to fix or repair?

As a result of our lovely April blizzard and the college age drivers, my Pickup got t-boned going through an intersection. I talked to the insurance guys today, and my buddy who owns the body shop, it's basically right on the cusp of totaled (she hit me square on the cab... got both doors, cab corner, running board and the bed) he told me he could put the numbers in a little high, total it out, or low-ball it and hopefully keep it in the repairable range... I love my truck, it has 310,000 on it and I just spent over $5k on it last fall... I know there has been a ton of improvements since mine was rolled out in 97, and I love the newer trucks (I already have the newer Tailgate and Taillights...) But I'm happy to not have too large of a truck payment at this time in my life... what do you guys think? strip my truck down and total it out, try to find another 7.3 or later 6.0? or have mine repaired?

Total it, get more insurance money, buy it back, fix it.
