I hit a huge pothole today...

Damages: Cracked windshield, destroyed tire pressure sensor and my odometer lost a digit.

On the bright side- the truck now has 200,000 fewer miles.

Drive safely

What year truck? Couple guys at work were talking about body seam flex causing noise and cracked windshields on some year model GM trucks.

Was it a pothole or a crater? You are lucky you didn't loose a tire too.

If this story was posted as a joke, why is everyone taking it seriously?

Jokes, stories or tall tales. Could be a story. not necessarily a joke

Guess we'll have to wait until 841K9 let's us know

Joke? Hmmmm. I don't know how you'd have this amount of damage without a blow out. Either the driver is lucky, or this is a joke that isn't particularly funny.

It is a 2008 Express 2500 with 268,000 miles.

I have two other Express vans and an Express box truck.
The box truck is now the only one without a cracked windshield.

No joke.

The roads this year are exceptionally bad.

I was amazed when it didn't blow a tire or bend a rim.

If you lost 200,000 miles off your vehicle, maybe you also lost 10 years off your age???

Pothole

Perhaps this thread needs to be moved out of the "joke" group, as it doesn't seem to belong here.

841K9: Sorry I misread the story.
