    I wouldn't bid on it until you can confirm it is still for sale and is in tact

    Looking at some of the pics whatever this truck hit transfered all the way to the rear. See how the rear bumper is angled down. Could have major frame damage. Couldn't tell if any glass was cracked, but airbags went off and those aren't cheap. Hopefully truck starts and runs, looks like ac lines might be damaged. You could go with a aftermarket steel front bumper seeing as how that area has alot of damage. Other than those few and obvious things I wouldn't personally bid over $12,000 because of those unknowns and that you'll be spending quite a bit to be road legal for a rebuilt salvage title. Granted it is very low mileage but tacomas can be bought under $20k without major front end damage and under 100k miles here in ohio.

    If it is possible to see the truck in person i'd do so and get some more info to help you see what all will be needed as a starting point. More so than some pics, in person offers more information.

    Truck starts and runs. Carfax is good it's the insurances truck that's good. I think the rear bumper is just kinda off or something don't think the frame damage would have got all the way there and messed it up!

    Also I was thinking about $16k for it that's how much they go on copart
