what model do you have? There are several factors involved. Most of all I would ask where was the major damage on your totaled vehicle? If it was around the engine area, don't even think about it.

also need to know about the mileage on the engine you are planning to use? Also have you done a great deal of towing?

No!!! Pick a 2006-2008 model for plug & play.
