    Were you chacking to see how well your paint would hold up? I doubt there was an issue of the straingth of the bumper. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Had to take a line close to the trees as any closer the other way was snowed in, after I backed off the tree I gave it a little go juice and a rock pushed me to the right and I smacked the tree HARD, I would have did a number to the rear without the side protection.

    Sniff...

    Poor tree... /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    BTW, you should take a look at the fender well scuff bars that Fred (FWP) added to his blazer. He has a bumper like yours. The rocker sliders, combined with the wheel well sliders (almost invisible and VERY nicely done), and the wrap bumper let him slide through Terminator with practically no (certainly the least) body damage. In fact, I’m not sure if he did any damage at all.? Of course, his dead on accurate driving helped too. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    A bud of mine with a Jeep has his done like that. He has tube running from front to back around the wheel wells. I am seriously thinking about doing that to mine once the sliders are done. It does not cost alot to do and it has saved his body many times.

    Russ, Thanks for the compliment.

    Steve, I don't have any pictures, I barely finished fabbing that stuff in time for the recent run. I'll get some up soon in my gallery. BTW, to be honest, I stole the idea for the bumper from the pics you posted a few weeks back, with some minor changes.

    I'll be interested to see if that bumper ever grasps anything like a graplin hook. (No Steve I wish nothing bad on your rig.) Looks like a small tree could snag between the body and the bumper. Pine trees around here can be biotches.

    Anything could happen if a branch was in the perfect spot, but I think the pro's outweigh the cons, I know I would be looking for a new tail light lens if it weren't for the bumper.

    I definately agree the pros outweigh the cons if you didnt have that bumper in that shot posted above you'd have a nice tucked bob-job in the rear.
