    The insurance is going to fix my truck and not total it. Apperently it is worth too much to total, 27,700. And it has 11,000 in damage, he needed 4,000 more to total it.

    The local toyota dealer also has a very good body shop so it'll get all new toyota parts and panels there. They fixed a fender bender on the same truck last fall (not my fault) and it turned out perfect, so I have faith this one will turn out the same.

    I've been pretty sick over the whole ordeal, so I just want to get it all over with and done. Not a big fan of dealing with insurance company's and rental company's...

    Here is a pic, there are more in my gallery.

    Wow, I'm pretty suprized that's only 11k in damage. Be sure to take photos of everything you can, every angle, any scuffs on the wheels, anything. Even though it's a reputable shop (hard to find these days and glad you got one), I'd still just keep all the documentation you can and make sure it comes back like new. Hopefully you'll get a decent turn around time, but again one of those better slow and correct than fast and half assed deals...

    That sucks man. I had a storm with some golfball stuff pass just north of me, but it did some damage to my uncles place.

    Good luck with getting that fixed, and drive that rental car like you stole it.

    Its only 11k because they aren't even going to try to fix the panels. Its just a straight replacement and paint.

    That'd make me totally ILL!

    Dude, that just sucks royally. I'm glad you're getting it fixed, but what a pain in the ass.

    I hope you weren't sitting inside the house watching the truck while it was happening.... Oh my gawd... I'd throw-up if that was my truck.

    I wonder if you could get them to swap in a sport hood or aftermarket fenders. If you want to do anytype of body mod now would be the ideal time to think about it

    Thanks for the update. I was expecting a lot more than 11k. Our "Best body shop in the area" quoted me 2k just to replace and paint the rear bumper on my wife's Liberty. One panel, not 15 or so.

    I was in the truck when it was happening!!!

    As we ran from the woods it started downpouring. We jumped in the truck and it started hailing. I tried to drive the truck and leave, but it was raining/hailing so hard we couldn't see anything. Just sat there and took it. Luckily the windsheild didn't cave in like some other vehicles. There were probably 200 vehicles and 100 trailer campers there.

    Here in BubbaLand (central Texas), we have had so many killer hailstorms that people are just pocketing the cash and driving the cars with the dents. In some areas it's like 20% of the cars.

    It's actually gotten sort of chic. The damage is fun to compare and makes exterior maintenance pointless... :cool:

    Wow what a headache! I'm glad everything is getting fixed, and hopefully it won't be too bad dealing with the insurance!
