wetzie Not sure if it is related but the water works can get bumped pretty good. Check any leakage and inspect the water pump. If you have nerf bars check them for alignment by looking down the side.

stevens243 Ah, have the mechs check out the steering, frame, radiator/cooling and do a leak check. Make sure it still does EVERYTHING, like shift into 4 hi, neutral, 4 lo, emergency brake etc.

Blow some paint on the bumper and tell everyone it's rock damage from the trail. It adds character!

CVFD76 well i locked it up and slid about 15 ft so i dont know how fast i was going at point of impact. the airbags did not deploy, but im kinda glad cause thatd just be one more thing to fix. im gonna try for a new bumper, and tires, my fender got a few descent sized chips so ithink i can at least get that part painted. o, and my front passenger fender flare is scratched up and bent out a lil bit. i posted the original the night it happened, i found these other things the next day in daylight

Airbags are triggered by inertia, they will work if you have no bumper, stock bumper, aftermarket bumper etc.

parrot head Motor mounts, check 'em. The engine is very heavy and tends to keep moving when the vehicle stops suddenly.

jgano23 i'd fight for a new bumper. i had some jack@ss fedex driver slam into the side of me 2 months ago. i got a new bumper (even though it was broken before) and some new sway bar discos, along with the other parts he did destroy.

tiny terror At 65?? Holy crud. That must have been something to see. I might have to replace my seat had it been me. Have you thought about having yourself checked out? Minor head and neck injuries can turn out to be not so minor.

frame, radiator, fan, steering, trackbar and its brackets, front axle, control arms and their brackets.

thats about all I can think of
