    I would have someone inspect it to see if the engine and supercharger still work right. It depends on how bad he rolled the truck and at what speed he was going when it rolled. There could be hairline or bigger fractures all over the place.

    I rolled my 01 (someone tboned me) the engine was completely untouched. It started right up! Too bad it was totaled and the frame was broken. What does the engine compartment look like? Is it in good shape?

    I would buy it. Even if the supercharger was bad you can have them rebuilt for around a grand. You would still be several thousand short of buying a brand new supercharger.
