Tore a jeep apart.

My defender was out in the woods yesterday with some of my friends my d-90 was parked next to a jeep wrangler. The driver of the wrangler (a young girl learning to drive) stomped on the gas and ran into my defender. Well, sort of she hit my front bumper from the side. Thank goodness it was not worse for me that is suffering a small buffable scratch and a slightly warped front bumper. The jeep was not so lucky. It had the entire side cladding ripped off along with both fender flares, and a massive dent all the way down the side. What an Idiot. Well I guess this leaves me "Forced" to buy an aftermarket bumper. So what's it gonna be? I don't really want something too heavy like an ard but i want a tougher bumper. Any suggestions?

Jesse, are you talkin about the RN HD bumper with the Camel Trophy brush guard (like the pic)?

I've been thinking about some form of additional pro in front.... Thinkin Rockware, the RN combination, or an ARB. Anyone care to comment on any of the three?

Forget the RoversNorth bumper unless you have it reinforced. I watch someone set down on a rock with to only have it bend in toward the tire, I then fallowed the same line and did the same thing with the ARB, I also tried pushing the rock to skid over it, the only thing that happened was me not moving. The ARB is the beefcake, the Rockware is the best of both worlds, heavy duty (maybe not as much as an ARB) and great approach angle.

yeah man why get something that will be dterimental to you truck if you hit something? The only downfall on my truck is the PO hit something with the stocker setup (brushbar) it fucked up my left side "wing" so yeah its worth it to get something that will hold up to a hit. ask Rob Goodall about the Escalade he totalled with his ARB

Yeah, that's not the one I was thinking of...
Mine wraps around the sides of the truck and doesn't have the grating. maybe it isn't from RN (was on the vehicle when I bought it).

Go to "File" and open the picture you wish to resize. With the window pane that possesses your picture active go to "Image" then drop down and select "Image Size." Set the size you want then click "OK." Once you've achieved the size you want save the picture. Be sure to save it as a jpeg or gif. Don't save it as a psd.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Image => Image Size

Change the dimension reading to pixels, the default is inches and thats a PITA.

Save as jpeg and dial the quality down to 5 or less. It'll get real small.
