Aerodynamics, tree style

So was out this last weekend and had a great time on the trails. The last trail of the day was a wee bit tight.....

So you just kept on going after it ripped the front flare off? Does insurance cover something like that?

Did you consider stopping,... backing up.....maybe moving a little to the right. Did you have a spotter?

I slid down the side of a NY Taxi Cab in my Bronco once, but that only left a yellow line on my nerf bar.

I doubt any insurance would cover it when it's the drivers fault. Especially offroading lol. Sucks dude.

In answer to the insurance question, yes it is covered but my rates go up..will end up paying $4000 over the next 4 years.

As far as how I did it, I didn't even know I did until we stopped. I was driving through some bushy trees and I guess there was a log in there somewhere but I didn't hear anything other than the normal scraping.
