Going riding for the day yesterday... I load my quad the night before so I can get an early start. I think I may have tightened my tie down straps just a little too tight. I use 4 tie downs... 2 on the rear grab bar and 2 more on the bumper in front. It appears that the tension on the tie downs on the bumper were a bit much... I hit a bump on the highway and the tension broke 2 of the welds on the bumper... Try to beat that one... break the bumper while the quad is still on the truck! My riding buddy from yesterday has his own quad shop and is going to re-weld the bumper Monday. Didn't want the bumper flexing too much on the ride so see the last pic for my temp fix.
