The accident was almost head on mainly on the passenger side. The impact was hard the air bags went off in the other car but neither one of ours went off. For about a year prior to the accident the truck would stall at random times.

Speedometer sticks, almost every trip after a short duration (5-10 min). Also, tachometer occasionally sticks during extended drives 3hrs or more. In addition, instrument cluster replaced under warranty after first failure. Speedometer up to 15 mph off. Forcefull tapping on instrument cluster will cause speedometer/tachometer needles to indicate current speed/RPM. Problem is independent of climate control temperature.
