R&V new years run report,well after inspection...

10 mins in i almost rolled it over on the drivers side. no damage though

I slid down stump hill only to find trail junkie at the bottom with a blown bead, i rear ended him HARD. (glad nobody got hurt) front bumper is bent but frame rails are ok later in the day i flipped my shackles back on the front axle and pushed the front axle back far and hard enough for the driveshaft to break the t-case off the trans. the new years run was going to be the last before upgrade time. so let the surgery begin.

You should add a rear bumper to the build list, they absorb impact.
