Wish someone made a bull bar for 93-97 Rangers.

I drop it down a gear and if they get closer I lay on my horns until my tank empties lol

^^^^ If someone is tailgating me, I slow to exactly the speed limit. They will get the point and back off or just pass me. Too many unbalanced people have guns nowadays. One thing I will never put off are repairs needed for safety.
Replacing brakes is easy to do.

Blaring a train horn will get everyone's attention.

Ok...cool the bar may or may not have saved any further damage.
But for sure rushing around will cause damage...
what if all that rushing around and bad brakes caused you to hit a little kid! That'd be bad.

True true true a bunch of kids have guns these days. Any idiot can pull the trigger and avoid a clean fight. Bottom line drive safe and avoid confrontations in road. Like the idiot that wanted to approach tony stewart to talk trash/fight but got ran over by a car in a race track. He learned the hard way in an instant....

Looks like you ended up being late for work anyway. Had you had just caught the red light, you would have still been late for work but 1. you wouldn't have been as late because you wouldn't be dealing with an accident 2. you wouldn't have an at fault accident on your record which will now hike up your insurance rates and 3. you wouldn't have a truck with a damaged bull bar.

Hope you learned your lesson and realized that trying to save a couple of seconds and minutes by driving carelessly isn't worth it.

Yes!! I get the point now!! I have already heard it from family and friends, I don't need people I don't even know tell me what to do. I'm 100% positive I'm not the only one on this thread who has done at least one of my mistakes that day before. I guess I sparked the wrong fire this time!!

Just tell them you changed the cam sync with the MC part and switched to 5w20. You will be golden around these parts bro.

I wouldn't sweat it dude, people on the internet love to tell people how they fucked up.

And imo, brake checking is worse than tailgating because your exacerbating the situation. If someone is tailgating me I get over and let them go or, god forbid, even pull over and let them go.

I have a bumper sticker that sez..."Flyin' brown juice alert...dipper on board." Don't see many tailgaters since I put it on. Railroad track front bumpers work good, too.
