    Tinted windows LOL, they look sharp as shit tho...
    About 2-3 weeks ago we had baseball sized hail here. I just bought my 09 tacoma a little over a month and a half ago and baseball sized hail rains down upon it. I was on my way home and it sounded like punks beating the shit out of it with baseball bats and im dying inside. I get home and not a single dint or ding. My roomate and brother drive home without windshields and fist sized dents ALL OVER....the one day my roomate leaves his 11 second Trans Am out it gets ruined....needless to say tacoma's pwn all!!

    Mine was banged up by hail on Good Friday. I am putting it in the shop for repairs next week. It is going to cost between $5-6K for repairs. I have between 200-300 dents (every piece of metal has dents in it). I should be getting a new roof, hood and all the rest of the dents are going to be fixed by paint less dent repair. I checked with multiple body shops and I am deciding to go with my Toyota dealer's body shop. They give a lifetime guarantee on the work (not just as long as you own it) and they are less than a year old and have the newest technology. My insurance adjusted said that they are actually the best in the area even though they are not their preferred shop. Here is a link to my blog that has the photos and videos. http://ryanweathers.blogspot.com/2009/04/hail-at-lake-martin-al.html

    By the way, I was at my father's house and he had holes in his stucco and is getting a new roof.

    My hood was dented by a carwash blower a few weeks ago. Tacoma's aren't dent resistant.

    No way. 3" hail here last year put my taco in the body shop for a week. My old chevy fared much MUCH better.

    You're just dreaming. These things are made like beer cans. :p

    I washed my new 06 a week ago and found a dent where some lard buttock sat on the back of the cab (bed side). Not noticable and not a big deal, but... I find when I wash my vehicles by hand I find out more than I wanted to know.
