    Hi all,

    I have a 2008 TRD Sport, double cab, black sand pearl 4x4 Lb. I've had the pleasure to own it for 3 days! Absolutely love this truck, and I'm looking forward to many visits to this site for mods, info etc,etc.

    I however was rear ended today while sitting at a stoplight on my way home from work. What a pisser! The person who ran into the back of me was a 19 year old girl driving her parents Audi.

    I didn't realize she was only 19 when I briskly walked back to her car and very colorfully demonstrated my frustration clearly making it known to her and most likely all surrounding drivers that this was a brand new truck and that I've only had it for 3 days.

    I think I was quite convincing with my spastic body language and constant running back and forth between vehicles examining the damage in utter "dis-belief"

    The poor thing was shaking and in tears by the time I had finished my rant. Soooooo, I smartened up and told her that let's just be grateful that no one was hurt and after all, the damage can be repaired...

    Fortunately the damage is minimal, and I can still drive the truck - but jeez, 3 days old!

    So off to the bodyshops I go!

    Welcome to TacomaWorld.

    This is a perfect time to shop for a custom bumper if you're at all tempted to get something interesting on the back :)
