    I'm also curious. Do you want to buy it back and fix it up for a daily driver or a dedicated rock crawler?

    The buyback is the estimated amount that the insurance company would yield in a salvage sale. Call a local salvage auction yard to get a quote. (Ie Copart, Adessa, IAA, ETC...) Usually about 11% of ACV.

    But does the damage on the vehicle lower the cost of the salvaged vehicle?

    im sure it does, i believe they factor in how much it would cost to repair it to the base value....some how. i know that when bidding on a car the amount of damage totally changes everything.

    completely stock
    its usually 20% of the value of the vehicle.

    I had a 03 hayabusa i got 8000 for. the buy back was 1,600.

    I had an s10 totalled. i got 6500 buy back was 1,250.

    Both with progressive insurance, not sure if it varies by ins. companies

    Edit: Total loss on the busa (over 9000 in damage on paper).
    4,800 worth of damage on the S10 (i bought back and fixed for $700 out of pocket).

    ok, well that helps. That means its ganna probably cost quite a bit to buy it back then. Gay!!
    Everyone ive talked to, said the buy back would probably be like 1200. But no body knows the re-sale value of these trucks except Tacoma owners!
