I don't think a better appproach angle is gonna help anyone when you try an headbutt things, J/K. I hope you didn't hit it too hard that would be real bone jaring. Maybe you just build a real big skid plate for that front and scoot it up the bank.

I like the lack of a hood. I guess it lets you monitor what going on under there. With less sheet metal you have less carnage. Good to see the truck up and running again.
