I had a CJ-7 and I thought it was tin foil POS compared to my old FJ40.
old fjs were made of depleted uranium or something else indestructible lol. i think mine was just one of those cars that refuses to die and or its related to christine and just rejuvenates it self. i still have it. 270,000 miles and still running strong

I think the Federal Standard; is just a 5 MPH Bumper, because nobody drives faster than that in the Congressional parking garage.

Got to defend the T's with my story.

Alright just to some it up i was pulling out of a parking lot when som A hole that wasnt paying attention started backing out of his spot straight towards me, so in my reaction i put it into reverse and suprise suprise backed right into a ford F-250. Now im not BSing and i have no idea how this happend. I destroyed his grill, bent his hood and front bumper. And the Titan walked away with a broke tail light and one minor scratch.

The federal standard (for bumper absorbancy) was changed back to a 2 1/2 miles an hour in 1983 for cars. Trucks were always exempt from any bumper absorbancy standard.

I think the Federal Standard; is just a 5 MPH Bumper, because nobody drives faster than that in the Congressional parking garage.

I have a solution. I can't wait until I can run into someone or something.

Yeah, I messed my front bumper up, a guy stopped after taking off from a green light because a car merged about 100' in front of him, I was only going about 5mph maybe when I hit him, just don't think I slammed the brakes hard enough because I was not going fast at all. Literally we were rolling for about 40' and he slammed on his brakes. When wr pulled over he had nothing wrong with his pos crown Vic and I had a front bumper to replace, luckily I have a contact for replacement parts so it only cost me $145 total an my mechanic at wok but it on. Gave him a hat I won at a golf outing lol.

Let me say though the back bumper is a beast. I had a woman rear end me at a stop light, she was in a dodge magnum and needed to have a whole new hood, left headlight & qtr panel, bumper and who knows what else internal and supports and I have a tiny scratch on the black plastic top of the bumper. Unless you know it's there you don't even notice it.

I can vouch for that. Was rear-ended pretty good last year while stopped at a red light. The older Mitsu Montero that hit me had it's front end pushed in to the point that it's front door opened less than half way. My truck's rear bumper was pushed in, causing minor paint chips where the edges hit the body, and the black plastic cap was loose, but that was the extent of the damage.

BTW, anyone selling a chrome rear bumper w/o sensors? lol

Every thing is made to crumple after like 5 MPH, the truck absorbs the impact instead of you.
