I dont think you fully understand the title this vehicle has got, let me explain in layman's terms

If you went shopping for a chair that cost $100. and right next to it the identical chair $40. but the sticker said all 4 legs were broken at one point but now glued together and declared safe... THATS SALVAGE...how safe would you feel sitting on it, never mind going down the hwy at 70 mph.

Life is more important than saving a few bucks.

It probably isn't worth it, but at least find out what happened in the truck's past. It sounds like the previous owner wrecked while towing or something.
