So, some @SShole smashed mine and a neighbor up the street mailbox on purpose today with his pickup. Now I have an excuse to build the pipefitter mailbox of my dreams.

I am soliciting design ideas, features, etc.

I have in mind 3" sch 80. Fill with concrete, set in concrete. Possibly box in 1x6 or whatever for the sleeper look.

When a vehicle hits it, I would like it to be totaled. Any suggestions?

What about a mine field, way more bang for your buck!

I live in the old part of town where crazies abound. I don't want my packages to get stolen so I built this a few years ago.

Now I have to build a fence against my welfare neighbor who rides a van with broken windows and he literally built a shed, gazebo, 2nd floor balcony, deck and so on with scraps of wood found in the trash, He only rents the tiny rundown apartment!

Could go old school and fill cast with cement wye, 45 and clean out at the top. I’ll have to think about the actual box today.

There have been cases in the past of people hitting a mailbox and suing the owner of the mailbox for injuries/property damage.

Not saying I agree with it but you better learn what you’re getting yourself into.

Try explaining that to judge Judy, "Well mam I smashed 3 mailboxes by accident."

Judge Judy : "Do I look like a fool? either you were mischievous or drunk, which one is it?"

I used to drive OTR. So I would often bring the truck home. To make it easier I mounted my mailbox to a steel pipe welded to a big truck drum. This way I could roll it out the way to get my 53 foot flatbed in the yard. One night I heard some noise out front, next morning my mailbox was gone. Found pieces of the drum down the road along with a trail of oil. Nice!
