    Oh... You can bet your ass I'd pull that bumper straight off that truck and I'd turn it over with no bumper.

    But check with ToyAuto Mart and Rancho Toyota (salvage). Who cares what color, as long as it fits, if you want to be nice.

    Damn glad you both are alright. Is it bad that I secretly wish someone would "lightly" rearend my truck so I can get a cash payout and then rebuild the truck with all new parts? Mines so old I wouldn't care, but a brand new truck would be hard to stomach.

    Depends on what you want to do with the truck. If it was me, I would keep the truck and mod it. You can get it from insurance for cheap and whatever extra money you get, put it on the mods. If you are planning on keeping the truck for while, resale really doesn't matter. I bought my old second gen with salvage title for 10k and drove it around for almost 50k miles and sold it again for 10k.

    Always used to think this. But now I'm here and my car is still registered in VA so it wouldn't be so convenient anymore.

    On another note, my boss sees me pull up and asks what my "ideal" Fox shocks would be for my truck. They are a client and he wants to run it by our contact at the company. He's done this before and nothing came of it, so we will see this time. Told me "I don't want XXX to come and see those cheap knockoffs on your truck..." haha. Guess Camburg are cheap knockoffs these days.

    Haha I wish. Only Fox products, so sent two options. One with full resi and adjusters in front and rear 2.5" resi with adjusters. Then standard just resi for a cheaper option.

    Thanks, Karan. Not too worried about the rear. I gave my front to the guy I bought the bumper from.

    I didn’t have a good experience with them and my last accident. I was rear ended by an uninsured driver and knew I was already out the $500 uninsured motorist deductible. What got me was I had the rental coverage but it was only for $900 or 30 days. Two weeks in I apparently hit my $900 cap and on the 3rd week I got a call from enterprise saying USAA denied the last charge. I had two options. Take the car back or pay out of pocket for it. I decided to take it back and pay the $450 for the one week USAA wasn’t covering and had failed to notify me that I had reached the $900 cap. Thankfully enterprise hooked me up with a little discount and only charged me $380. I called USAA and was told sorry about your luck. 4 weeks later I got my 4Runner back but for 4 weeks...I had no vehicle. I used public transit and the good ole chevrolegs

    The hassle part is the only reason I haven’t switched but...being reminded of USAA’s shit makes me want to get off my ass and look elsewhere

    I have AAA, and I haven't had any issues, but I do pay quite a bit $200 a month for full coverage on both trucks

    That sucks Jason. @2BeersPlease .
    Being so new a frame and bed swap might be feasible. @Y2kbaja wasn't it about 13k for a frame swap. He had told me the price when I totaled mine.
    Most likely will be total loss.
    You will know in a day or so as geico works pretty quick.
