I'm glad everyone is going to be ok.

Blazer looks totaled, I'd steer clear of any swap or rebuilds..

Don't even bother. I rebuilt my 95 Jimmy this year. When I bought it it was wrecked. But not nearly as bad as yours. I had to replace both fenders, hood, radiator frame, grill and bumper. That's cosmetic as far as I'm concerned because it's all bolt-on stuff. The problem is when you get to frame damage. Yours is far worse than mine. And I never really got the bumper mounts straight. I wouldn't be suprised if the subframe on yours is also bent. Then there's damage to your engine. I only had to replace the fan, radiator and water pump. Yours looks far more back.

Then we get back to your doors. You have damage not only to the front doors but rippling in the back. You'll have a heck of a time getting that front door to seal again, when it's replaced. But if you have damage to the doors, you'll probably have body warping too.

Um what happened? Looks like someone went through a red light. Are you getting insurance back for it. Because I have to agree, it's totalled. Don't worry about any swap outs. If anything get another one and use this for parts.

Oh, yeah, glad to hear everyone is ok.

Oh, ok sorry saw your post. Yeah, get the insurance and send it down the road. Don't even consider a rebuild for this corpse.

A prybar, body hammer and some body filler... naaa.
I would consider that vehicle to be totaled due to the fact that it's gonna cost more to fix properly than 50% of the worth of the vehicle.

Not trying to be a dick, but i love that pic of your dad with the blood on his shirt and the gauze on his head.

The girl is like "holy **** oh my god!" but your dad is just like "whatever im a man i dont give a ****, just get me out of this ****hole"
