Uhh, you can claim a blown motor insurance? I've never heard of that before.

How'd you blow the motor? How many miles were on it? What mods did you do to it? Just buy another motor and slap it in there.

I believe if you have full coverage insurance and you pay the deductable, there is a way with some insurance companies that they will pay a shop to install another engine. My brother in law did it in his rubicon

Oh, didn't realize you hydrolocked it. There wasn't much detail in your first post.

I'd let insurance total it and go buy myself another one. Water gets everywhere in your wiring harness causing corrosion. Later on down the road that will leave you chasing electrical gremlins forever.

How much $$$ is the buyback? Buy back the truck, put in that Phoenix craigslist motor, immediately sell truck and buy yourself another one.

I wouldn't keep a flooded truck.

How much money is the insurance company going to give you for the truck?
How much money does the insurance company want for the buyback?
