My fiance got rear-ended last week while stopped at a cross walk. This was the result:

35178
35179

It's a 99 4Runner with 163,xxx miles on it. Runs great except for a little rough idle on first start. Recent work includes new battery terminals, new MAF sensor, new fuel filter, new spark plugs and new spark plug wiring, left rear wheel bearing overhaul, new rear brake shoes and pads.

We are heart-broken that the insurance company declared it a total loss. The tailgate, bumper, and left rear inner and outer quarter panels all need to be replaced. It is also possible it has frame damage.

So, we are wondering if anyone wants to buy it from us rather than sending it off to the salvage yard. All offers will be entertained. Here's some more pics:

If you are interested in selling the hood and passenger front fender, let me know, my clearcoat is starting to fade and peel. Interested in some interior stuff, too, if you are parting out. Thanks, John

We won't be able to part it out ourselves. Hoping to get someone to buy the whole thing from us. We think the insurance company will let us have it for a little over $1400, so, if we can get $1500 or more for it, we'd be psyched.

Man, $1400 is about the cheapest, already dinged, cut some fenders, add big tires, hammer the gas & have a blast toy... Are you sure you want to let it go? Think of all the snow runs, pin stripping, etc.

I'd love to do that, but I'm currently unemployed and my fiancÚ is under-employed. To say that this was a bad time for her car to be totaled would be a huge understatement.

Please let me know if someone does end up parting it out, I would be very interested in the front buckets and maybe the wheels & tires to help offset the price. I might also know someone who needs the roof rack.

Why not stick a taillight in it, and drive it until you can either fix it, or find a deal to get it fixed? Not ideal, I realize, but you'll lose a lot selling it off.

Perhaps you have a frame shop tweak the frame back in the meantime, and do an alignment, to help preserve the tires.

I have a same color/year rear bumper you can have, mudflaps and all. Pretty sure I have a hitch, too.
