    So yeah, while driving to work this morning; some jackass in a Jeep Liberty decided to make a very abrupt lane change with out looking to see whats next to him.

    Long story short, my Tacoma treated his jeep like any other Obstacle. It simply just went up and over him and came back down on his bumper. Unfortunately my truck did claim some minor scratches on my rear rim and the back fender. The owner of the Liberty had it a little worse, besides the exterior damage his jeep ended up pidgin toed in the front along with broken control arm.

    I'm just happy he didn't hit my front bumper, then I would have been more upset. I honestly don't think it would have held up to the impact.
