    I finished up my Shackle flip and raised up the gas tank finally. I was in the process of banging my rear bumper back on (Its a tight fit), with a 4x4 board and the whole thing dropped on my foot! It didnt break it but it swoll up and is black and blue. I cussed so bad I think some demons moved in. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Homemade. I did some research and could not find anybody that had just cut the hole and then had it fail. Time will tell I suppose.

    Now this brings up the question:

    Who do I sue?

    1. 4x4 Iron - No, they most likely do not have the cash that I'm going for.

    2. ColoradoK5 - No, Same reason as above.

    3. Allstate Insurance - No, I dont want my rates to go through the roof.

    4. The Bumper Shipping Company - No, they could get out of it to easy.

    5. Hospital - Yes, Everybody sues the hospital. Even though all they did was an x-ray, You can always get money out of the hospital.

    And I thought you were going to say you pulled a Ford in there to work on it for a family member. Then I could expect the bumper to go after you...

    sorry to hear about your foot. I also did the same thing with the shackle flip thing, But I eneded up puuting a brace across the top. I haven't field tested yet though. Just seemed like a good idea at the time!
