that'll buff out

If you're on a PC, click full screen on the video, and press ctrl + alt + left arrow.

and when it's over press ctrl + alt + up arrow, or you'll be pretty confused

I'm looking for any useful advice from anyone attempting similar reconstruction. Any advice on parts sourcing, upgrades, pitfalls, time frame... Any advice really would be helpful.

IMHO until you have the truck in your possession and all the parts examined personally, you won't know what you'll need.

The energy from the collision could have bent every single panel in subtle ways that are difficult to repair. That roof, for example, could be kinked very slightly up an inch in the corner, and every part could be deformed elastically in three dimensions, pulled in ways that make it impossible to reuse the part.

Or most parts will be untouched and reusable. You won't know until you get the truck back.

I'm with everyone else who says it's rebuildable. It's totally rebuildable, in my opinion. But I don't think that's the question you're asking.

I would want to keep it for all of the small stuff like nuts and bolts that will nickel and dime you to death while doing a rebuild.

Exactly.

I bet you'll find that every body panel is destroyed by an impact that severe.

While the front may not look bad in a screen shot, I would bet every piece is distorted and unusable.

Of course, anything can be rebuilt with enough time and money thrown at it.
