YEAH......I remember saying to Rolando, while looking at you and your rig sitting on the mud covered hillside at a 45 degree angle and waiting for Tyler to return with the 30,000 LB strap, that we should be capturing this on film........

Well, maybe next time....oh, and my wife even went so far as to ask if you would attempt that hill climb again so we could try the MaxTrax out...... lol!

Well bad news! I crashed the 4runner last night, just a little fender bender! Unfortunately the tack welds on the bumper bracket gave and it pushed the bumper and winch into the grille/ radiator support. I am in the process of fixing it all right now, and it is going pretty well. I didn't take any before shots, woops!

Dang, that SUX! Any damage to the winch or bumper themselves? Glad you are ok!

Everything seems to be okay! Just too a little bit of massaging with the sledge to get the bumper bracket back in line! cheers

The mounting plate for the bumper was just a little tweaked. So he unbent it and I welded it on. Now to go test it at uwharrie tomorrow.
