Make sure your bumper is attached before you pull...



Ouch. Found this and wasn't sure if it had made the rounds on this forum yet. Gotta make sure you aren't applying to much shock load to things that aren't made to take it. Be careful if you make the foolish choice to just jerk someone out of a lurch with that kind of force.

Or if you stand close to someone doing it moreso.


Be safe out there.

Yeah, the hope is that people see it and if they don't already know, DON'T STAND IN THE DANGERZONE WHEN SOMEONE IS DOING A PULL.

That's gonna hurt, but you know what when you don't follow the principal of SAFETY FIRST you get burned. Both drivers should have been telling them to get out of that area. Dumb dumb dumb.

Thankfully the second video looks like only financial damage.
