    That sucks. It happened to my friend when he was carrying a load of bricks in his 08 tundra he was going up a bridge and they slid back very violently and bent the tailgate in the exact same place on either side. Turns out it looks really cool and stylish. he took it down to the toyota dealer and they agried and will be sending a picture of it to toyota to see if they will make all of their tailgates with this cool new body line.

    I had a pallet of salt in the back of my truck and the lady in front of me slammed on her brakes hard. I hit mine and wham, the pallet slammed into the front of the box pushing the back of my cab in and shattering the back window. I was pissed, but it was my own fault should have had a strap over the pallet or broke down the pallet some so it couldn't move. Live and learn.

    that happened to me, not as bad though. I was carrying a pallet of stone and it slid foward. It felt and sounded like it was coming straight through the cab.

    That is why my duramax gets driven by the wife... and the flatbed goes on the job. Of course, it still gets dented in the grocery parking lot... so I guess you can't win either way
