Luckly no major injuries. Stiff neck and headaches for me, and some sort of minor head injury for the other driver. I have good documentation on the work that has been done. Hopefully the insurance companies will be fair.

I will definitely be asking for the buy back price on the truck. I think that the driver side shock will need a new shaft and possibly a new coil but otherwise looks ok. The reservoir did not get punctured. The fluid on the tire is brake fluid.

Insurance totaled it. We are fighting over the value right now, since the insurance does not want to recognize the aftermarket work. I am going to buy it back and try and sell it for parts. I will probably set my asking price at $0.50 on the dollar for the major components with the hope that someone is willing to take it away on a trailer. It would be an excellent buy for someone who wants nice seats and needs to build the back of their truck.

I just bought a 2000 Toyota 4runner Limited 4x4 w/ the rear e-locker for my next dd since I really need something with 5 seats and decent gas mileage. I might turn the 4runner into a prerunner in the future if I get the urge.

My axles are in new condition since they were not installed at the time of the accident. The passenger side should be ok. Driver side a-arms are suspect. At a minimum the driver side will need new ball joints. Aaron Dixon said that he would be willing to put the arms and jig and check the for damage. He is also willing to sell replacement parts to complete the kit.

Wow, I just read the whole thing. That was a nice truck and answered some questions I had about andy's at SL. I like the rear shock mounts and the fact that the truck was streetable.
