UPDATE: pics on page 6
***************************************************




i wasn't driving.

i let my cousin borrow my truck to help his mother in law move out.
he went to work this morning and told his younger bro-in-law to take it just a few miles back to his house. he lost control and hit a pole. it's been raining. i've expressed concern over the nitto's in wet weather before; i've lost traction several times from a dead stop, especially when it's tuned w/ the gobs of torque it's capable of. my cousin thinks he was driving way too fast, and as you can see he hit pretty hard. police said he skid about 270ft. i should have reprogrammed to the economy tune. hindsight is 20/20 right...
the kid is shaken up and has a few cuts from the window breaking but so far is ok. i'm sure he'll be feeling it tomorrow. i hope he's insured, especially since he hit public property.

anyone wanna take a guess as to how much this is gonna be? :teethmast if need be, my insurance will completely cover it (no doubt the kid will take care of the $500 deductible).

i haven't even seen the truck yet, all i have is this pic.

The frame looks bent or maybe its just the angle.

Yeah I agree with Vilim. With the way the whole cab is tweaked like that they might just consider it a loss... who knows tho, shops can do amazing things these days!

i asked my cousin if it looked like the frame was bent, he said it seemed to be pointing pretty straight. it looks mighty tweaked to me too but i figured it was just the angle of the pic. guess i'll find out soon enough. soon as i'm told where they towed it to i'll be heading down there w/ cam in hand.

villim, how's your T drive after your accident? they fixed her up, right?

Ouch, sorry it happened. Since it's a 2008.5, they might want to fix it if the repair costs are under 12 grand or so.

Three people have drivin my truck other than the people at the dealer... My wife has never even been behind the wheel of it if that tells you something... I'm not saying that there is no one I would let borrow my truck but in your situation, call me what you will but the cousin would have his N**S split hard with a size 13 steel toe if not worse and the kid might not be able to walk again…

Be careful, I see vultures circling...about to ask if you want to part it out!

That's crappy...you have one of the best trucks on the forum with the black on white look. Hopefully the insurance takes care of it.

gabby im so sorry!! i feel like crying for you, seriously. yea i don't let no one drive my T except my better half. i've had a couple friends drive it before and just because of the sound of my exhaust alone, makes them drive it harder than they should. so i cut that shiet off.

damn 270ft skid is F'n crazy. that's 9 telephone pole lengths. i would seriously kick some a$$.
