    I found this truck that has been wrecked. I am by no means a "body man" but I like to wrench on stuff. Does this truck look like it's worth fixing? I don't want it to be a beauty, but maybe a mud/trail truck? What's it worth to you guys? $3,000 is way too much, just wondering what ya'll would offer him?

    3000 is not so bad. considering you will probably spend another 2000.00 on used parts to repair(new factory parts are expensive) . i would try to get it for 2000
    do you have the op to look at it in person? i would look up dimensions and do a little measuring to see how badly the frame is bent, if it is.

    That is some rough damage- I would be curious as to what he did to end up with it like that. There could be alot of gremlins in the frame and suspension. If you are planning a complete rebuild to a mud/trail rig...I would go for 2Gs....maybe...

    I am about 30 minutes from where this guy is located, so yes I can go look at it. I used to work at a body shop as a cleanup guy, sand and prep for paint. I think this weekend(if he still has it) I am gonna take one of the guys that work for the shop I used to work at to look at the truck and see what he thinks.

    I wouldn't put the airbags back in unless I could get one dirt cheap, it won't be drove on the rode. I probably won't even tag/register it if I end up with it.
