    I love Tacomas even more now. I was involved in a roll over after some one hit me and sent me into a slide, then a roll over. Amazingly enough, I was uninjured. Just a 2 small pieces of glass in my hands, and a scrape on my left forearm.
    I will be writing a letter to toyota thanking them for such a safe vehicle.

    Yeah, me too. It was a company truck, not my personal truck.
    Now I get to shop for another truck (not my money), thats the good part.

    To everyone thanks for the good wishes.

    Glad you're ok...just curious did yours have 8 air bags and if so did they all go off? Mine has 8 so I always figured if I rolled it'd be like a marshmallow in there.

    This just in: HeliFreek will be giving a demonstration on how to properly secure cargo in the bed of your vehicle. This is helpful for any trail rigs or drivers in Maryland.

    Holy shit! Glad you are still above ground and in decent shape. Keep an eye on things for the next week or so. Sometimes injuries take a while to really show.
