Yup. You had to be dang near touching the bumper of the semi though for full effect. No thanks. I'll pay for the gas.

Not to be a smart ass, but the trailer of a semi is practically made out of cardboard. Not justifying whatever these guys are doing, I am yet to figure it out. Lol.

Cardboard huh, maybe you work on the pretend tractor trailers cause the last time I worked on one it was made of some pretty heavy duty shit, maybe thats why they can haul 60k + lbs

As a trauma/flight nurse I've been to a lot of scenes involving semis and cars, pickups ect. I can guarantee you a semi trailer isn't made of cardboard. I've seen the bodies to prove it

I didn't mean to start a discussion. Just put in my 2 cents. Some parts of the truck obviously have to be heavy duty to be able to carry 45k* lbs. but as far as the ones I've worked on and around, are not build to withstand an impact from an arb bumper. But the arb bumper on the other hand is built for impact. See where I'm coming from?

Again, didn't mean to argue. And I do agree it is really not the brightest thing in the world and sure as he'll unsafe. I would hate to have seen any bodies come out of a car vs. Semi accident.

When your TJ and your friends TJ are the exact same year, but make COMPLETELY different noises from different places, but you both are oddly comfortable with it

After few days being in a rental car and goin back to jeep you realize your brakes not as good as the car you had and can't go that fast and plan to stop and make a turn like that. Rides horrible too but won't change any of that since I love the jeep.
