Recently hit a buck doing about XXX mph (we'll call it "Highway Speed") with my ARB equipped 06 Tacoma in the middle of nowhere with no cell service.
The air bags were set off and the truck stalled on impact.
I couldn't open the front doors, so we crawled through the windows to have a look. The buck was destroyed! I hit this thing dead center! There was blood splatter on both sides of the truck. Checked for leaks and crawled back into the truck, fired it back up and continued on our way.
The truck drove as well as it did before we hit the deer. I took it in for the insurance claim to get it fixed and they assessed the damage at $19,465!!!! Holy Crap!!!
They wrote it off and it just looks like it needs new fenders! I couldn't believe it! SO. For the ARB bumpers purpose of being able to drive away after hitting a buck in the middle of nowhere... It's awesome! Everything that the bumper was connected to was wrecked, and everything that was connected the that was also wrecked! But I did drive away. All in all I would get another one. By the way, the bumper itself is still in very good condition and may put it on my next tacoma. (after I straigten out the mounting brackets!).
