    Dang, that sucks! If it makes you feel any better, I would have done the same thing without even thinking twice. Good karma for you.

    At least it wasn't any worst, and nobody was hurt (minus the dog).

    Have you considered getting a small trailer for your ATV? I used to haul a Yamaha Rhino in the back of my previous work truck. After pondering the possibilities if I ever had to jab the brakes I decided to get a small dump trailer that made loading and unloading a breeze. The trailer didn't cost much either, just under a grand. A whole hell of a lot safer than in the back of the truck.

    It just seems to me like the Tacoma is a little too small to safely haul a large ATV, especially the short beds.

    Good luck with the repairs and such.

    Does the trailer have brakes?

    I hate to say it, but when I'm towing I dont pull emergency stops for much of anything. If it was a human, forget the trailer, I'll jack knife it all day long, but the dog would have to make do. I would only be hitting the brake as much as I deemed 'safe.'

    Either way, It would have been a crappy situation for you.
