100% unibody. My bro used to work at an auto body shop. Saw one come in with a bent bumper, guy wasn't paying attention and backed into a concrete divider, not even that bad, just looked bent upward a bit, in anything else could have just replaced the bumper but the whole body twisted. Truck got written off, and the guy bought his 99 in 2001 for like $18,000 and got $9500 back.


oh, and its a ford. unless it's a classic don't even bother. They make them cheaper than a kia or hyundai now.
