I hope everything works out with the truck.
It sure sucks when you get in a wreck that is someone else's fault and you have to deal with all this crap. Hopefully insurance is taking care of you better than Geico (the insurance of the guy who hit us) did us. 9 days from the wreck before they looked at our car. The adjuster wouldn't make time to meet us to take the title and white a check. I had to over-night it, and they took 30 some hours to look at it before sending it back. All in all it was 12 days before we had a check to get another car. We ended up paying an extra $120/mo and $2k of my cash down to get another car, because nothing in the price range compared to the car we had, not even close.
Just make sure you are not impulse buying or 'downgrading' because you are getting rushed into finding a truck.

Good luck.

Oh you found the joys of dealing with Geico, I have heard much worse stories and on a daily basis! Progessive is about equally as bad as well. If only if they were as good as their commercials from both of them were.

They are absolutely horrible. I went over our cell phone minutes constantly calling them. Nobody was communicating with each other so I had to keep calling. They couldn't figure out where the car was for three days, wouldn't get it moved, wouldn't assign a local adjuster, etc etc.
I wanted to use my company (allstate) but I would have had to pay the deductible up front and waited to get it back. And Geico told me they wouldn't rent a car for us if I used allstate. I needed all my money for a down payment. In the end Geico offered $500 less than allstate and wouldn't budge an inch, and I was stuck because I had their rental car.
I only hope the pain and suffering part goes better, jerkoffs.

Waiting on check from insurance. I put down a refundable deposit. If this truck sells out from underneath me I'm getting a 2009 F150 4x4. I hope this one works out though

For a guy having $26 in his bank account thats a huge payment to take on. Thats a good sized payment man, make sure you think twice before doing it.

The only reason Im broke is I bailed my buddy out of jail -$750 and paid sales tax on mustang -$1460 and Personal Property tax -$370

I normally keep $3-4k in the bank. I pay $500 a month on ranger (min. is $300) I can get a f150 for under $400
