This was taken from a Ford Truck website I've been hitting. I'm trying to learn everything I can about my PSD (Dang I love this beast!!) and came across this post.

It's a tad difficult to read because the kid typing didn't use punctuation. Just read it to yourself and imagine someone talking to you. It makes it easier to understand.

Hey everyone i thought id express my thoughts on the new super duty trucks as i unfortunately found out first hand just how well built the new super dutys are i work for the United States Forest service on the Plumas national forest in northern california and unfortunately we had a big accident and i was right int he middle of it one of our crew trucks a brand new 2001 F350 super duty crew cab with a trinton V10 and a utility box was compeletly destroyed with all of us in it a long a story but ill give the basic quick version the driver not me took his eyes off the road for i second and next thing i know we are sliding off a cliff into a bunch of little tree's we finally come to a complete stop and thats when the real bad stuff happened the cliff side we slide off on was so step that when we finally hit a tree and stopped no more then a second and a half later the truck started to roll over we did a complete roll and where going to roll again but fortunaltey a big Doug fur tree stopped the truck before we could again the truck is completely totalled out being just about every body part on it is smashed up or dented all the window broke out except the front wind shield i was fortunate enought o be able to crawl out the rear window and walk away from it along with the 3 others in the truck and the only reason we all were able to do this is because of the well built strong ford super dutys i know there tough as is i own a 84 f250 its a tank but i really think that the new super duty design of the cab is really what saved us i think the older design cab like the ones used from 80 to 97 wouldnt of stayed together manily the roof not caving all the way in as this 2001 f350 did not like i think the older cabs would have just because they arent built as well as the new ones our the truck is completely trashed but through all that it still was running sitting there in gear idleing just fine like nothing every happened being it was 40 feet down a cliff on its side hung up in a tree one of the first things i said to one of the others guys is built ford tough i really thought with all the weight of that truck that the roof would have caved in much more then it did im glad it didnt and now i know first hand the new ford super duty is a good truck i just thought id share this experience with you since it been my first accident in a car/truck ever in my life being im 19 i hope that it is my last
