    Qualifier - I'm no body man. I would guess that the box post at the front end of the door jam would need to be cut and replaced, the rest can likely be beat out, bondoed, etc. Damn that's a bummer, I hope you get it back together soon.

    I work in a bodyshop and we would write it to replace that panel. If you want it done right, section a new piece in that spot. Im sure theres damage behind it also.

    Tint. (DONE) Soon to come. 3in Llift (OME) Color matched grill (DONE) BHLM (DONE) Tail tint (DONE) Pro comp rims (8069) End goal: Murdered out truck
    ONE.......MILLION DOLLARS. It'll cost money though, each shop is gonna quote you and say well the integrity of the truck is partially compromised you can clearly see it so it'll take some work, they might just try and take your arm or leg right then and there. Same thing happened to me years ago. I walked away instantly

    It's actually a truck I was looking at buying. I decided not to as the cost to fix could be substantially more than I'm willing to invest. Thanks for the feedback!

    My ballpark is 4k-5k since there is extensive damage to the floor pan...it is going to take a lot of straightening.

    I suspect the truck was totaled, he did a buy back and now trying to dump it since the repair cost with salvage title puts him under water...or he spent the insurance money.

    Yes, the tire got jamed under the UCA. It was a 2010 TRD Offroad 4X4 DCSB pretty much fully loaded, 2500 miles. Damages included what I showed you, both passenger side doors, windshield, fender, headlights, grill, front end damage to suspension (pretty much needed a new suspension, hub, brakes, wheel at that corner), center console plastic, glove box...and some minor cosmetic damage. What really concerned me is that the transmission shiftbox sat canted towards the driver ever so slightly...it appeared as if the hit was signficant enough that it moved the transmission - causing more damage than I could see there.

    I figured if the insurance company totaled such a new car worth 30K, there must be atleast 10-15K in damage. I was looking for a car with damage so I could fix it back up the way I want to but I balked cause in NV in order to get a rebuilt title to drive on the street I'd have to repair it and have DMV certify it...I'm not sure they'd approve it with the kind of mods I was going to make and I didn't want to repair to original factory specs just to tear it back down...I would have snatched it up at under 15K but the auction went above that.

    I suspect bought by a professional rebuilder who needs the body panels from the OTHER side of the truck, or who can fix it with parts on hand from other wrecks.

    Stay away, stay very far away.
