Yeah unless you're in need of some interior parts I wouldn't bother with it.

if the engine is the same as yours and it runs... Otherwise seriously it's bashed everywhere to hell. You can get wipers/windshield/prolly a deal of the underneath suspension is f'd up. Honestly you should offer him $100 cause I think that's how much a car scrapper would pay him.

every body panel has damage, nothing good there,

rear bumper looks like its bent into a v, which tells me frame damage.

with every body panel messed up, the rad. support is probably messed up, and possibly the radiator pushed into the fan.

with the engine, best case is its your same engine and nothing hit it, but it looks like an older truck, so it probably has more miles than yours does.

so with everything said and done the possible salvage is interior parts, the engine, and the tires(3 look good, 4th is flat) unless you need those parts its not worth 300. i say if hes gonna give it to you, than great if not don't go for it.

They're smart for not claiming it on their insurance...

That truck's worth only a couple thousand in good condition. But if they claim it, his insurance (and theirs) will increase for the next couple years. The insurance company will get their payout back real quick.

HOLY ****. $800 A MONTH?!?!?!? That's...

(getting a calculator....)


Assuming it's a 10 month payment plan like I have, that's $8000 a year for only THREE vehicles!!!! HOLY **** ****!!!

I pay $1500 here in MA for my truck (fully insured) and my motorcycle (everything but collision).

Duder its easy to do bucket mod with an explorer center console. Then you just tuck the fabric down and the center console hides the damage on one side, it's awesome

If you don't wanna deal with cutting your trucks seats up, you're in for a long curse word filled session of seat track swapping because xcab seats will not bolt into a regular cab.


The truck isn't worth it to you. The truck is a 98-00 and has either a 3.0 or 4.0, you can't use any part of the drivetrain other than the rear axle. You MIGHT get $300 in scrap for it MAYBE after you pull any good parts out of it. If your interior is grey and it's interior is grey, they are both different shades of grey. I can probably go on.

But...does the truck have power options? doors, mirrors windows?
