    So i was just driving down a very icy road in a canyon not too far from my house when my truck started sliding. the brake control and abs started kicking in, as did my correcting which turned into an over correction. sent my taco into a sideways drift into a dirt bank. landed on my side and slid for a bit then got popped back onto my wheels. i had to drive it 7 1/2 miles out of the canyon to get cell service. at first the body shop said it was fixable and was going to be over $16K (Thank goodness for full coverage insurance). i was hoping for a total because i had over 9K overhead because my dealer screwed me. it wasn't until the next day when the shop pulled the wheels off and discovered i tore the mount for the lower control arm off of the frame. another $5K, which totaled the truck :) so now my gap insurance covers whatever my insurance wont and i get to start fresh. i hope i can get another tacoma!

    That sucks. By the look of the photo are you in the Sarasota springs area? Where you up in the 5 mile pass area? Its a great place for just driving around or on a atv/motorbike.
