U canít possibly expect any kind of sound advice with so little info, can u? How bad is damage? Any pictures? Without any more info. Itís really hard to say... if I had to guess with such limited info, Iíd say use it for parts....

It depends how many miles are on it, how rusted the underside is and how good the interior is.
It will need two new front fenders, complete bumper and hood.
The grill and header panel will also need replacing.
If it doesn't steer straight any more, then there is front suspension damage and possibly the frame is bent.
The area where the grill and header panel is bolted onto will be bent.

If it was in Canada BC, ICBC would write it off.

It depends how much you like the truck.
Most would just get a another truck.
