So if you were able to do this, why didn't you try to convince the ins co not to total it or at least you know how to manipulate the estimates to save it from the black ball known as "Salvage Repair"?

i wasnt the one that wrecked the truck, it was already totalled. i actually found the truck on craigslist and purchased it from the salvage yard that posted the add. i got my ranger the same way back in 2002, it was also a salvage total. its a way for me to get a vehicles cheap. the insurance companys sell the totalled vehicles to the salvage yards that either part them out or sell them whole depending on the damage. some even have clear titles instead of salvage titles. the salvage title isnt a concern to me becuase i dont by these to sell. i will own this truck untill the wheels fall off ha ha.
