This is why you shouldn't take your 90 through the car wash:

I bet it came out fine for damages. The pickup looks like it broke the fall.

Bummer dude.

Just keep driving over the pickup Probably attach a line to the back of the 90 and then pull the pickup forward enough to get the 90 away from the wall. Then lower the back down. Attach a line to the front of the 90 lift then pull the truck out all the way. Then have the dog and driver get back in and drive home vowing to never again go to that car wash.

I know exactly where that is and I've seen that Defender around the area too. That sucks but at the same time is kinda funny. Glad the dog is ok.

Thats why you should never wash a D-90, they don't like to be clean, as you can see this one ran away from the car wash, and tried to do some wheeling.

WOW! That really blows! I agree with Mike though, it must have been running from its bath.
