Thanks Hank,
It was my oldest boys. He had it parked in town at a friends while they were out of town for the weekend and a girl hit the driver side front bumper so hard it knocked it 60’ down the street and pushed it it over a 16” curb. Totaled her Corolla and only bent the bumper back about an inch. At that point I knew it was a tough little truck, so when her insurance company wanted to total it out I asked what they had to have to buy it back. They paid the boy $2,600 and sold it to me for $240. I’d been bugging my wife about buying a newer side by side and she asked me what it would take for me to fix up the Raider instead. I told her 6-8k, that’s how I got the 2-3k per year budget to spend on it.

Ain’t I lucky!!!
