Thats an old pic, jeep was just slowly cruising a wooded trail and the left front tire spun a fallen branch (biggun) and it turned longwise and made an illegal entry right thru the floor boards, I don't remember anybody getting hurt, but it was close !!

Jalopnik a couple years ago.

Yesterday our group went wheeling for a New Years day run. Not long into the ride one of the new Jeep Wranglers went past a fallen tree and a branch that was sticking out hooked the Jeep. The end of the tree broke through the wheel well and almost seriously injured the driver. Does this remind anybody else of the movie Final Destination?

I would require a shot of jack, a smoke and a pair of clean underwear if that happened to me.
