    I believe you mean a write off

    and there's no way to know until you get it looked at by a shop and an insurance appraiser

    Glad you weren't hurt. I wonder if the bull bar took enough of a hit that the airbag sensor didn't trip.

    Looks like you will be getting a new truck. Not sure why the airbags didnt go off? Did you buy it used?

    The computer decides if the collision profile requires airbag deployment.

    Since in some cases the airbags are superfluous or even dangerous, they are only deployed if they are going to help.

    Did you nail the Dodge?
    I doesn't look like a loss, but that engine bay looks deceiving. Other than that, the rest looks cosmetics. Good luck. Glad you're ok. Come on, admit it... you're thinking 2012 aren't you? Haha.

    Did you mean Write off? As in totaled? I don't think so that's just lights, 2 quarter panels, hoods, grill, and bumper.

    All depends if there is significant damage besides the cosmetic stuff. My truck is currently in the shop due to the below, $8500 in damage. Nothing major, new front number, hood, grill, fenders, lights, and the radiator mounts were messed up. The two front quarter panels were pushed back a little too, not 100% sure if they are being replaced or juts fixed, but the whole cab is getting re-painted, possibly the whole truck if it needs to be matched perfectly.

    However the damage to your truck looks a lot worse than mine.

    looks like the hit missed the airbag sensors. they are right below the radiator i believe. someone correct me if I'm wrong. And the bumper (the aluminum one not plastic, and not the bull bar) looks like it took a beating that could have tweaked the frame. Again I'm not expert lol my .02

    That bull bar didn't do a thing, If anything it made it worse. Imagine if you had a Demello or ARB. Probably would have kept everything pretty intact. Im glad your safe though man, As in write off? Like its been said, An insurance company wont deal with Bent frames, Trashed motors and burnt trannys.
