    I'm sure they exist, but don't expect a big discount. Remember, fenders and bedsides can be replaced relatively easily.

    I think any second gen that will have a salvage title would have had to have likely had frame and/or engine damage or have been in a roll over. Otherwise the vehicle would have been repaired.

    If you can buy it right it would be a good deal, and if you can get parts cheaper than MSRP.
    Keep in mind that most dealerships won't take a vehicle in trade if it has a salvage title.
