OP the biggest fight your going to have is getting a fair diminish value for your truck as there is no technical standard way to determine diminish value. With that said, be prepared for the insurance company to low ball you at first.

As others have mention you might have to get a lawyer involved. It seems they are going to repair the truck which isnt the problem, the problem is going to be what deemed as fair compensation for the diminish value lost to the truck now that is has a major accident showing on carfax.

Your truck with low miles likely would have sold from high 20's to low 30's in the current market. It sucks this happen.

Are you able to talk about what happen when your mechanic test drove the truck?

I took the truck to a quality body shop who took it apart and came up with an estimate of $19,100 to repair. So it looks like it may be a total loss. The owner of the shop was on vacation when his employee wrecked the truck. I have known the owner for at least 15 years and have taken several vehicles to him over the years (first time for the SRT though). After the accident, the owner wouldn't return my repeated calls and I had to show up early on a Monday morning to speak with him. He was not helpful. I talked to a witness of the accident who said the employee was smoking the rear tires and lost control and hit a telephone pole and cable power box. I have been in contact with a lawyer. I hate to go down that road, but I think it will be in my best interests. I appreciate all the sound advice.
