rebuild my rolled centurion crew cab?

bran new to this forum. I just rolled my 97f350 crew cab 4x4 and i have two days to tell the insurance if i want to buy the truck back.

history of the truck- its only got 107,000 miles and i have all the receipts from the last 70,000 miles. no rust one of the cleanest 7.3's ive seen (was). it also has the centurion package with leather seats and pwr sliding rear window special rear bumper. all rebuilt front end, ball joints, tie rods ext. its never towed anything heavy.doest leak any fuilds or burn any.

they want 2500 to buy it back and i might be able to get a running donor 7.3 crew cab for 1300 with everything i would need except the bed. was thinking of swapping cabs from donor truck onto my chassis with my interior. i don't have the time to do most the work right now so i would have to pay a body shop to do most of it which would would include paint. after buying both trucks i would have 10,000 left from insurance to do the rebuild.

is this worth doing or should i cut my losses. just having a hard time letting this low miles and clean history truck go.

Actually i noticed you're only about 3 hours from me. im straight east of you on the IL/WI border and 5 miles off the lake.

I could probably help a lot with this if you need help, or do work for this. or find ya parts! i know someone with a VERY clean 97 F350 CCLB with a 460 in it.

thanks. from what ive been trying to read up on it seems like cab swaps are a lot easier when they are both diesels because of the wiring so not sure if the 460 would be the easiest but u might now more than me. thanks for the reply

Re: rebuild my rolled centurion crew cab?

I vote keep it. BUT if you decide not to I'll buy it from you. I need a donor for a ccsb project.
