    smashed (totaled) and new used Tacoma brotha
    TOTALED :( (DPT1) OME Coilover HD, OME nitrocharger f/b, Dakar springs and AAL, ARB deluxe bull-bar, KMC XD enduro wheels, 255/85/16 KM2, battle wounds too severe to see another day, May your cab and frame continue on to the afterlife and your engine and all the other perfectly fine components be donated to other Taco's in need of a transplant to see another day of wheelin. WE will always miss you, R.I.P. DPT1 DPT2 TRD offroad/sport packages= locker, bilstein, hood scoop, AND black hub caps!!!, dual deep cycle batts, alarm, blue dash lights, and some other crazy electrical stuff going on with amp and subs, A/T FlipPac (for sale), custom grille, and black hub caps... and a hood scoop... and did I mention that I have black hub caps? and a missing front skidplate??
    Check it out... smashed a tree last weekend :mad: and then then tree smashed my truck :(... frame is all mangled, cab is crunched, but NOTHING under the hood was touched, not even the radiator.

    I believe I stepped on the gas pedal at the same time as the brakes and hit that *'diameter ponderosa pine hard enough to snap it in half.

    Props ARB. Saved my truck, minus the frame... and cab...

    I hit another deer on Tuesday. The Brute Force bumper deflected it down under the skid plate. Only thing I had to do was straighten the license plate. Couple tufts of fur on a shackle mount and one of the cutouts. lol Damn thing paid for itself since replacing the factory equipment was estimated at $1900 last time!

    I didn't think about pics at the time I hit the deer. Had my 5 and 6 yr olds in the back, and they were already whining about "what'd you hit the deer daddy?" :rolleyes: Just rolled over it and kept going.

    As for pics of the bumper afterward, it looks the same as it did when I put it on. lmao
