Well my truck was rear ended in park and moved about thirty feet, it was in park without the p-brake on. 01 350 cclb srw 7.3 auto lariat. Estimate on repairs is 8600$. My ?'s are could thes three items be damaged from the wreck? It started fine and I had to reverse it off of a retaining wall that the rf tire caught that broke the internals of the steering gear box. I know that there is a transmission engineer on here maybe he can chime in on this. I think I can post pictures at my 25th post got pics of his car too. Will post pics soon. Thanks adding some pics of the carnige. The fist pic of the steps and hand rail is where my truck was parked and the second is where it came to rest.

Reason: adding pics
they can be damaged. i just talked to a guy in tx he got rearended and told me the ins put a new motor in his truck and they called him and wanted him to come down to look at the transfer case so he was thinking its broke too
Well like Mark said an on site inspection is the only real way to tell. But can you see any damage under the truck? Is the trans mount still centered? Any damage to trans or transfer case ? What does the drive shaft look like?
But by looking at the photos it does look like there is frame damage. What were they planning on doing with the frame? Make sure it goes to a body shop that has a frame machine and a measuring system that can give you a print out of before and after repairs. Machines like Shark, Chief's Velocity or CarOtronic. Trust me when I say you don't want some hillbilly pulling your frame and using a tape measure to see if it is in specs.
Crap this really bothers me, the bs is supposed to be very good. They did a great job on my cobra but it was minor damage. I just hate this cause I had waited a long time for this truck and it was a nice one. I'll do a visual inspection tomorrow see if I can get po'd any further. Thanks
get more "quotes". i could'nt imagine with it being in park, that it didnt screw something up. heck, i drove a mile to the first exit on a flat (p/s rear), and from that, the diff was all screwed up. Felt as though it was binding up, once i put the same size spare on.....anyway, good luck man, hope it works out for ya
