    I believe the car wash brushes may have too much pressure against the truck. I think Toyota should put a warning label these trucks , not to run them through a car wash. I agree with the beer can analogy, the metal is too thin.

    I wouldn't put the blame on the metal construction of the bed for damage that looks like that, that's a ridiculus statement

    The Carwash denies that their wash did the damage. Now I have to Lawyer up. The worst part is , I live in MI and it is a no fault state and consequently my insurance will be going up 42 present. That's really bad for someone on a fixed income.

    What's the estimate for the damage? Hiring a decent lawyer is probably going to cost you far more money and time and than just getting it fixed.

    Very thin sheet metal and probably too much pressure from those brushes.
