I hit the fire hydrant in front of my house a few weeks ago moving a gooseneck trailer around getting ready for moab. They replaced it today.

I snapped some photos.

I tried to get them to let me have the old one, but they wouldn't...which doesn't make any sense because they put a BRAND NEW ONE in and the insurance is paying for it.

For the record, the fire hydrant along is $750...plus the crew of 8 that was out there for 4 hours putting it in...

thanks goodness for insurance...

Come on now Alan it's a truck not wrongler. You need to take them corners a little wider :)

Mac I can totally see why you would hit it with a big ass trailer hooked to a big ass truck, they do need to move her down a few more feet though for sure.

man... you think they'd paint that hydrant high-vis yellow or something so people could see it :doh:


Next time you hit it, rip it out, and then snag it for me, I'm pretty sure its a Kennedy hydrant, I need another one...

see you guys think i am joking, but this guy drives by my house more then the ice cream truck does honking everytime.

it was not that bad when he drove the XJ, but the horn on that oversived Jeep Compass sounds like its off of a Honda Civic and i cant stand the damn thing.

i think the Libby would look good in pink anyway, it would look right on that so called SUV. lol
