Silly bumper thoughts
I was talking to a mechanic friend about what I was doing to finish off my bumper. And he came up with the idea of putting some short very heavy duty shocks on the bumper this would cushion the blow. I told him that it probably wouldn't work too well. I guess it doesn't matter, I'm not going to do that anyway, seems kinda pricey, and not as sturdy.
The other idea he came up with, was to put a couple of hydraulic rams on the front bumper so that if the road you are on is overgrown, you could extend the bumper away from the vehicle to push the brush / overgrowth down. I don't know, I think he might be watching too much Monster Garage.
Anyway, just a couple of silly ideas I thought I'd share.
