I am a long time member on FTE and spent most of the past 5 years on the 6.4L forum. In Feb my truck was hit and called a total loss by the GEICO adjuster. I didn't believe then and I don't believe now that the truck should have been a total. I had a lot of after market money in it and it was set for a long haul.
The truck was auctioned on the IAA (insurance automobile auction, I think) site on May 20th. I joined their web site to try and track it but I can't get who the winning bidder was, which is what I want. I've tried running the vin in lots of different ways but nothing shows up after that auction. Truck should now have a "rebuildable" florida title but I think that can be cleaned somehow.
Truck is a DRW Crew Cab, White over gray with gray lariat interior. Deleted, but I kept the tuner. 77,200 or so miles. Truck was incorrectly listed as a gasser on their auction list.
What's up? Missing your 6.4L even when driving your new 6.7L? Is that like checking up on an ex-girlfriend? Are you going to sock the new owner in the eye if he does her wrong?
Glad to see you're checking in on the forum. I'm a newbie to diesel and really appreciated the info and opinions you provided while reading a bunch of your posts. If you get a chance check in again from time to time to keep us straight.
Yeah, I miss it. But I also miss the 25K bucks I had to add to the pot to get the 6.7L. I'm really just very courious to see what happens to the truck. I believe it will be rebuilt for 10 grand or less and then sold. But maybe I'm wrong, and if so I'd like to know it. I still have some negoiating to do.
Here in the southeast it is no secret that most 'totaled' cars/trucks are either sent to Alabama or Tennessee, re-titled and sent back after they are repaired. It's easier to get a 'salvage' title in those states, but once it comes back into GA, it is not always titled as "salvaged".
