X2. I was wanting to go Hemi but now that 4bt is enticing me. Besides if you went deep enough to hydrolock then electronics are probably screwed too, right?

Sorry to here about the damage but there's the whole lemons into lemonade thing :D

They totalled it for just the engine? That sucks, I'd buy it back!

Really?!? They decided to total for $21k vs putting in a new engine? No wonder our collective rates are so high...

Are you going to be able to pull off your new Toyos and anything else (swap with stock) before/if you turn in?

$5000 to $7000 for a tow slut, $1000 to $2000 for a trailer and $5000 to $10000 for a trail rig and you got a grand or more leftover. That's what I'd do
