Okay, I can't help my self Dom. Sorry, not trying to offend you, just looking at it realistically.

Where have you ever been that a limb was too low for you to go under. We are not east coast bound or in the south.

What about your lights, your snorkel and all the rest of the stuff on top of your truck. They also make accessing the engine compartment hard from the side. If a limb is going to hit these cables it will not rise above the snorkel or the lights, so most likely you would stop and go around or get out a saw and cut them off.

I saw a guy in Missouri with them on, they worked perfectly, except he broke all his lights off the top of his truck.

I will just go around or some other way.

I am sure they will get a lot of comments at the mall. Cloths line on a long expedition. And my guess is that they are illegal in this state. There are certain laws the auto makers have to abide by for pedestrian collisions. crumple zone for body hitting the hood, and windshield. Those babies could sever a person in a heart beat.

But they do look different and I could possibly see it if I was in an area where they might come in handy. Just not enough bush for us, I have heard that before somewhere else.

Totally understand Bob!

I have never crossed a tree branch on the trail.. this is, more than anything, what happens when you 3 days off of work. Illegal in CA? What isn't!? :D

Really i just did it to do it 8)

I have seen several people with them on. It certainly draws attention no question.

Another problem with them, the birds land on them and shit all over your hood :eek:

Just teasing :D

Did you read the bit on Miss R2FJ's thread about the tension, and the play between the body and the bumper? Given the way you drive on the trail, might wanna get the spring setup she had.

Are you putting the OWL mod on the top of the FJ to keep the birds from sitting on the risers and soiling your fenders?

Well, the short white one was going to be a flag pole for Ouray (it failed).

Then the black one is my giant buggy whip that you see in all the Ouray pictures.
