    My truck was hit in August and I just got my deductible back mid-December. This evening I was hit by a Nissian Armada that didn't look before making a left at an intersection and clipped me. Driver's side rear. Same spot as the first time. Luckily, there were no injuries.

    -Dents and scratches on the cab behind the rear door
    -Dents and scratches on the bed side
    -Punctured tire
    -Damaged wheel
    -Crooked axle
    -Dented rear bumper

    Not having the best luck. Both accidents were not my fault. The first one was 100% comestic. I am pretty confident there is some drivetrain damage this time.

    Starting to get the feeling I wasn't meant to own a Tacoma.

    There are some really awful drivers out there. Watch out for them. Drive as defensively as possible.

    Put it this way. They happen in 3s. Hurry and go crash it again and you should be good. :)

    Seriously though....You ARE very lucky you were in a Tacoma. Your truck saved you. Twice. Now go hug your truck and shame on you for even thinking bad thoughts! *shakes finger at you*

    I agree. Probably not the most cost effective idea however.

    The worst part is NJ doesn't recognize accident depreciation which is ridiculous. They can't tell me that a dealer won't see two accidents and give me the same value as a truck with no accidents. I should find out in the next 24-48 hours what the extent of the damage is. I just recently put KMC Enduros and Duratracs on my truck. The Duratrac is finished but I did have insurance on them. It was too dark to tell if the wheel had any damage.

    I'm most worried about how crooked my rear axle looked. I'm pretty bummed. I was getting ready to schedule my lift kit install soon too. I'm sure I won't have my truck for a good 2-3 weeks.

    I am glad that no one was hurt for sure but it's just frustrating that there was nothing I can do.
