2017 GMC Canyon Collision Rebuild

2017 GMC Canyon SLE front end collision at 4k miles. Figured some of you may be interested in the pics. First damage photos are from Copart auction. Winning bidder was a dealer who specializes in salvage rebuildables. Second set of damage photos are after they did a bit of pulling and suspension rebuild work to get it rolling again. Last set of pics are post-rebuild (with a few remaining details left to finish). A Denali grill was used, in addition to adding the chrome skid plate. Also swapped the 17" SLE wheels for Denali NTO wheels. Still to come is front tint and level kit.

Put on a painted bumper and some Denali names and you could fool even a Denali owner on the outside.

Donít forget the exhaust tip.

Nice job!

Ha! I won't stoop to the level of putting the false Denali nameplate on...once you step inside, you won't be fooled.

It's still de-badged on the doors right now, have been waiting for those "Canyon" badges to come in from order. However, the badgeless look on the sides is growing on me now, so we'll see if I actually end up putting them back on.

Yes sir, that's a twin. What's the story with yours? I didn't find a thread anywhere, if you had one. Were you able to save that front left frame rail?

I have been watching auctions on Copart for over a year now, looking for a bike that I like, and feel itís still a good price. Itís tuff to buy them that cheap. I would be curious as to how much the acution ended for, and how much the fees were

The GMC dealer ordered it for me. Parts invoice is showing 84260324 with a list price of $695. Online searches will return options for less.

I have found some salvage Denali grille's on car-part.com, but they are usually part of the full front end assembly and the recycler doesn't want to part out just the grille.

If GM can do it you can Lol!

As long as you do not try to sell it as a Denali there is no sin. The muscle car market is full of clones anymore and even sold as clones they still have a following.

To be honest I had considered taking off my Emblems as I like the shaved look. I did it to my Sonoma.

Dang! That look under the hood really tells the tale. How is the truck running for you? Have you detected any residual problems? Looks dang good! (and I like the de-badged look too)

I am surprised they could economically rebuild that. Just the cost of replacing the airbags alone would be very high, and the front end hit with possible damage to the engine is a potential can of worms too. It takes skill to wade into it and do that job right on an expensive vehicle like a new Canyon. For insurance purposes, estimating damage is done at "retail" and the vehicles are totaled, but a good shop that is not busy (hard to find) can complete the repairs for a lot less.

There is a whole cottage industry of back alley shops working out of rented business park garages that fix older vehicles. Usually the folks don't speak English, and the work is, um, questionable. My kid wrecked her '98 Toyota, sold it for $500 to such an operation. Kinda glad actually, that vehicle had a lot of life left in it, and somebody will keep driving it, and I got the wrecked car out of my garage.

Back in '92, I picked up a '91 Ford Ranger 4x4 with the 4.0V6 for 5K at a salvage auction. The truck was hit on the passenger side and only had 2,500 miles. A buddy was a Chevy Dealer's body shop manager, we worked on it and got it back on the road cheap. Painted it artic white instead of the puke vanilla off white it came with, put some flares on it, tinted the windows, and drove it for 140,000 trouble free miles, and sold it for 3K after 11 years. Good times

@Duken4evr, The airbags list at $750 a pop. This one needed 3-- wheel bag and both curtain bags. SRS system locked up both front seat belts, so those needed replaced as well. There are some companies that you can mail the belts to, to be unlocked, which would save money, but I did not go that route.

If you took the time and slowly gathered recycled parts from other canyons, you really can save a lot of money on the rebuild. There's an entire front clip of a Denali being sold by a recycler for just over 4k...that's a lot cheaper than what it would cost to buy all new from GM.

I too once had a rebuilt Honda that was ran flawless. It's a gamble.

@HotHead, Have only put on a few hundred miles since the rebuild. I will have to get back to you on how it holds up :) The rebuilt front left suspension is making a few noises so planning to get that resolved this week. Hoping it's a quick fix.

Update: Got the fuel door back on, re-badged the doors. Sway bar was shifted against frame from impact and the bushings were falling out of bracket-- got that adjusted back in place. Cam bolt alignment guide pins had broken off on the left side bolts-- replaced those. Front windows tinted to match factory (20%). Had the RC 1" level kit installed for a few days this week. Decided to go ahead and install the remaining preload spacer, so now have the 2" RC installed. On order are mud guards/flaps.

Nice job!
... and the chrome fog light housings! I also added the GM tailgate latch with chrome handle and chrome GM recovery hooks.


Are there any issues moving from the 18" SLT wheels to the larger 20" Denali wheels? I assume the overall height (wheel + tire) is the about same because the Denali tires have a lower profile. I thought I read somewhere that you could change your wheel diameter in the settings, but now I don't see a way to do that.
