    Hail damage all over the car... or in extreme cases, flooding.

    depends...

    if it was flooded, it might have been a car you see on tv floating down a river. internals flodded with water = rust.

    hail = body work

    tree fell on car = body work.

    it really depends what happened

    Have the title checked, make sure it's CLEAR, not salvaged, not rebuild.

    Then look at the surface of the hood, and the roof, and the truck. Dimples are usually caused by hail. No biggie, jsut looks like doordings ALL over the car.

    if your insurance company will insure it then who cares as long as you get the car for cheap! hehehehe

    btw my friend had a fully loaded 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee they sold it a few years ago for 2500 bucks with under 100K becuase it had a rebuilt title "tree fell on it"
    their friend bought it "wish I did" and when he had the title changed to his name the rebuilt title went away... hmmmm lucky bastard anyways with the trans failing he sold it a few months ago for 7K

    I say if you like it buy it! you might get lucky
