Done that and then watch them get pulled over as they floor it trying to get ahead of everyone.
Done that lol if people tailgate me and go to pass I speed up so they can't get in then they go behind me and I slow down or if your at a red light put it in reverse haha

If you're passing a big rig, and someone so far up your *** you can't see the front of their car, just slow down and pace the truck. Where's he going to go? He'll have to slow down so much to get around the truck. Guy almost hit me trying to push me once, so that's what I ended up doing. Safer than the *** clipping me. Don't want to cause an accident, but the way this type of driver tends to be, he'll be all pissy with 'I'll show you!!' and speed up. Had one *** do that and do the hit his break thing. Was absolutely hilarious as he was in a mini-van about 5 car lenghts or so infront, of me so he had no one behind him and he hit them so hard, the front nosedived and the back unloaded. Was hilarious to watch. All because he was dangerously close with the heavy traffic so I slowed down to the speed limit. Had a friend in an XJ that was clipped on the highway. Knocked him out of control and into a civic, which took it out. Guy had obvious damage but kept on going and never stopped. Not sure if they got him or not. Luckily his g/f wasn't with him. His took box came from the back and took the whole top of the passenger front seat out.

Couple years ago saw an accident just after it happened (of course in Brampton, worse place to drive in all of North America). Guy got onto highway 410, immediately flew across into the passing lane (3 lane highway) and clipped a woman driving with her sister. She was knocked out of control, across the large median into north bound traffic and hit by a transport. She was killed on scene, and her sister was in critical. Guy just kept on driving. All I could tell you of the car was that it was a silver small car. Couldn't tell anything else about it. Apparently was a mazda 626 I think. Brutal.

Highway I drive to work every day is an 80km/h as it's not controled. People all the time do 110km or better. In the last few years there's been a lot of bad accidents and deaths. he other weekend within 16hrs there were two, both with fatalities. People just don't get it. They think they should be able to drive any speed they want, and anyone slower than them should get out of their way. Sooner or later it catches up with them Have video of a car that almost hit me last summer. He was going so fast compared to rush hour traffic he could't stop. Forced himself between me and the car beside me. Don't know how he didn't hit me. Pretty scary to watch (yes, I always have a dash cam on and recording since the accident in jan.)

What do you use?

I like slowing down and boxing them in.

I also have this on my spare tire. Eventually going to put red lights in it.

I had a civic (we call em fender lizards round here) rear end me in the drive thru line at KFC. when i got out, i saw him throw it into reverse. I tried to stop him, but he backed up anyway. Then he tore outta the parking lot leaving his bumper shell hanging on my trailer hitch. Probably had no insurance. Wish i had pics

I had a civic rear end me about 10 years ago in my first truck, a 69 Ford F100. My truck was a beater, and had a massive bumper pull drop-down receiver hitch (think of an upside-down triangle). I was stopped at the red light at the bottom of a steep hill. The civic was trying to hill jump, and couldn't slow down in time. The driver slammed on the brakes, and wedged the nose of his car under my truck. When both vehicles came to rest in the middle of the intersection, my hitch had hit his windshield, and smashed a small hole into his windshield, in the bottom edge where it meets with the cowling. My tire was resting on his radiator support, and his hood was wrinkled back to his windshield.

When the cop arrived, he said "well damn, looks like he tried to drive under your truck..." A tow truck arrived too, and was going to pull my truck off- I hadn't tried to move it at all. I declined, hopped in, and drove my truck off the front of the civic. I didn't have a single scratch on my truck. The civic was totaled.

Oh, and the best part. The guy got arrested for a DUI. And he had 3 prior hit-and-runs.

Not that I like Hondas or anything, but you all do realize they're designed to crush on purpose right? The more they crush the more force of the impact the car takes instead of the driver. Nevermind the fact that the Honda sits half as low as our XJs do so more of them are hitting less of us.

Slide the nose of your XJ under a semi's trailer and see how it holds up.

this. all this jeep: 1, honda/other normal car: 0 type threads fail to consider that you would probably be safer in the car that deforms the most, as the energy isnt transferred to your body.

The first two pictures are EPIC! The Jeep is just like, "Did someone throw a plate at me?" The Honda is just sitting there in shame. XJ's rule! To the second set of pictures, I always notice it is riced out Honda's (No PUN Intended) that hit people. Again, not trying to make a joke, but that is the the way it is in my area. @jrg510 What lift & tires are you running? BTW, I love the paint!
