    I wonder how it handles a slight off axis (e.g. +/-10 degrees) hit.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    I agree, I want to see what happens when its hit off camber. I think it could do more damage (bend the frame) rather than help.

    So far the consensus here, on another forum, and from my friends is that this is snake oil.

    I built something like that years ago to keep people from rear ending my Jeep. The spare was so wide they would hit the spare before the bumper and crush the tailgate. Never got to try it out though. Guess folks thought they didn't want to hit it.
