It's all about who you know. Body shops LOVE to say something is more broke than it truly is. I would need to pull the front clip off and take the measurements myself before I would make the determination on what to do with the truck. Judging by your uncertainty about fixing it, you may just want to sell it complete and offload it. Parting it out can be an absolute pain in the rear.

If I part it out which I can do no problem with the tools I have I could get a decent chunk of money out of it. Selling right out may be worth the time not spent dicking with it though. I would lovee to take the project on and fix it all myself but with my lack of tools and connections in phoenix it may be to much of a hassle. If I were back home in indiana id be fixing it for sure.

I will try to post better pics for you all whenever I can get to a computer to do so.

Thanks for all the advice and opinions coming, I really appreciate it.

Some more...

As you can see the two front Frame Beams/Support Bars are bent and that is the biggest issue. What can be done to fix/replace these but keep the radiator support and the front of the body straight??

Everything else should be an easy fix... Bend the fender supports back straight. New Radiator support welded in and a bunch of cosmetic crap from there.

Let me know your thoughts. Thanks everybody.

Get a cost for the parts to fix it, plus fix it your self, just think of the knowledge that you will learn by doing it yourself, its alot of work but not that hard to swap a frame especially on a truck.

for the frame you would either have to go to a jy and get a frame from them or find someone with a frame rig that will pull the frame back straight.... personally i would find one at a jy and get it all clean and everything and spray it black to protect from rust....
