    I would take the insurance money, do a satoshi grill black the headlights and put a bull bar on the front! As well as replace the entire front end basically! Best bet may be to get one from a junk yard and fix it up and have it painted!

    Dang that sucks. But I suggest an offroad bumper color matched with Satoshi.

    I would also have them check over all you hoses and radiator real good for any damage. Next time don't park that close to a big fire. LOL

    since the other vehicle cause the damage to your truck, there insurance should fix it, vandalism or not. You didn't piss the person who hates the owner of the other car. I would push the issue real hard and threaten to get an attorney. If you have to claim it on your insurance, make sure they go after the other company to recoup their costs. The best thing you can do is get the other cars insurance to fix it or cut you a check.

    If you ask them to get paid, and they say no, its not covered, and you just walk away, they win. Push the issue! Clearly if that car wasn't in front of you, there would be no damage to your truck. INSURANCE COMPANIES ARE SHADY!
