Smittybilt bumper did good!

Got in accident yesterday, I'm 16 and somehow managed to hit my girlfriend of all people . I was going 45 and some asshole slammed on his breaks because he missed a turn, and caused a nice pileup, I needed up hitting my girlfriends Honda accord going about 40, and I didn't have a scratch, dent, or any damage at all; messed up my back again, but nothing big. I did a number on the other cars including my girlfriends, but smittybilt really built that bumper strong (3 in tubular with hood). Not really a question just wanted to share my experience with it.

Glad to hear you are alright other than the back problem. Scary stuff... It says you have reached your quota probably because you have reached the maximum size for attached photos on the free account. Your options would be to buy the $25 membership or get a free photobucket account or similar and use that to attach photos. I have problems with the WF app so I use photobucket to post all my pictures. They have an app too. You just upload your photos there and use the "IMG Link" in the sharing area of the photo to insert it here. Copy and paste that link into a reply box here and the photo will show up when you post.

go to imgur: the simple image sharer and hit computer on the side. Upload the image, then right click the image and clock "copy image location" then paste that here using the insert image button.

Photobucket could be your friend too !

I have extremely short and limited experience with my smitty bumper, but it hasn't let me down. I understand the bad rap they get being mass manufactured chinese junk though. I just like the design of their SRC tube bumper...

That my friend is the sort of gesture of kindness that makes me even more proud to be part of the Jeep community.

I had similar luck when I was your age, if you aren't worried about making it to 20 you're not living up to teenage potential.

My Smittybuilt SRC bumper is heavy, but I know will add front-end protection in the event of a small to moderate collision. I had a run-in with some deer right after buying this bumper, and while 'wheeling, a Jeep backed into me by accident.
