Default Rebuild or scrap? 02 blazer

Ok, I was driving a 2002 Blazer back and forth to work till I got my little Nissan Maxima fixed, and well a few days ago I was driving and I heard the ABS kick in when I hit the breaks, well there was a truck in front of me that slowed down quickly, so I hit the breaks pretty hard, and when I did I heard a pop and the truck pulled to the left (into the on coming lane), and I hit a car head on... The blazer was still running when I came to from the air bags going off, so I know it still runs.

What I'm wondering is, do you guys think I should try and fix the truck? I only have PLPD on the truck, so the insurance will not even talk about replacing it. haha. But, I think all it "should" need to be a drive able truck again is, front clip, radiator, grill, lights, bumber (it needed one anyway), hood, and the upper control arm (I believe that's what bent on the drivers side). I can get the parts for cheap (my grandparents have 4 parts blazer's/jimmy's)

The truck only has 168,000 on it, and it runs damn good. (not a single misfire in the truck) I'm gonna try to post a picture of it, but I'm not sure how its gonna come out. I only have one at the moment. (my Droid broke and I'm stuck using a crappy IPhone 4.)

Your truck sadly is done. Look at the A pillar misalignment
