Yea its not too bad. I did stare at it in the garage today for about a half hour asking myself how dumb I am. Hopefully I can get it looking as good as it was.

One question for everyone about potential engine damage. When the truck was on its side the engine filled up with oil causing it to be hydrolocked. Afer troubleshooting for an hour on the trail we took out the spark plugs and when starting the truck oil shot out everywhere. After the oil was cleared out and the plugs were put back in the truck started okay but white smoked poured out of the exhaust for the next 10 or so miles. What is the possible engine damage that could have come from this, that I should get checked out? The truck made the 70 mile journey back home without a hitch and drove well for the 20 mins I drove it yesterday. What should I look out for?

If it truly hydrolocked you wouldn't be driving it. Excess oil in the bore is one thing, your remediation was the correct path to take.

On a brighter note you did say you wanted your truck to look like mine. At this rate you only need to roll it over about a half dozen more times and it will look just like my truck.

Here is a pic of the bypass trail I ran nicknamed "Cleghammer" That was good fun. Toyota snapped an axle half way up which made getting around him interesting.
