Thought I'd sleep in this morning but no, the wife decided to run to the store and backed into the dub on the way out of the garage. She has a Ford edge with backup sensors so they're always beeping backing out of the garage. First I got mad, but then I remembered that, and then I got mad again for her blatant disregard for rear view mirrors! Arrghh!

Are we getting desensitized by technology? Is it too much to look in the mirrors anymore? I'm waiting the day I hear in the news that someone is suing a vehicle manufacturer for the crash warning system not alerting them soon enough to stop texting and hit the f'n brakes.

Ok rant over. Enjoy your weekends.

hope no major damage. never owned a car with those sensors but have driven them before and automatically i look over the shoulder and my rear view/side mirrors. i would never rely on them.

My wife has the same car, but it also has the backup camera too. I can only imagine how pissed you were.

I had a customer in the other day with a 14 Overland Summit. I asked how he liked it and he said it was way too much technology for his liking and couldn't get used to it. I told him I'd trade straight up but he didn't find it too funny lol.

Took it hunting/camping and enjoyed some great scenery... Didn't take pic.'s of some of the rougher areas.. however my rails took some damage underneath that definitely would've been my doors...





My friend going through after I went through (in case I had to pull the FJ out) ;-)
