  2. #2 - slightly over the weight rating for that model Toyota

    1. That brick of water weighs over 2300 pounds by my calculation.
      He might have made it to his pot patch if he had loaded it correctly and taken it real easy. But no, he's a dumbass with what used to be a nice pickup.

      Assuming that that cube is 1.5 meters on a side, a full load of water in it would weigh
      about 1000kg x 1.5^3 = 3.375 tonnes* (about 3.7 short tons). Plus the weight of the container, itself. . . A non-defective frame would have buckled.

      * AKA 'metric tons'.

    4. cube has 275 gallons of water (standard size). times 8 pounds per gallon 2200 pounds plus the tare weight of about 100. It should have been strong enough to hold the load....

    5. One cubic foot of water is equivalent to 7.48 gallons. The weight of one cubic foot of water is 7.48052 gallons times 8.3453 pounds, which equals 62.427 pounds of water per cubic foot.

      I am guessing the container looks to be 4 ft wide x 4 ft long x 5 ft tall = 80 cubic feet.
      80 cubic ft x 62.4 lbs/cubic foot = 4,992 lbs.
      Way above any Toyota truck.

    6. Those are 1000 litre cubes, AFAIK only come in one size, plus 50 lbs tare, for 2255 +/- lbs. Glenda wins. The rest of you, off to remedial math. A concentrated solution will be heavier than water, but it's not sulphuric acid in there...

    #3 How?

    1. The driver probably backed into it and pushed it over, then when the driver pulled forward it hooked into the space between the bumper and body. It appears to be set forward of the rest of the bollards and the driver probably didn't notice until it was too late.

    2. Wondered the same thing.
      My guess is the post was in a similar location to the one on the right, but it had been pushed over enough that the trailer bumper rode over it when backing up. Then it probably shifted enough to catch when he was pulling out and the rest is pretty obvious.

  5. #3 How?

    #10 Looks like a good landing to me.

    1. Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing.

      If you can reuse the aircraft that's a bonus.

  6. 2) Some of that generation of Tacoma's had the air conditioner condensation drain dripping on top of the frame rail that caused constant corrosion and failure. I have on of that generation that is a little later and the drain is moved up front but you have to check the condition of the frame. Mine looks brand new. It's just the interior, transmission, and engine that are worn out.

    1. You don't happen to have the model years? Asking for a friend.

    2. The one shown is a gen 1 Taco that ran from 95 to 04. All I know is mines an 03 and the drain line is moved. Also I'm in Texas and there is no road salt but if I was looking at a used one I'd crawl under and look the frame over real well. I'm keeping my 03 and my son and I are going to rebuild it but I have a 2021 TRD Off Road 4 door 4WD on back order. Don't even ask how much. It's my retirement truck.

    3. Mines a 2017, and I just noticed that drain line exits about where the passengers feet would be and pixxxes on the frame, about 6 behind the A-frame attachment. Even if they moved it over 6 inches. Then again, not much condensation in salt weather

  7. #2 - it probably IS over the weight capacity, but the 1st gen Tacomas are known to have frame rust problems in areas where road salt is used heavily.

    1. Also the pre-Taco's as the Hi-lux was subject to frame rot as well as the T100 and the first gen Tundra. It was not just the road salt areas but anywhere in the US. I didn't seem to have that problem with the trucks in the Asian market.

  10. For all to see the toyota is a late 90s did not fall under the frame recall that was 95and 96 2wd tacomas and that was at the the front suspension! The a/c drain did drip on the frame but did not do any damage, the biggest problem is salt on roads or living on the coast! What happened with that truck who knows! Yes i was a toyota mechanic for ever!!!!grayman
