    Lmao. In this case it was a pot hole. Only one in the parking lot and I nailed it...so sad.

    Pretty sad when a 1974 VW Super Beetle can take a pot hole big enough to swallow it better than a new age plastic big truck can.

    Looks like par for the course. I see more newer Cascadias without one side of the bumper than with.

    Don’t feel bad, I did it late one night. One of those up “all day, drive all night, up all day” deals. Finally finished and figured I’d lay down at some truck stop I never stopped at before. Never saw the pothole at the entrance, drive side dips down, crushed my exhaust elbow and pipe (like lay a 5” elbow flat and compress it), plus tore my light bar off the driver side of the bump.

    Left there so heated, went to the chrome depot in mantua OH, bought new elbow, pipe and flex, fixed it in their parking lot and stood on it all the way back to north Jersey.

    That was one of those trips where you know bad is going to happen, just unsure how bad it will be.
