Hi.
We have 4runner with front ARB and our rear bumper came for repair front-end collision. We decide to use this chance to test our bumper. Our frame machine rated 10000 pounds pull each tower. We attached towers to the bumpers recovery points and pull…
Stay tune for result.

That sounds interesting. Let us know.

I have had to winch large rigs (like 80's) on snow runs ect. and hook my rear to a tree to prevent my rig from being dragged. It felt my my rig was going to be pulled apart (but it held).

You better not be testing that until it breaks!

Driving home from Red Cone, Rachels was tired and her friend was driving and rear ended someone at C-470 and SanteFe. The ARB kept the damage from getting real bad, but it has a crush zone (Unlike the 80 bumper) that crumpled and some of the "stuff" around the drivers headlight is damaged.

Oleg's shop is 2 blocks from my office and he called me before he started this thread. I trust Oleg, I just wanted to SEE what he was doing, looked kind of cool.

Of course, it would be unlikely for the son to say to his female friend, "I'm tired, you drive." That way, he can rear-end another vehicle himself, without assistance from a backup driver.
