Thread: Anti-Bambi Bumper

    Yikes, I don't either. I'd follow Robinhood's advice and steal from the rich. I mean, just design something to bolt on. Like he said, it would take a lot of work to design crush zones and in the end they may not work properly.

    Picked up my 96's and my hubby's 99's front bumpers the other day. Big difference in the fatlip's weight, a lot more to it than the sad little shell mine is.
    '96 4Runner SR5 4x4, manual, e-locker, manual hubs too. Stuff happened to it. Stuff is still happening to it.
    '99 4Runner SR5 Highlander, manual w/locker. Stuff is starting to happen to this one too...but not too much stuff.

    Yeah when I started piecing together ideas I remembered how easily the crossbeam in the front was bent so I figured that adding a little something might help. But when you hit something that force has to go somewhere so that's why I thought it might be possible to design a crush area so that the force isn't transferred to a different part of the frame.

    Robinhood is right though now that I think about it with all of the testing. I just figured that it might be something worth a shot. I hope to have some kind frame tie designed in though because that crossbeam will fold the next time it's hit.

    Pause on this item, our offer on a house was just accepted. Doesn't have a garage sadly but it does have space for one in the future.
