    So it's been almost a month since my truck was in a horrible hail storm...I just picked it up from the Toyota Body Shop yesterday thought I'd write and let everyone know how it turned out. I've worked in a body shop a long time ago, so I know a little about what to look for. I think it turned out very nice! I met and talked to the fellow doing all the work (1 guy per vehicle is how they roll), he seemed like a perfectionist like myself. And the manager is a perfectionist, so if it's not right it doesn't go out the door. All I can find wrong with it is a tape line in the door jam (no big deal) and the box isn't quite on straight (couple bolts and it'll be fine).

    I also had them add the sport hood with the hood scoop. So now I have a TRD Off Road with a Sport hood scoop hood! I like it alot!!!

    I'm 99% sure I'll just keep it and drive it forever (it still has the toyota warranty since it's a toyota body shop). Especially since I borrowed my sales man's 09 Tacoma demo, I didn't like how that truck shifted at all!

    Here are some pics:

    Wow, glad everything turned out fine. That is some serious damage. I can't imagine that they would beat out all those dents seems much cheaper and simpler to replace IMO. Nice truck.

    Not yet, and they better not! There was probably 350-400 vehicles, 100,000 acres of land and small town that was affected by this hail storm. If they drop me, they'd have to drop everyone of those people too.

    Yep, I have an Access toneau cover. Some of the others at the same area had their covers ripped through, mine held up.

    Nope. The truck was not totaled.

    Repairs were around 12,000. The insurance guy said he needed 4,000 more to total the truck.

    holy crap, I would cry if my truck go stuck in a hail storm and turned out looking like that. Looks like someone took a ball peen hammer and went to town on your truck! Looks good now, and plus you got the sport hood!
