    drive it? fix it? part it out? Turn it into an urban assault vehicle? Turn it into the ultimate pizza delivery truck that can sometimes be used to deliver chinese food?

    So many possibilities...maybe you should write these down and put them on a board then figure out which one will be the best.

    You could also turn it into a convertable truck with no doors. Put a hot-tub in the back?

    My brain is full of ideas some more obscure than others.

    I'm hoping it's more than just the bed and hood that are fine. If that's all you've got, then put some padding in the bed and prop the hood up verically and make a nice bench.

    Sorry, yeah the truck is intact, but for the passanger door damage into the frame of the truck.
    I really wanted to know what the best way to get money out of the thing.
    part it out, sell it whole?
    nice 2.4L maroon tacoma. standard cab. 2wd
    now it looks like she is going to have a junkyard give a quote on the truck... they think it'll bring 1K from them... ha.

    Is the insurance company totalling it? Depends on thier offer to repair, or to buyout on the total. Salvage titles are great if you want to keep the car until it dies, but reselling a car with a salvage title can be a bitch.

    So if you want a legit answer, we need a few things. Year, mileage, buyout/total offer from insurance, salvage or not and of course....

    Part it out as much as you can, then have a junkyard come pick up whats left of the chassis. Years ago I bought a '95 honda accord that had been in a front end collision for $300. I rented a storage unit for 2 months for $105. Parted it out, probably made close to $1,000 in parts. Plus I got some spare parts for my own accord which happened to be the same exterior and interior color. I called a junkyard down the road and told him I have a chassis he can have for scrap. I told him he can have it for free and I have title in hand as long as he comes to get it. He came within 15 minutes with a flatbed tow truck. Pulled the chassis out of the storage unit w/ a winch and took it to the yard. I talked to him a few months later and he said he sold the chassis for $200 in scrap metal two days after I gave it to him. Win-win for the both of us.

    OK, that has to be the most idiotic placement of ridiculous stick-on nonsense I've ever seen. What is that one up front, a blinker? At least it has a locking gas door, lol..........Just make a trail rig with no doors....minus the vent shit.........

    KNOW I had nothing to do with them... I just got the duty of unloading the leftovers.

    Hmm. I figured somebody on here would be interested in something off the truck.
    oh well.
    locally the bed, and seats have been claimed. the entire drivetrain and wheels/tires driver's door and fenders are available still...
