I'm confused. Why would you want to do this? Surely your insurance will cover the cost of a new truck? If that is the case, you won't be allowed to removed the engine, as the truck will be the property of the insurance company, even if it is off to the scrapyard...

By the way, your username is 'moneybags2k9'....Does that mean that you wont have any money until atleast 2009?

If they've declared it "totalled", you either gotta give up the motor and take your check or you can keep it and get nothing from them.
