    I would ask the insurance company but sometimes you can buy the truck back for $1000. That might be better than trying to hunt it down in a junk yard (unless you are in a small town I guess). Good luck with the new project. Glad no one was hurt that dash pic looks nasty!

    my wreck was not that bad but it was only a honda civic that pulled out in front of me, i was going about 35mph, check out my website for pics. I just kept it, instead of giving it to the insurance.

    The fact that your're not hurt is a testament to the build quality of our trucks. You took on a Suburban and walked away. Sorry the truck got so badly hurt, but it saved your butt. Try hitting a 'burban with an import...

    Same here!
    I saw the pics too, I'm glad that you guys made it out alright.
    After seeing the damage in the truck and the outside a major loss for a great looking truck, at least you can get another one and probably make it better than the last one you had.
    Hope for the best.
