    Here is what a tree can do to a Tacoma. TW member was on a camping trip with other members when a tree fell in the night. No one was hurt.

    Thanks everyone. I was in my tent next to the truck. This happened about 730am. Tw members had to cut me out of my tent as it had collapsed from one of the tree branches.

    Hell yeah it still runs. If it was a 4x4, it would have driven out of there. A branch impaled the bed and took out the drive shaft.
