  • I bought a really cheap salvage Ford F250 Lariat Crew Cab, non powerstroke diesel, gasser at the salvage auction. It's an amazing deal on a truck and the repairs were so simple it only took me a few hours Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/samcracc/Email Me: [email protected]: SamcracPO Box 713Odessa, FL 33556

    Sam, I have a 2002 Super Duty that was nearly totaled due to an accident like this. Your front frame section is bent over because someone was driving from left to right in front of the vehicle when the vehicle hit it broadside. I'd guess the impact speed was in the 20-30mph range based on the damage. What you don't realize is that the frames on this year truck are high tensile steel and cannot be "pulled" on a frame machine. Ford typically sells front frame sections, there is a parting line on the frame behind the front wheels where the section comes off. The bill to repair this truck easily exceeds $15,000. You have to pull the engine and cab, then remove the front frame section, attach a replacement section, reset the engine and body, then do the mechanical work to repair the coolers up front, then reassemble the front end, align the axle, then get a 4 wheel alignment.
    But here's the kicker, since that's a high tensile frame, Ford probably doesn't authorize the frame to be pulled to get the "diamond" out of the frame, which means this is a full frame replacement. Some insurance companies will total a vehicle if it needs a front subframe replacement (Farmers) some won't (Nationwide), but ALL insurers will total a vehicle if it needs a frame replacement. Because you can't "pull" the diamond out of the frame (according to Ford), the vehicle needs a full frame replacement. That costs about $10k to swap the frame out. To repair my 2002 super duty with the front frame pushed over 4" inches was $12,900. This involved heating and pulling the frame with a frame machine, because the earlier F-350 and below Super Duty trucks have mild steel frames. The F-450 and above, all years, have high tensile steel frames.
    If you don't repair the frame correctly, it will tow miserably and when you come to a panic stop, the vehicle will crab due to the thrust misalignment of the axles. My truck still has a clean title because it was repaired and Nationwide didn't total it. A girl in a PT Cruiser pulled out in front of me while traveling 45mph.

    You’re misleading people about the ARV of a truck like this by comparing it to a diesel version.

    The Damage, The Winning Bid and the mileage make it an absolute win.

    You're not getting 35k for a '14 with a 6.2 gasser, just doesn't happen. 25-28k max.
