1998 Toyota Tacoma SR5 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I had a 98 Tacoma 4wd xtra cab. I skid
on ice at about 45 mph, went off road,
took down two 8" diam trees, bounced,
rolled 1.25x into a ditch, not very
steep incline, about 5-6'ditch.
Totaled. I had a slight brush burn on
my left ear and sore muscles on the
sides of my neck. I am, remarkably,
okay. The seatbelt held me in like a
carnaval ride. Although, I can't help
but wish that I hadn't Bounced and
rolled in the first place. If you look
at the accident scene, it seems odd
that I rolled. I bought an '89 in '00.
Had an electrical sensor problem,
window came off track, and was
replaced. Has 100,000 miles on it.

Best Features

Fun! Efficient vehicle. Good off road vehicle.

Worst Features

Fishtails on dry dirt roads. Is VERY slippery if not in 4WD even with good tires. If in 4WD, and going slow, it's great. Seats could be more comfy.
