    well i've been on Tacomaworld for a couple months but I've never really posted. But i feel the need to post this!
    So today i was driving my Tacoma it was raining. I was on the freeway and and suddenly lost control of my truck im not really sure how it happened, i was driving well below the speed limit because of the weather. :\ Here are the results. I was fortunately enough to be able to walk out of it without any injuries, but the Tacoma seems done for

    Damn, glad you are ok, these trucks seem to hold up pretty well in crashes. You had insurance right?

    That's unfortunate. But I'm glad you were able to escape uninjured. You might want to get another Tacoma, knowing it kept you that safe.

    unfortunately the insurance wasn't full coverage, its only liability. I'm only 19 so insurance rates are high. of course i would love to get another Taco, but it seems very unlikely right now. maybe sometime in the near future i can be in a taco again :)
    and thanks everyone for the support!
