The roof could be difficult though. How are the bed rails?

That sucks man. I wouldn't say its totaled though. My sister's boyfriend rolled his ranger and they replaced all the panels except 1 or 2 and repainted. It was an 06 too. Yours doesn't look too bad, everything mechanical is working.

That sucks big time dude, but you know you want another Ranger. If you go with a Mustang, don't get a 6 cylinder.

I really doubt it's totaled lol. They will just fix all the dents and replace any of the broken stuff. They will probably use a mix of both paintless and actual bodywork, but in the end I really really doubt you'll even be able to tell. Your truck is pretty new and I'm sure the paint either isn't even faded yet or is only faded a tiny tiny bit and they will blend it. It's not THAT bad.

Nah body doesnt look bad on it... might throw some body filler and repaint roof, then replace panels...if insurance hasnt gotten a hold of it yet, fry something electrical...insurance company's will total a vehicle if it al-of-a-sudden has electrical problems out the wazoo.... lol Just kidding, you may get lucky and they might total it, but dont get your hopes up, its unlikely.

We had that same storm roll through. Not as big of hail but still got plenty of damage to some vehicles. The GT came out ok, just one super small one on the fender.

I was at work just watching my GT and my GFs Mini S get pelted. Hers came out unscathed.

Dosent matter if its not totaled, would anyone want to make payments on something that looks like you let 20, 5 year olds loose on your truck each armed with a ball pein hammer?


We had a storm similiar to that here in NH a year or two back. Dealers are STILL stuck with cars that have been damaged. Theres alot of time into fixing every single one of those dents, looks like every single body panel got it too. At $88+-/hr adds up fast.

LOL, all of you are pretty much wrong.

1st. It will not be totaled

2nd Paintless dent CAN fix a dent that is on a curve/ridge

3rd Stop looking at other cars because yours IS not totaled

The hail storm we had a couple weeks ago damaged by buddies Silverado, he had more then what you have. They replaced the hood and then paintless dent fixed the rest, even the ones in the curve/ridge. You cant even tell, we were both skeptical as well, but you honestly cant even tell.

Oh, if you havnt already called, call your insurance company, you can/will get a new roof for your house because of the hail.

That sucks!
We had 1.75" hail 15 miles to the southwest, I was worried because my wife's car was outside at work, and I was out of town (same storm came right over me). Luckily the hail just barely missed us, most I saw yesterday was pea-sized. Last week we had nickle sized hail.

I did see a pretty wicked wall cloud yesterday with pretty good rotation, no tornadoes though.

Anyway, I would be surprised if the truck was totaled.

I don't see how an insurance company would ever total a vehicle for that.
I could see them totaled a car that had melon sized hail fall on it I suppose. But I would just hate to see a perfectly good car get totaled for hail damage.
