thumbsup:

i had to give my truck and 16k. i got 31k for my trade and i had about 3k invested in wheels, exhaust, tint, blah blah. my truck had 25k miles on it, but i had a good bit of equity in my truck so it worked out pretty good in the end.

31K on a trade with a wrecked rear, thats awesome! Just goes to show that they are stilll holding their values. Its just the fools who are panicking and trying to get upper 20's for them that are bringing the values down.

some idiot rear ended me last week. The guy was in a rush. Luckily I had a go rhino bar connected to the hitch that will need to be replaced. He did manage to destroy two of the back up sensors. Truck really looks fine. 1200 was the estimate. Congrats on the new truck tho.

I really don't care. It was the other guys fault so his insurance has to pay. Im playing phone tag with the adjuster guy. So I need to tell him my side of the story. Ya if my go rhino bar wasnt on there would have been so much more damge.
