Was just out for a Friday evening drive and happened to pass by one of the offroad trails I go down often. Seeing as it was dark and I was alone I only went down far enough that I could see what sort of condition the road was in. Long story short I turned around at the side of the trail and while pulling back on the front wheels dropped into a rut that was deeper than it appeared (time for some new front lights?), dropping the front end onto the avid bar. Shit.
I got out and checked out the damage with my flashlight, its tough to see much right now but the bar is definitely pushed right snug with my bumper on the passenger side. It doesn't look like it has damaged anything. I'll snap some pics tomorrow but I'm going to have to figure out a way to try and pull that side back out. My first thought was just putting my 30k strap between the top pass side of the bar, and the old apple tree in my front yard. Then hopefully with a few light tugs in 4L with someone standing watching the bumper it will pull out enough to look somewhat normal again.
Still love my avid bar, its still one tough mofo and looks great. I just hope its an easy fix to get it normal looking again. Without that bar on there this thread would have been titled "shit, how do I install a new bumper"
Oh and just for the record, the Line-X on the bar didn't even scuff.
