BESRK makes a damn good bumper. I have one.

This thread is a massive failure.

There's been midgets, dobermans, wood body lift references, and pure confusion. It's perfect.

All it needs is a trip across the border and a donkey. Then it'll be perfect!

It's true. I re-read through it and was able to separate the serious from the sarcastic.

My favorite was the spring boosters on a YJ, 8 shackles required, and blocking down a SUA!

the midgets add a nice touch.

Last night, my girl started smoking, so I slowed down and lubed her up a little.

A few bucks worth of square steel tubing and you're set.
