Nope its not even close to totalling. Only a 12k repair so far. His setup is the same as mine.. 35s on 20's with a leveling kit. Only his wheels have a different backspace than mine. It took about three hours to get all the interior out doing it in an organized clean way. Took the dash guy about 45 minutes to get the dash out. I have prob. 8-9 hours in it so far. Oh and no one was hurt. They pretty much saw the tree coming at them and braced for it. I'll post more pics as I go along until its done.
