Default Well, they totaled my truck

They told me late yesterday. I'm looking to buy it back at rebuild it myself. The adjuster mentioned a kit for rear frame repair. Anyone have any idea where one would go about finding something like that?

Oh man that is awful. It looks like she hit the hitch which caused the frame bend. Do you think it would've bent if the hitch had not been on the truck?

I don't think it would have been as bad.

I've always left mine on thinking it would be some protection but I think you have proof that it can make the damage worse depending on the strike. I would be devastated if mine got hit like that. . . I'll keep an eye out for a bed around here.

How bad is the frame bent? I think it looks worse in the pic than what it is

Basically, it's bent from the shackles back.
