Made it to Colorado Springs last weekend but unfortunately my 4runner didn't survive the trip.

Four words 'Wear you seat belt'. I walked away without a stratch. :grin:









Rip! :(:(





Short story lost control outside of Little America, Wyoming while reentering the interstate and wound up in the median. My brother was right behind me in a Uhaul when it happened and it scared the crap out of him. It took about 3 hrs for a tow truck to get there to get the car back on it side due to other accidents.


I'll know Monday from my insurance what the verdict is on it.

Noticable damage:

Front passenger side door doesn't open
Broken out glass in front passenger side door
Drivers side front fender crushed and side corner maker hanging out
Both sideview mirrors
Roof crushed in upper a-pillar, wind shield busted in this area.
Roof shows buckling at the b and c pillars
Roof bowed behind sunroof
Interior trim pieces in the cargo area busted from stuff I had back there
Rear hatch doesn't open all the way because of the roof damage
Roof rack busted
Other misc bits broken off
Engine damage unknown - laying on it's side for about 3.4-4 hrs while waiting for a tow truck (about 8 accidents at the same time as mine)


Airbags did not deploy.

Wow glad to hear your ok! So will there be a new toyota in the plans if they total it?
Yep. Either another 3rd gen, 01-04 double cab tacoma or landcruiser.

It's kind of funny I've been though some messed up mountain biking accidents prior to this but this one has taken a pretty good total on me mentally.

That's a pretty rough "Weclome to Colorado"... glad you're okay. If the insurance totals it, ask what the buy-back price is; maybe it'll be cheap enough to keep and part it out to fund the next project?

It's hard to tell from the pics but did the roof get pinched on both front corners? That's usually a total-out since the A-pillar is damaged on both sides.

the 4th photo down shows the damage at the drivers side a-pillar which was really none except at the corner of the sunroof. The passenger side a-pillar took a good hit so that door didn't open. Both the doors on the driver side opened up fine.

Welcome and glad you are OK. Sorry about your rig. A rollover keeps your head in check for a good while. Hope you end up with another 3rd gen that you can just swap everything over to.

Glad you are ok. Shitty welcome though haha. I vote for buy back also. You could definitly part it out to fund another rig.

The insurance company holds the title to it now.

The repairs are more that the ACV (actual cash value).

When my Camaro was wrecked I bought it back for salvage value ($500).... IMO it's worth checking out; you could part it out and make some bucks.
Hell, I sold that car twice; first time dude flaked on payments so I repo'd it; second time the drivetrain went into a 58 Impala. :cool:
