Is it worth it to repair this truck?

I've got a mazda 2500se that I wrecked when I rear ended someone.
I need:
radiator brace
bumper assembly
both airbags deployed

kelly blue book list the value at 3200$
I have not been able to find any mazda's or ford rangers in the junkyards here in central texas. It looks like I will have to order all the parts. Is there any way I can fix this and make it worth it? It is not my main vehicle.

You're probably looking at $2500 minimum just in the parts you named. Likely a candidate for the crusher.

My $.02 worth.

If your capable of doing the work yourself, it might be worth continuing to look in junkyards. They'r out there somewhere. If you have to pay prevailing rates for labor, then sell it to someone else who needs parts. You just proved they're rare.
