    So get this...Monday, which so happened to be my birthday, i was hit by some guy who ran a red light!!! So far i havent heard anything back from the insurance company about if my taco is totaled for sure but its looking that way. I took pictures and im gonna put them up.
    Im so angry. It was/is my first car ever and i love it more than anything. if its wrecked i dont know what im going to do.
    It had a winch, a brush guard, off road lights, seat covers, tool box, linex, sidesteps, cb set up, and a 3 inch lift....it was my baby.
    I cant help but think the worst and im half wanting to burst into tears and half wanting to punch a wall....

    Sorry i just needed to vent....its hurts.
    What do yall think? Totaled?

    Given it's age and the damage, it looks totaled for sure. :(

    It's definitely fixable, assuming there's no frame damage. But from an insurance standpoint, it looks totaled.

    It looks like it'll be totaled. Sorry for your loss. I know if some idiot ran a redlight and totaled my '05 I'd be fairly upset.

    On the bright side, your not injured and insurance will probably get you another truck.

    Wow, I'm sorry.. But look at the bright side, at least your okay.. A truck can be replaced but your life cant! Just take all the aftermarket parts off and get another one!

    You'd be better off having insurance help you out getting a new one. With damage like that, it'll never drive the same.

    At least you are okay man! It depends if the frame is damaged. The truck is getting old so It is a toss up.

    actually my idea for if they total it is get a sports car and then buy a 1992 yota pick up...something to hunt in. and then use the sports car as a daily driver.

    well in the end, all that matters is your fine, that said, sorry about your truck, looks totalled based on age/damage, i remember my first truck and the sentimental value that went with it.
