Sure can, idk exactly what your going to have to say to your INS. company but I've heard of people doing that. Ie messing up thier stock front and just telling the insurance to give them the money that a stock bumper would cost from Toyota, and buying an arb or something.
If you need a stock rear on the cheap lmk, I have my old one collecting dust

just get the estimate to fix it up and take the cash. U don't even have to fix the truck if you don't want to and just pocket the insurance money for your upgrades.

Yup. When I had some insurance work done on my truck, it was gonna cost $350 or so to fix the front bumper (besides the $5k in other work). I told them not to make those repairs and I used the $350 toward a custom bumper.
