I was looking at the hood as well, could be just popped open and sitting on the latch but you can't tell until you see it in person. I'd be willing to bet the frame is tweaked.

this MIGHT be true, but you cant make assumptions like that based only on a few crappy pictures

I would stay far from that. Hidden damage is inevitable.

I have been through this exact repair on a earlier Toyota pickup...we spend months trying to get the frame to realign properly in the rear. If you look at the rear 3/4 view you will see damage to the rear left corner of the cab. Even AFTER pulling the left frame rail straight, there was a bend under the cab causing a vertical misalignment of 3" at the back bumper, and to solve that, we would had to strip the cab and front off the frame, probably the engine also, since the cross members were also tweaked.

Now, let's slice this a different way...what intact body panels can we get off the truck and what is the value of those panels?

There is a reason the commercial rebuilders haven't bought the truck already.

So, assume the frame is toast and a good frame would have to be obtained and all parts switched over, that were good.

I could do it on a Jeep CJ on a weekend, but those are MUCH simplier vehicles.

Then you would still have a salvage title...

You need ONE PANEL, driver side rear quarter. The passenger side is just pushed over (because its connected to the bed), easy to fix.

There *may* be *some* damage to the frame around the suspension mounts on the driver side, fixable, probably not expensive if you don't mind a little bit of welding.

I doubt that there is a major bend in the frame, it looks like the impact picked the truck up from under the frame and hit the wheel... it didn't crush the frame from the back -- you can see that the bumper is mostly intact with just a minor dent. My best guess is that the frame is fine.

Now the stuff that would scare me is mechanical... looks like the driveshaft is hanging. That's not a good sign, could be some damage to the transfer case or transmission... maybe motor mounts, stuff like that. Definitely the spring is shot, and the shock.

Huh, even the tailgate still looks good....


Edit: I would go to 10k on it, and figure it being good for personal use only, no resale value.
x2 he's got a point. Im sure the frame isnt way messed up. I mean yeah the bed is f'ed but the tailgate looks completely fine. Which to me seems like the bed took the most of the blow. IF the frame got really messed up, wouldn't it have moved the tailgate mounts and bed mounts? But i'm just spittin' whats in my head. Could be completely wrong.

Less than 2000 miles. That makes me sad. Poor little truck didn't even get a chance to stretch it's legs. Now it'll probably serve as an organ donor.

As for damage ... consider this: It had to be bad enough that State Farm totaled this brand new vehicle out.
