Need Options

Well guys a lot of you know me...and know my truck 1995 2.3l 5 spd
Tonight I was hit...in a hit n run by a dodge durango..they blew a stop sign at 35-40 mph
Hit the right rear bedside on my truck..spun me twice..and the right front my my truck slammed into a tree
Didnt have to get a wrecker I got the truck off the tree and its infront of my house
The radiator is fine....truck runs...clutch still works
but something is bent in the rear im not sure if its the axle..or if its the steel rim....the drive wheel wobbles when you try to drive it
So far damage that I can see
Hood
Front bumper
Right front fender
Fiberglass Bedside
rear Bumper
Bed Cover
Tailgate maybe..not sure yet
Taillight
right front corner lamp and Header panel

I'll have pictures up in the morning
Im guessing its totalled but I may get lucky...im worried though..dunno what to do its my only vehicle
The police didnt find the hit n run vehicle
ive got class 60 miles away every thursday
guess im just looking for advice now

good to see you're ok. as far as being totaled or salvagable. wait to see what the insurance guys say.

it could be cosmetic or it could be frame damaged.

good thing tho, "pics or didn't happen" means if you don't psot pics, it never happened. right? :)

OUCH!!!! Take it to a frame shop, it might have some dog-leg action to it now. Thats allot of damage and it might be over the trucks blue book value. Sorry guy, I hope you catch the shi_ that hit you!!!!
