Snow claims a bumper
The storm claimed another victim; on the way back during my trip (murphy's law prevails), just round albany, hit some ice at around 50; kicked the tail out couple o times, and steered her onto the snow. Stopped in time to thwart major damage, but not enough to miss the guardrail. With the force at which i hit it, I thought i was in for a major fix and $$. Not only would this thing require major $$ to repair, but also time and monoey to get my stuck a$$ out of the 2 foot snow. Well, got out and saw the wheels were free, so I tried to get out. Into 4 low we go, and...... holy wow, pulled right out like nothin. Drove up the road a bit and stopped to look at the damage. I was, and still am, amazed at what I saw. The only damage is a cracked fog light and bent bumper. I took the bumper off today and nothing appears to be out of alignment, and it drives fine (put another 200 miles on it since). I can attest the jeep is an absolute beast. Yeah!.
--- Any suggestions on a new bumper? Ebay is my first thought, but if anyone knows a cheap place near boston, I'd love to hear bout it.----
