    My family instructed me not to mess with the trans, although, it's due for a new filter and it needs to come out to seal the rear main.

    Good for you man, not sure I'd have the guts to tackle it, although from the pics it looks mostly cosmetic.

    Only thing mechanical is the radiator, everything else is awesome and it's only a broken tab. I have 3100 to get this thing in tip top shape!

    Between my wholesale accounts and multiple vendors I think she will have some extra spending money in her pocket.

    I think so, all the damage is in the front, a hood and rf fender is all it needs body wise.

    Dang that is a heck of a deal.... If the insides are in great shape there's no loss... EVen if you had to put in a new motor or trans down the road you'd still save way more than buying a new truck, plus all the LS motor's now day... 210K isn't unheard of and is easy miles for fleet motors that have had the oil and fluids changed pretty regularly. Only downside is they usually have the pee run out of them by jugheads that drive them like hell...

    I hit a deer with the wife's 01 mustang once. They didn't total but gave us $3800 for repairs . Between eBay and local aftermarket parts I fixed it for like $700 bucks without any paint work though. Then sold it a few yrs later for $2800. You should do just fine on yours. There's tons of avalanches out there for parts

    Have $2200 worth of parts on order for this, going aftermarket I would have saved maybe 200, wasn't worth it to me to mess with stuff that doesn't aleays fit out of the box.

    Good idea since it was not much difference on cost.

    Nope not at all, I should have the parts Tuesday and hopefully painted by Friday and I'll put the front end back together over the weekend and hopefully start on the other stuff.

    Didn't get a ton done today but I can live with it.


    Fender and hood are on, it needed a slight massage on some parts to clear everything. I think the accident moved some bolt locations.
