Here is our trip in July to camp. These are the back roads around the area from our camp on the water nestled in the woods.

@Jacksonsnorth - Gotta love them back/dirt roads up in Maine. Can bring you to a lot of cool areas. I know out by where I am there is a "road" (more like a path) that can be taken down to a lake area, where an old railroad crosses the lake. The rail road is underwater but it's only by a foot or so, so you can walk out there and what not. Haven't been there yet myself, but I plan on going. Gotta love explorin'.

I'm pretty sure at no point in time they designed/engineered this with the idea that someone would nose first into a dune going to fast and expect it to be used as a safety measure. It's there to hold some lights and increase ground clearance over stock while you go out and have some fun. With that said, if that N-Fab hadn't been there I'm pretty damn sure the front end would look worse and they wouldn't have drove it back home Any product not used for it's intentional purpose will fail under abnormal circumstances.
The whole point of a "prerunner" type bumper is to be nose dived into a dune. Or a rock, or a riverbed, etc. He would have been better off with a factory bumper, simply because it is "softer" (ie would have collapsed much more) and is bolted to the truck in four. places opposed to two.


The nickname "N'Fail" exists among those of us who work in the industry for a reason.
