Holy crap! I definitely didn't see that coming! Just goes to show why modern trucks get such great gas mileage; there's no there there! Defender bumper would have given it pause and a tooth ache! Any attempt to damage an ARB would have simply buffed out!

I guess it could have been worse. Might have torn the tire to shreds! And who wants to change a tire with a mean A$$ gator in the near grasses!

It looked to be a Nissan Frontier.

We have a whole team of gators in the shop. They just have a lot more finesse.

Frontier. If you scroll down after the video, you'll see what remained of the truck's front end.
