Hey,

A mechanic dropped my 2009 Ford F350 (2 door long box), off the front end of a hoist send it crashing head first into the concrete floor below, it was up 6 ft high.

How much damage in my engine should I expect- yah there's body work, but its the truck that does the work, not a cracked up rocker panel and the doors. it is worth me keeping and repairing as it breaks apart, or should I consider it a write off? I'm planning my winter work now, so I got to be prepared for either serious mechanical work, or put money on a new truck now.

Its only got 200KM on it and is a great work truck otherwise.

Much appreciated your thoughts for all.

His insurance is paying I presume?
They might total it, but you might be able to keep it anyway. Depending on the pay off, I'd be inclined to walk away.

What engine?

I'd say something else, but am in the process of buying another Furd. lol Technically a Super Doodie, but it has a real engine, transmission and frame.

6' straight down onto concrete, I'm thinking a lot more damage than just body work

Edit: looks like it would have been traveling at about 13 MPH at impact. I know a guy that could easily outrun that in 100 feet so maybe not that totaled after all.
