You might be ok with driving a rebuilt POS, but I'd be really surprised if this one gets an overhaul.
===================================
Well Sir John...............not to be a wizeazz, but howbout postin some pics of all this damage?

I doubt it got the engine or the firewall, maybe the radiator & fan, and also doubt it hurt the A-arms. CV's? Ain't got any on a 2wd Edge!

I deal with body shops on a daily basis, and lookin at the little bit of damage in those pics, that truck didn't hit that hard into that tree.

You ask us to help the guy out, well if the trucks fixable, why strip it? I doubt the insurance company totals it, but if they do, and he can buy it back from them for say $500-1000, then fix it for less than $1000, again, why strip it?

I've got one with the same damage sittin beside my garage, was hit similar in the front, but also was hit in RR hard enough to shear the axle.
$250 frame work, bought a parts truck for $200, NEW radiator support & header panel, and it's driveable.

When bought>






Put donor rearend in>


Off to frame shop>


Back from frame shop who installed NEW radiator support, reinstalled RF fender & donor hood>


Donor box>


Just requires a little bit of initiative. UNLESS your one of these guys like my Dad, that won't even look at a salvage titled vehicle, and are ANAL bout it...................

Final word I'm getting from him is that it is a loss of the vehicle.

As for the CV remark, entirely my mistake. I accept full liability for my incorrect statement.

and if my 19 year old ass can rebuild a truck that looked a hell of a lot worse then that then you shouldnt have any problem and if you think about its still going to be tons cheaper then a new truck and if you buy it back if you did insurance you should have enough to fix it and pocket the extra money

if you think about it once you rebuild it its actually better then it was before because it has all new parts that will last another 40k+ miles

Basically what I'm saying is if you rebuilt that truck you'd have a POS.
Now, go sit in the corner like a bad little smart ass 19 year old.
==========================================
You pop off at this kid like you know him or somethin?

When I was 19, I'd worked as a mechanic for 3yrs, built 4 hot rods, and had a Wife with baby on the way, AND I had just enlisted in the USAF..........and my military career ended in 1992, and I've owned over 90 vehicles...........EXPERIENCED enough for ya?

So this kid could have a helluva lotta experience there Sir John.

BTW: Your profile says "I'm old".....just how old is ya?

update truck is totaled the front passanger suspension is toast the frame is bent in 3 different places and the interior got messed up enough form the wreck the dash actually came apart the truck already had a salvaged title so that may explain how the dash just decided to come apart yes i could fix it but it would be more that i have in it now or at least close
