PostSubject: MY FJ Bumper testing   Sat Mar 24, 2012 10:21 pm

Ok if you are not on the facebook page . You did not get to see today's funny.

Me and the GF was in the FJ today going to get some paint to finish up a USMC Soldiers PSD . WE just did miss an accident on wendover ave by about a foot. Then all of a sudden this Honda accord wanted to inspect the rear diff for me.



Which in turn pushes me into a unexpected testing of the new Orange Boxx front bumper.







I think if I had the FJ's bumper on it ,well I just do not think I would be as happy as I am right now.



But if it was not for the Jeep to help all of this out ...... The jeep hit the accord in the rear about 35MPH and pushed the poor accord into the FJ breaking the accords camshaft when it hit the trailer hitch. I drove away after dealing with this for about 3 hours today. The only thing that is hurt is Annette. She was taken to the hospital with a back injury. I am sure she will be blue in the morning.

I am very impressed with the status of the bumper. Let Annette know we are thinking about her and hope she is not in too much pain.

Hate to hear of anyone having to deal with this, but the bumper did outstanding! Now that you've "crash tested" your front design, you really need to work on a rear design!

Hope Annette feels better soon!

I will have several different parts on and off my FJ. Like the medium duty rock slider weighs in at 48 pounds a piece.
