    the day after i installed my AP bumper i rear ended someone and i thought i demolished them but my bumer and her bumper matched up well and the only damage was my lightbar when through her window of the wagon style volvo.

    Driving to fast on a dirt road came up on a corner that looked shallow, didn't slow down, all was fine until the middle of the turn and wam it turn to be 90 degree turn, started to drift then the truck went perpendicular to the road and there was a 7ft tall, 60 degree embankment. I hit that shit went up it a good 4 feet the rear keept sliding down the road and next thing i know the truck is lying on the drivers side (didn't roll, it flopped) and I'm now facing the left side of the road (embankment was on the right side). Thank god i told my passengers to buckle up or (the who I had to tell) he would of been sitting on my face. There was also 2 watermelons in the cab, but they did not break. And no one was injured thankfully.

    That shit made me cry, and i usually never cry.

    I was towing a fully loaded 6' x 12' uhaul trailer with my SR across country... We were passing through Arizona and hit a mile stretch of isolated showers. A semi blew past us like we were standing still and the semi's draft caught the trailer like a sail.

    It was some real hair raising $#!7 slipping and sliding between 2 lanes trying to keep the trailer from coming around... :eek:

    Scariest was definitely when I totaled my last tacoma. Before I crashed into the tree, I was certain that I was going to keep going down the hill and die...won't ever forget that feeling.

    This just happened on the Arizona Trail Run. I really don't know what happened. I think it was a combination of me being too close to the edge and a soft shoulder... I was only going like 3 to 5 MPH lol and then rolled 2.5x down a hill. It was nuts. :cool:

    Not in my Tacoma, but I was in my 4Runner in 4WD heading to a trailhead up a steep snowpacked road. Turns out that it was hard ice under a thin snowy veneer. All 4 wheels broke loose and continued spinning as I lost all momentum and simply stopped. I had no choice but to accept the ride in full slide backwards down the hill. Thankfully I threaded between the trees and rock walls on the way down. At the bottom I finally hit dry pavement not quite all the way sideways. It was that little bit of angle I still had that kept me from rolling. I've never returned to that trailhead in winter since.
