    Yup.. Was side swiped yesterday during rush hour traffic....

    Lady COMPLETELY swerved into me trying to avoid rear ending some other chick... Damages to the truck go from the grill... all the way to the rear quarter panel, drivers side... (You should see the head light....) Damage is moderate as it caused several dents and broken panels.. + hella scratches.

    Although... I have to admit Im pretty happy that my tires did a # on her Kia Spectra :rolleyes:

    Anyways.. I'll try to get some pictures up tomorrow before work so you all can see the carnage..

    Just think its funny.. I buy it after Xmas 2009.. It gets hit by a snow plow in January.. and now this.. Do I have bad luck or what?


    Don't know if I will be keeping this truck.. Still waiting for the adjuster to get back to me. But Why pay $600 bucks a month for a new truck thats been wrecked twice in 3 months.. I'd rather just cut my losses and trade it in after its repaired..

    Also, if i should decide to sell it.. I will have a bunch of parts up for grabs.. all undamaged.. New DTLH, New DTPB, TRD CAI, Black BG Grillecraft, Yellow Fogs, + what ever else I can part out..

    K, I'm off to work... Opinions????

    Man, that's a run of bad luck. Wouldn't fault you for going for another vehicle.

    I got rear ended twice already, not very fast moving vehicles but both needed a new bumper. then I backed into steel pole one night when it was raining because I couldnt use the backup camera. my truck also got 3 door dings already, I hate when inconsiderate people park next to you with no brain. that costed me another 100 to remove them. my lucks about as bad as yours but you cant notice any of my repairs so I'm keeping it. trucks only 6 months old.

    That sucks. Last September my wife was driving our '06 Camry in the rain and while hydroplaning, she side-swiped a Metro Bus- took out the Camry's whole driver's side plus the hood. No damage to the bus. It's all fixed now though.

    I say fix it and keep it. You wil take a massive hit trading it in or selling it since you've only owned it a couple of months...

    Alright.. Sorry it took so long for an update guys.. Been working a lot..

    Anyways here are a few pics of the worst of the damage..

    Its not terribly bad.. but there's moderate damage to a lot of different parts which just racks up the bill like a mother.... :mad:

    Soo far the bill has come up to just about 7,850.00.. There's damage to the grill (broken tabs), Hood (shifted to the right and back a bit), Left Lamp (just jacked up in general), Left Fender (Dented-Scratched-tweaked back against the drivers door), Left Fender Guard (Ripped-scratched-Destroyed), Bumper (Broken tabs-scratched-dented-tweaked), Drivers Door (dented-scratched), Passenger Door (Dented-Scratched), Bed (Shifted- Drivers side is up against the cab-scratched-dents), Rear fender guard (Smashed-scratched), Plus my rims & tires are chewed to shit from her car as well as my truck needing an alignment.. Who knows what else is wrong with it though..

    I'm really tired of all the issues I've had with this truck already.. Guess I got a lemon.. And as said above, If i sell the truck I'm going to take a Huge hit.. Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet..

    must be a toyota thing.

    Not necessarily accurate, but I'm going to blame this on living in California because I can.

    Get a big badass front end and rear end and some really tough sliders, this will keep your truck from getting damaged!
