    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

    It's their insurance that came up with that figure, but the mechanic said that until it was in the air and taken apart the real extent of the damage is still an unknown.

    I have a list of things I'm watching closely, and once the shop writes the real estimate I'll go from there. Involving my ins company and their bloodhound lawyers will be a secondary approach. It will be as good as it was before this event or I will reject the work until it is right.

    As i said before, i was in an accident just like this just with some more body damage. So from what i went through i can give you a list of parts i needed replaced so you can have an idea.

    Rear End:
    1:New leaf packs and u-bolts driver/passenger
    2:New rear shocks driver/passenger
    3:New rear axle/differential (Mine was leaking and it wouldn't hold oil)
    4:New Drive shaft
    5:New carrier barring (bracket was kind of tweaked also)
    5:New brake lines

    Make sure they check you rear cross member and make sure its not bent.

    Body Work
    1:Side panel on the bed
    2:Rear panel behind door was cut out and replaced (Check your passenger side also. If the bed twisted it probably hit you passenger side rear panel and dented it also.
    3:Rocker panel was cut out and replace
    4:New door skin
    5:New rim and tire
    6: paint

    All i can remember

    $15-16k worth of damage. They estimated the value of my truck at $26k before the accident.

    I went on toyotas parts website and added up all the parts includind body panels and added $1000 for miscellaneous items so i would have a general idea. I forgot what the price came out too, but at $15k the shop was making a decent profit even though the truck took a month to finish because of parts.

    Drives just like new. I understand why people would say it would never drive the same, or its totaled, but realistically if the frame or leaf spring mounts are not bent your will be fine. If the truck gets fixed and the rear end alignment numbers are not in specs then you know something is bent.
