wyosmoke is on a distinguished road

Well the State Farm Estimate is in. It seems fairly comprehensive and here are the highlights.

77 hrs sheet metal replace/repair. 34 hrs paint,(no PDR, complete repaint) $2700 in new parts (OEM).

They cut me a check for $8765.00. I guess thats what I expected, now the hard question

Keep my 2006(diesel) and get rid of the new truck(hemi)?!? ( I should break even or make a few bucks)
Or, get the repairs done and hope for the best?(sell the 06)

I am leaning towards keeping the 06,(maybe with a few upgrades) and saving for another year and order a new truck from dodge (exactly the way I want it)

One last question, If I sell the new truck, will I need to pay taxes and title before I can sell it? I purchased it barley used,it had 900 miles and the previous owner traded for a diesel

Thanks Guys!
