Buy a new one, put your mind at rest. I'd be sending it down the road without me in it. But that's just me. Sucks to hear about it man.

My $0.02, let Ford go through it. These motors have been out long enough that a good diesel mechanic should be able to see signs as they take stuff apart. Once they start removing the damaged stuff, that should show further damage.

Do you know if they have to pull the cab? I would hope so because they should be able to see alot if the cab is off.

And just an fyi, customer pay jobs do not show up in OASIS. They will only show at the dealer the work is done at. If your buddy at the autobody doesn't let carfax know, there really won't be a record of the accident in regards to the truck.

Let Ford fix it and then decide. You would be out your deductible.

It's a mechanical thing, these things can be fixed to new. I don't think the frame is bent, which is the biggest thing in my opinion.

Demand OEM parts though...

Man, it is really east to forget to put the truck in park sometimes. It would stink if it happened to roll into a nearby lake.........

I don't condone any type of insurance fraud.

What all was damaged? I don't see how that tree falling on it would make it unreliable in the future, unless it was running when the tree fell on it.

You have a point about the damage. I don't think any vehicle engine is designed to take that impact force. The probability for latent damage is pretty high.

Pm me if you want the full damage write-up.

No friends on this side of the country.

Don't think they have to take the cab off. Though they do have take apart the whole inside of the cab to weld a new piece of the sub-frame that surrounds the engine and hold on the fender (pic 3 above).

get it fixed 100% then go to dealer and trade it on another truck or for even more fun let find the truck you want then let your wife go trade it dealer figure out most you would pay differance and set it up threw your finance company/credit union send her with a check +_ a little. they will never know the difference and be glad to make the sale to a woman.

Ask about depreciated value also.

On a side note most of the major crashed vehicles I have bought over they years have been trouble free.
