    I thought long and hard before deciding to post this. My brother was never into truck forums and was not a member here. But he was Toyota, and Tundra through and through. He had a 94 4 Runner and, seeing my then new 2002 Tundra, saved up and bought a 2006 (yes it was white). He traveled all over the west on vacations in it, going off road all over. Sometimes we went on short trips out to the Mojave with both Tundras, and visited our sister in Lancaster on the way home. We are a very close family.

    He went on vacation last Friday, and drove up to Wyoming, planning on then going into South Dakota and seeing things like Mt Rushmore. Something happened in NE WY, we are not sure yet, but he lost control of the truck Monday evening and it flipped multiple times on the highway near Sundance and he did not survive. Maybe it's fitting that both he and his beloved truck left this world together.

    I'm sorry for your loss. I lost a brother recently too. Sounds like your brother left this world doing something he loved and I hope that gives you some peace. With love, a stranger, but also a passenger in the same tour of existence, Conor
