If they do total me, I'll just scrounge some junkyard bumpers and install them myself. Probably would end up needing to get some stuff resprayed (can't imagine it's easy to find limited fat lip bumpers in good condition and in thundercloud), but I don't think there's any way the total cost would exceed the value of the vehicle.
If they are planning on repairing to full factory specs (which is what I would expect for an accident that isn't your fault), you have to add parts, labor and paint (painted front/rear bumpers = blending with other panels, so half your truck will get painted). It also looks like there was some denting to the hatch. I would expect some damage behind the rear bumper.

I got ~$800 payout for a front bumper cover a couple years ago. Chrome, no damage to the crash reinforcement behind it, so truly all bolt on.

Blue book on your truck is less than its actually worth, and cost to repair this at a professional body shop is probably at least twice what you are thinking. That's why I say totaled, sadly.

If you can find the right parts and bolt them on yourself (with small tweaks as necessary), you can get it back up and running and looking good for a reasonable price...

Well I gotta give credit to @phattyduck for calling it. I just got word that the 4Runner is totaled. Still waiting for numbers on the payout. Right now Iím leaning hard towards keeping it. Iím going through my insurance now, but USAA (the other driverís insurance) offered 3200 for buy back or 5200 if they kept it.

Thereís some damage I didnít notice when I looked at it after the accident. The hatch has a slight pinch in it, but I fine leaving it as is. The floor is buckled where the brackets attach (Also, why the hell does the bumper attached to the floor? Seems like a design flaw) but I assume I can bang that out. Looks like I need to replace two pieces of the front bumper and a good bit of the back.







I pulled the part #s from the estimate:

Front Bumper
Reinforcement 12 5202135020
Valance Panel 1d 5391135912

Rear Bumper
Face Bar 1a 5210535915
Upper Plate 7 5215935040
RT Extension 9a 5210635901
LT Extension 10b 5210735901
RT Mount arm 5 5201535020
LT Mount arm 6 5201635020
Face Bar Seal 3 5259135010
Face Bar Seal 4 5259235010

Anyone got a lead on a front and rear bumper in Thundercloud? I got some time over the next two weekends and Iím not opposed to a road trip. Or would it be feasible to source of bumper of any color and pay to get it repainted?

Seems a real shame that this truckís gonna have a salvaged title when I can fix it myself for a few hundred bucks and a good dayís work. Iíd rather have had the other driver cut me a check for a grand and never gotten insurance involved in the first place.

Well, I gave up on replacing the bumpers. The cost wasn't worth the effort. A couple weekends ago we took off the rear and banged it back into shape pretty decent. I might address the front sometime later, but it doesn't look so bad right now.



Finally got the Andy Mod 2.0 with TRAC button done, per @MStudt 's instructions. It was a little nerve wracking (my first foray into messing with wiring) but straight foward enough.
