    Hey guys just wanted to show how safe these trucks are. I got hit head on and side swiped. I did break my neck and I'm pretty banged up, but I'm still here and should make a full recovery. Air Bags worked but some have told me Toyota has a lawsuit for them opening to fast and killing people I wonder if that's what broke my neck?tacoma 1.jpg tacom 2.jpg tacoma 3.jpg tacoma 4.jpg
