OR Fab Carrier saves the YJ

So I'm having a great topless morning commuting to work. Pulling away from a stoplight when the line hesitates, no worries, I step on the clutch and WHAM from behind. Gal in a Toyota Matrix decides the light was green and we should be going.

When her hood and radiator finished getting folded up by my spare tire on the OR-Fab carrier her plastic bumper took on the clevis ring in the receiver on the Tomkin bumper.

YJ 1 Toyota 0

No damage to the YJ aside from a few scratches on my bumper from her license plate frame. The Totota was a mess and bleeding radiator fluid as the dumb a** decided to drive it home!

Happy Monday all!

i love these stories.

a lady t boned my front bumper in a parking lot once. she was cutting through the middle of a lane. the c channel stock bumper went through her plastic caravan bumper like it wasn't there. i bungie corded her bumper back together so she could drive it. i'm too nice. needless to say, no damage to yj.
