Elk? did you say Elk ?...C-dog said:Thanks for the info. I'm going with the bull guard because I almost smoked a elk this morning.
That incident didn't happen to occur between the entrance of the Needles district of Canyonlands and the main highway to the east north of Blanding, UT, did it? I almost plowed into a herd of deer/elk standing in the middle of the road, late Dec, cold outside (came around a bend at 70mph at dusk, no lights in their eyes or any warning). I couldn't stop in time, but did hit my horn, which started them and caused them to run in the direction I was travelling, buying me that critical extra distance to stop. After returning home first purchase I made was an ARB winchbar. No incidents since then (it's like, if you have an umbrella, it won't rain). Had a deer jump out in front of me midday in So. AZ last year, but I was going uphill and managed to stop. Wife said, "No need to stop. We have the bar!"SINCITY100 said:Elk? did you say Elk ?...
This is exactly why I put a Bull-Bar on my 100.
1:00 AM, 17 degrees, in the middle of No-Where Utah, ... My buddy was right behind me in his brand new Tacoma, and as we rounded a curve, Something caught my eye...An Elk jumped out on the road JUST at my 100 passed by it..My friend was not as lucky
As you can see....His "Pre-Runner" bar didn`t help too much !
I`ve got to hand it to him, though...After the tow truck took off (with what was left of his truck) he hopped in my `cruiser and said " Well, lets go camping"!!
I think he still has flashbacks of that night...
