All said and don't I'll be looking for an independent inspection to verify frame/body/mechanical.

I have a highly calibrated "ass" so my seat of the pants sensors will know if its yawing one way or the other, and independent inspection to go with all the documents. Even after all the repairs I don't know if I can keep it - even if it's perfect. Just knowing what it's been through might be too much for me.

Like I said the minuscule damage from being rear ended last month was almost $6k - so I have no idea how they can take ask me to take that number seriously. The mechanic at the shop agreed - I told him I would eat a flip flop if that number was anywhere close.

My insurance wrote a check for !$2000 for when I hit a deer. Very minor paint damage, dent in drivers door (I pushed that out), and rear bumper.

first, pick a very good body shop.. they will work with your adjuster/ insurance to fix it how you want it fixed, they will also make reccomendations to your ins on your behalf, such as not repairing a plastic bed, but reccomending replacement if they feel thats the better fix.
I went through this with my 12.. I found a body shop that works on porsche, audi, bmw.. they were reccomended by the porsche shop.. their rates are high, and they do repairs correctlly.. you should have the right to take it to any body shop yopu want, but unsure of your state.
I went and told my shop that I did not want the frame fixed or replaced... they worked with me to convince my ins company that there were too many issues in replacing/ fixing the frame.. they were on my side.. find a shop on your side.

this was $5700 to repair, bumper, rt bed side quarter panel, structural piece on that corner of the bed, repaint the tailgate, bumper, and quarter panel. they did replace the rt taillight because some of the clips were broken.

The list on this accident is 5X this list easy - the $7k estimate makes no sense.

Dont forget your Rocky Mount, if they total it. With that kind of damage I wouldn't settle for anything less. I have seen a lot of trucks hit like this and yours is the worst I have seen. Good luck!

It is at the dealer body shop, where I purchased this truck in 2008. They are really great - they do work on porsche/toyota mostly. They seem to be working with me, they told me let the ins guy write for whatever and then they will get it on the lift, make their list, and submit the supplement - assuming the frames not knackered.

If it gets totalled hopefully you can put it back to stock because they are not paying you for your extras.

I would also check for damage to the transfer case and transmission. I have a friend that got hit just like you did and when his driveshaft got ripped out it screwed up the transmission. I think it cracked around the output shaft. Aluminum isn't that hard to crack.

They wrote to replace the "Brkt, Rear Spring LT" part # 4840704020 , It looks like the forward leaf spring perch - this is just in the initial write up - so it looks like they are already assuming thats knackered -so what are the chances the frame is too ( i was under the impression they couldn't change these out).

Was that your insurance, or the person who hit you ? If it's yours, I'd start escalating that up the chain.

If it's the other persons, I'd be calling my insurance company - they've got plenty of lawyers with free time and it's their job to make you whole.

Everything I've seen in your posts would be fixable,,,but make sure that IF they don't replace the rearend housing, make sure your four wheel alianment numbers are correct, I say this cause 2yrs ago someone forced me off the road and I clipped a light pole with my right rear tire. After getting the quarter panel back in shape, I had too take the truck to two different places for an alianment (first one was clueless) to find out that my rear housing was bent (almost 2 degrees) on the right tire, which was not noticable while driving or visuable looking at the truck. After they replaced the rearend you could see the bend in the housing when it was sitting on the floor in the shop. Have had no problems with the truck since.

Best of luck for you
