Pics of ginger baby’s wreck

This was my first FJ I bought for my daughter. Absolutely saved her life. #2 FJ is being cleaned up and windows tinted tomorrow.Pics of ginger baby’s wreck-7593c445-99d5-43eb-9f9c-b128391ac7c1_1566522030208.jpeg

Re: Pics of ginger baby’s wreck

Glad she is ok. I am NOT surprised by the FJ keeping her safe...

I parked in front of my house 3 years ago with my trailer hooked up. An F-250 hit the trailer, went up on two wheels. One came down on my front fender and that flipped the F250 on its side. Kid was going at least 45-50 and never even tapped the brakes. Likely texting or thumbhumping his phone.

I had to forego some repairs in order to keep the insurance company from totaling my Hell***** - too much money in her for that, and the damage was superficial - metal and glass, nothing framewise or with roof or main cabin - just crushed fender.

You might try and see if the insurance will let you buy the wreck - lots of parts for you or to sell on secondary market.

Re: Pics of ginger baby’s wreck

Glad that your daughter is OK ... with a dead-center T-bone impact like that, it's very likely that the side curtain airbag played a key role in minimizing head injuries.

With a side impact, there is very little crushable structure to absorb energy through deformation.
