Mine is like 5 3/4 or something, yours is bigger. Mine holds air though.

I have drug it climbing up clay walls and stuff, it doesn't bother me unless I don't make it up the wall all the way. Then I have to back down. Oh well, I like it.

It's definetly a "don't tailgate me, cuz your forehead will be the first thing that hits it" kind of bumper.

Yes but, when I run out of air I just let the compressor fill it back up.

In all honesty, I wanted a Powertank, but I am too cheap.

Get a drop hitch for when you're on the road. That'll show you who's going to win in a rear ender.

You should slop a little bit of lime green paint on it and put some radioactive stickers on it and see what happens.

And then put a Flexfuel emblem on the tailgate. lol
