    5100s, 885s, deaver AAL, Waiting impatiently to install Demello front bumper, Mobtown sliders & skids, and safari snorkel.

    I have a Demello front w/ hoop, and can say that at 35-45 mph hitting a deer with it sent the deer down and under immediately upon impact and only left a couple pieces of hair on the bumper. No other damage was found.
    Granted it didn't hit the hoop, but I feel confident that at those speeds it wouldn't have done any damage to the hoop either.

    Here is my evidence fir demello hybrid bumper. This is how I ended back in a taco.

    Semi truck rear ended me doing about 45 when I was at a dead stop. The damage on the suv in front of me was bad. Her suv wouldnt start and the semi was down too. My front of the hood and fenders werent even scratched.

    So my 7 pin connection to my trailer isn't working with running lights.

    I get brake and turn signals...just doing a quick visual look isn't showing any obvious corrosion or missing pins. I confirmed the running lights work when hooked up to my BiL's truck.

    Anyone have any quick or insight on diagnostics?

    Duh, Dave...what you think I am, some kinda idiot?!?[​IMG]
    (quickly runs and pops hood, finds blown 30a fuse and replacement fixed it)

    Thanks man...I was working from the trailer forward, since I have a few side markers that the wiring has shorted out on.

    All good. Can get confusing it truck lights and trailer lights are different fuses on the truck.

    Now I'm interested in what/when/why the fuse blew...haha I could just stick the blame on @3pooches muddy adventures, but who knows.

    Now to finally getting on to the real holiday shutdown chores:
    1. removing those 4 degree shims,
    2. installing redline hood struts
    3. Installing meso ultimate turn signal
    4. Installing meso ect delete/buttons into shifter

    While I'm on a roll...any one have experience using MOFI 4500 4GLTE router via sim card?!?

    I finally purchased one in the hopes of increasing our nonexisting home wifi, aka stop having to dedicate one of our phones as the hotspot for work from home and TV/general internet use.

    We've a cell booster, which has helped give us data capabilities on our phones and allowed for us to make/use them as hotspots, just hoping our veri zon plan will work, especially if we activate just activate a sim card with an "unlimited" add-a-line to our family plan.

    Plus my hand rehab hasn't been too horrible, still got a ways to get back to normal, or whatever the new normal might be. DAMN the atrophy is pretty extensive in my hand and forearm!! 2021 = hitting the "home gym" hard...aka firewood-round rolls, log lifts and log splitter sprints here I come! Guess I need to do the old fashion well bucket for more forearm targeted strengthening!!:rofl:

    That too...That could be quite the embarrassing discussion with the Physical Therapist!!!
    So Jenny, do you think I'm ready for gripping with fast, repetitive cycling with the wrist, elbow and shoulder??
    The catch phase is my "keep doing it to the point just before pain."

    It's challenging sometimes to hold my tongue with these folks at times...they don't seem to get humor, which makes it even better/worse!

    The wife has been very sympathetic and stepped up beyond her normal helpfulness with this setback over the last half year.:bananadance:
