This is about my truck. I'm not apart of any Cummins forums so I figured I'd ask here.
Two nights ago my rim broke where the outside changes to the inside of the rim. Just below where the bead seats.
I was cruise controlling at 60mph and the when it broke it yanked the steering wheel straight right. Which was a rock wall. (ocean on the left, rock mtn on the right)
I wasn't able to over correct it quick enough to keep me from hitting the front bumper against the rocks but kept the truck from getting completely pitted. It wedged into the rock wall and the short ditch. My snowmobile flew out of the truck but was luckily undamaged. Appears that when I hit the mtn a rock piece broke free cause something hit down on my bed cap and crushed a portion of my bed. Airbag light was on but no airbags went off. Read window blew out. Cab is smashed in along with the rear door, and obviously the front tire area is pretty messed up including the front bumper and fender.
I hit my face on the steering wheel but other than a sore back, hurt wrist, and bloody nose I'm mostly unscathed.
So that's a decent summary of events, my question is, should I pursue Dodge making this right or just file an insurance claim and let the insurance company go after dodge? I'd rather not have my rates go up if Dodge can just handle it.
