On friday 4-20-07 i was stopped at a red light on a highway. Then all of a sudden SH$T started flying everywhere. It was then that I had realized that I was hit. I was already on the brake from the red light and when i got hit i was on the brake harder trying not to hit the guy in front of me. I was hit by a Nissan Sentra. The speed linit on the road is 60mph. There was only about 30-40 feet of skid marks for him and 10 for mine. He went up under my truck.
The pictures didnt turn out like i wanted and do no justice of what you really see, it was a camera phone. now i am playing the waiting game to see what the first estimate of damage is, I do know i need a completly new bed. I will post better pics when I go back with a real camera.
Any Idea of damage costs?
2004 Titan LE w/ big tow package.

well, the Sentra owner just bought a Titan, that's what I think... Several years ago, my prior truck got hit from the rear, peeled my bed up (similar looking damage). The estimator had their shop tear it down and the frame was found to have been also twisted and bent. Apparently the frame was was beyond "safe" to repair so it got totalled and written off. Poor sap that had a Mistubishi Eclipse ended paying for the loss... I hope your frame is good and that the bed just needs replacing... Hope all goes well with your insurance company... If it get's totalled, buy it back and build yourself a monster ride....

I wasnt hurt, I never saw it comming, so I never tensed up. I am a little tight today. As far as the other guy, when I asked if he was ok, he was kinda dazed. He was taken to the hospital by ambluance. Everybody was very cool to me, once they found out I was an off duty Firefighter. I will post more once I find out if it is totalled. And YES I am sticking with a Titan.

UPDATE!!!

It was totaled out due to unfixable frame damage. Insurance paid me very well for my truck. So now I am replacing it with a 2007 LE Texas Titan crew cab w/ big tow in Galaxy. I will post pics when I pick it up. When I purchased my first Titan in 2004 I heard rumor that the Galaxy did not have a clearcoat, is that a rumor, still true, or corrected?

I could be wrong, but I thought mine had clearcoat.

It looks awsome when it's clean (not very oftern).

Good luck with the new truck!

Galaxy Black does have a clearcoat on it.
Nice to hear that you're not hurt and that your getting a new truck instead of a repaired truck. Good luck.

When do you pick up the new one?

well I replaced my Titian with another one. A week later and dealing with 3 different dealerships I have my new Titan LE CC Texas Titan. One of the dealerships tried to sell my 2 different damaged Titans. One had hail damage which I saw after the dealer was closed and it was under the lights. I called them out on it and was hung up on. If you live in or around Austin, message me and I will let you know what dealership it was.

Glad you are okay and that you are getting another Titan..

As for the Clearcoat question, Older Sentras and Frontiers in Black or White did not have clearcoat.
