dodge ram 1500?

so they offered me a 2002 dodge ram 4 doors 1500 for 2000$ dollars it has a messed up fender and a few bullet holes threw her when they tried to get the truck back. the motor has been rebuilt less than a 100 miles ago and dash is all cracked should i buy her fix her up and resale her to pay off the stang or keep her fixed up to have a truck? what do u guys think and how much do u think paint would cost to re-due her. also which colors tend to be cheaper to paint . leme get home and i will post pics

Bullet holes? Ah,ok... When you get some pics up and can help with estimates on repairs... But don't do red, on average it's the most expensive color....

lol yes bullet holes just say that truck has been threw alot . it managed to get stolen go to mexico for a few months used by the cartel in who knows what i even found a ski mask in the back. but now its made it way back home after causing alot of damage in mexico according to the cops. the car made it to mexico in less than 4 minutes after they stole it. and they wrecked it trying to run while the federales or the military in mexico shot at them till they crashed and driver flew into the windshield. leme wait for those pics lol

dodge ram 1500?

Honestly I'd walk away from that.
But it is a repairable truck. I don't think you'd get your money's worth out of it, if you bought to resale. So if you buy it just keep it as a truck. From what I'm seeing I think some things can be repaired. The doors, for one can be repaired, and the dent in the tail gate. But the bed needs replaced and the front bumper cover. As for paint just talk with local body shops and see what they'd charge. But anything under a grand will most likely look bad. Just to forewarn you.
I'd go to some junkyards and see if you can buy some replacement body pieces for it, it'd be cheaper than buying brand new body panels.
Was there any frame damage?

none at all frame is good she and fires up nice motor is new . suposably they hit a a a few cars running and a wooden pole .....then again who wouldnt when there shooting at u so what basical cost the most is the bed in the back by the gas tank cause the bumper i can remove and beat straight myself but like the holes need bondo and idk if that panel is the whole back bed or just the rear left quarter panel? how much would replacement fenders and such cost without the paint job?

A skin is around $550, but total repairs (depending on quality) will be close to $2000, including paint. And yes bondo would be used, but A LOT of it will be needed. Another thing to look into is rhino lining the bed. I did it to my truck, best investment I ever made, 8 years and still looks new.

Bro I think it's time to move...
I don't think it's totaled, but you couldn't get your money's worth out of it, if you sold it. It's just they aren't worth anything. It's kinda like the sn95 gt it's a great car, but they aren't worth much, same goes for the truck. If you bought it I think it could serve you well, But it would be the lowest one on the ladder.
