yeah, the mods done to the truck alone are worth $5k.
if i had the money and it was local i would be allover it.

ask alot of questions, make sure none of the super lift parts are damaged, even if they are you will only need to order a few parts.

Yeah I would shoot for somewhere in the $1200-1400 range. Those stainless rocker panels are pretty sweet too IMO. Do be careful with that though... find out how it was totalled and make sure all the lift parts are still good. Make sure the engine, trans, tcase, and rear axle are alright too. It looks like a front-end collision, which could be bad news for your superlift or engine hopes. Good luck!

yea....i'm a little worried about condition of the lift. That's along with rear end and front axle, then part the rest out. I am going to examine all the important stuff before I get real serious. If I get it, hell i'll have two '01 xlt 4x4s, DEEPWEDGEWOODBLUEFOREVER!!

UPDATE:

I called him this morning. Went and saw it tonight and just got back. I didn't get it. That freaking thing is so beat. Was hit in the front right corner by another car at 60mph, he too was going 60mph.....so it was quite a hit.

It needs allthe right side superlift stuff(knuckle, upper arm, cvshaft, etc). So now it's pricing out new superlift parts to see if the truck is even worth it. It does have a superlift front shaft.

Motormounts are all cracked, so who knows if the block is cracked....only 48k on the truck. Trans looks fine, tcase looks fine and has been gone through, upgraded internals(don't quite remember what was done to it. Frame is visably bent. Cab, right bedside, tailgate, right 4th dr, right door, possibly left door, right fender, left fender, hood, grille, bumpers(upper and lower), header panel, coresupport, radiator, both airbags are all trash. One tire is trash, nice big ole rip hole, but all the alloys are in great shape. Interior is in great condition, but somewhat is taken apart. The right rear spring is flat, but that might just be because of the way it's sitting. I've never seen a steering rack split all the way down! That's just a visual look over on it.

He wouldn't budge in price. He's pretty firm on 1800, he bought it back for 2200. If he was willing to go to 1500, I would have bought it. I'm still going to price out parts from superlift, but, the juice may not be worth the squeeze in the end. But if he's willing to part it out.....I want the rear axle.

All I'm out is $100 for gas in a '76 chevy pickup, $4 for pepsi, $15 for Arby's, and about 7 hours. Cruising in a 400hp truck with 40 series flowmasters and no radio attached to a trailer with a good friend....priceless.
