    They don't care. The 3rd gen probably does not want to damage their truck, and they probably don't want to damage yours.

    I'd go with they are not as concerned about their truck as others would be with their's. Tire looks worn, and low on pressure. There is also brake dust on their wheel. Those are not indicators that they do not care about their truck, but they don't seem too concerned about it either. Toyota say this is normal.

    This is where trailer hitches can protect you. Supreme suspension sells a tailgate skid plate that gives some bumber protection.BE166EF3-70E8-4309-B232-10C8B50B8C17.jpg

    I did something similar when I first bought my truck. Was in a parking garage and all I’ve admittedly gotten complacent using backup cameras. All the grey of the concrete blended together in the camera and I didn’t realize there was an overhang that stuck out over the top of the back of the spot. I got out and saw this…

    it was definitely luck, lol
