Default Gone...

Well so much for my truck. I hit a mailbox and two tree. My trucks front end and whole driver side is bent all the to hell. The frame is not bent. Does anybody have any idea what a body shop would charge to fix all this.

sorry to hear that man, but its going to be impossible for anyone on here to tell you how much a shop is going to charge to fix it without pics and a better description of the damage. is it drivable?

How? And yeah, pictures might help. Just saying "my truck is dented, how much will it cost" isn't going to get you far.

i know... it happend last night. i am going to get pictured today. not driveable. front left end is all screwed up. Drivers side door won't close. But the frame was not bent, engine, transmission, and axles are fine. I will get pictures today. ITs going to need a whole new front end though. Once that and the door gets fixed it will be driveable.

Must have been small trees to not at least 'tweak' the frame. Good luck in whatever direction you go with it.

since the lack of saying how it happened and him goin about paying for it without insurence company.. my guess is that alcohol was involved. but i'm just guessing. if not, i appologize. but it sure as hell looks that way buddy.

Probably fixable, but I doubt that insurance will pay for it. I'm gonna guess in excess of $5K in damages there.

I would say screw a body shop for half the price go to a scrap yard and pic out the parts. But that much damage to the front like that the rim has to be bent thats an aluminum rim and its a soft metal. How do you know for a fact there is no frame damage I would get that double checked for sure.
