the truck has to pass a dot inspection save all recepts in new mexico you can drive a salvage auto but some states requier you to turn in the plates to salvage it so you need to talk to your local dmv

Well, they're gonna give me $6783 and let me keep it, and I don't even have to do a salvage title.

Sweetness, so how do you plan on going about the repair process?

Replace the mechanical components, i.e. the knuckle, hub, caliper, ball joints, tie rod, and heater box, and then remove the fender bumper and bed, wire up some lights, and drive it like that until I can get the rest fixed.

Might as well trim the inner fenders and notch the frame while I have it all apart, maybe some trailer fenders in the front......

Glad you got to keep your truck and look forward to seeing pics of the rebuild. Definitely was a nice lookin 05 and I'm sure it'll be even nicer once its redone.

As for swerving or not swerving, when its your life or a rodent/small animals I'll choose my life and/or my passenger life. Been there and hitting the dog was much better then possibly rolling down a hill into a river.

Also I have a question for who said that in Oregon when you hit a dog the drivers always at fault. At fault for what? Is it a crime to accidentally kill an animal? vehicular dog-slaughter...haha
