Big Rock Also Took Out Gas Tank!

My "big rock encounter" on Colorado I70 west of Vail also required replacing the gas tank, tank strap, and a lower rear control arm. The tank was severely gouged but not leaking (yet!). Good for State Farm for approving the added parts .

Re: Big Rock Also Took Out Gas Tank!

I hope you brought the rock home as a souvenir!

Glad to hear you are being properly taken care of.

Glad to hear that the tank is rugged.

Re: Big Rock Also Took Out Gas Tank!

Wow! Glad those tanks can take the impact and not explode like they show in movies.

I have been happy w/ State Farm...

Cheers,
