Agreed. At least that's what the Safari tells me. That works as long as the cables attach higher than anything else on the roof rack. It doesn't do much for limbs that bend around enough to miss the riser cables on the edges. I guess if you had 3-4 cables with 1-2 more centered, it would take care of those limbs too. Deadfall spears laying off the edge of the road bank are a real rad/headlight danger. Is that what took out the rad? I once took one through the headlight, through the battery and into the firewall. Expensive but taught me to slow down and watch the edges of the trail better. Tough to avoid when going through thick brush. Maybe some lighter floor grating on the front would help. Safari has a skid plate from the rad support back to protect the bottom of the rad but there is nothing but some cheap plastic grill on the front.
