    well I was looking through my pictures, and found this, Its my now fiances old truck.
    We were driving to tyler tx to look for apartments when a girl fell asleep and cross our lane then swerved back across the road causing us to T-bone her right on her door going 70 and sadly killing her.
    But we hit her and did a 180 landing in the middle of the road.
    this is her old truck and made my choice in turcks secure on this.

    I always feel much safer in my Tacoma. I was in an accident not long ago and while it was not nearly as bad I was perfectly fine. I Was stuck driving rental vehicles for almost a month and every vehicle felt flimsy and weak. I have been in FJ-40s, 4Runners, FJ-80s, Tacomas and Tundras and I always feel much safer in Toyotas than in any other vehicle.
