Ouch. Though that's exactly why the old Landys are a death trap for occupants when crashing at speed and also pedestrians. No give at all. I'd rather have a mullered bumper than face or dead kid.

Helps when you have a non standard heavy duty bumper that doesn't give in an impact. Might want too check it hasn't bent your chassis legs as they are weaker than the bumper?

I had old Landrover Defender once (3 years). Got in a slow 4 wheel slide on ice thankfully didn't hit anything but not far from the curb. But it bought home the thought of the damage to me and my legs inside had I hit something and come to a sudden stop even at 10mph contributed to it being the least used vehicle that I ever owned. It was more of a shed on wheels in the end.
