    Found these while going through my pictures folder from couple years ago. This is what happens when an Acura decides to stop at random and the sun is directly in your eyes at 7am and you don't see brake lights until BAM

    here is me

    it ended up breaking some plastic clips behind the bumper but the bull bar took most of the impact well I should say the Acura took most of the impact hehe

    That sucks man, looks like that bullbar saved you though. I take it you were still liable for the damage though?

    all my damage happened behind the scene the bull bar bent back and cracked some plastic stuff behind the bumper. the repair shop replaced the bullbar grill headlights and bumper all because the plastic mounts broke

    Ahhh the benefit of a driving a truck...

    You rear end someone and demolish their back end. Or someone rear ends you and they end up demolishing their front end :)

    Im glad i have a bullbar lol

    That's why I had a bullbar installed on my truck. Just a little more added protection cause that plastic bumper won't cut it.

    You don't want to know...
    What brand was that Bull Bar? I want one, but I don't want one that's just going to crush like an aluminum can if its actually needed.

    Yours obviously did its job.
