Wow man. Glad she walked away from it. Hope the concussion isn’t long term. Those are some heart wrenching pics.

Thank God she made it with seemingly Minor Injuries.

Strange that the Air Bags didn't deploy ... Maybe because of the aftermarket Bumper ?

With that being said, I disagree with all the ones saying that these front end replacement bumpers/grill guards hinder the deployment of the air bags. I had a 2006 Ford F350 C/C PSD and hit a telephone pole set up in the Academy parking lot here in Lubbock several years ago and mine deployed. I was not going street or highway speeds, but cutting thru the parking lot and not paying attention. The bumper I had was made in Midland and had the big pipe as the main part of the bumper. the pipe broke and crumpled, but not a single piece of grill of body was scratched, just the bumper. I still say there is fault that the bags on this instance did not deploy.
Well mudbug seems to think it was a faulty air bag because he already had it happen to him and his air bags went off with a big pipe bumper so it can't be the bumper has to be the air bags

Airbag Systems:
Crash severity is not determined by travel speed but rather the change in velocity (deceleration) that a vehicle experiences when it makes contact with another object. There are many factors that determine if the airbag should deploy. The airbag module (black box) is typically located under the driver seat or in the center console near the CG (center of gravity) of the vehicle. Not sure of the year model but Chevy pickup modules are typically under the driver seat mounted to the floor. The module is performing several algorithms in a matter of milliseconds to determine if the crash is severe enough for deployment. Several factors such as delta-v (change in velocity), direction of force and impact location are all considered in this equation. Depending on the year model, the module will also determine factors such as seat position and determine if the crash is severe enough for deployment or if the occupant only needs the seat belt pretensioner to fire and tighten the belt slightly. Each vehicle has a deployment threshold that varies by make and model and depending on object contacted (yielding or non-yielding object). As I stated previously, earlier model Chevy pickups seem to have a higher threshold. Having reconstructed thousands of traffic accidents and downloaded hundreds of airbag modules, my first impression from the photos was a non-deployment. I have no doubt she was jostled around and sustained injuries, that was a wild ride but sometimes the airbag can be more harmful than helpful due to the force at which they deploy. Check the seat belt. If she was wearing it and it won’t retract then the pretentioner fired. If she was not wearing it, and the pretensioner fired then it should be so tight in the stored position you can play a tune with it. If you have concerns have the airbag module downloaded, it’s full of useful crash and pre-crash information. Also, if you purchased the vehicle used and it was in a previous crash, the bag or module may not have been replaced. I’ve come across that scenario in the past as well. Good luck, hope she’s feeling better.

After looking everything over I am surprised the damage was not worse, both to the truck and your wife. Hope she gets better soon.

My truck has a replacement rear bumper and I got rear-ended once at a very slow speed. It hurt like hell. All the force was transferred directly through the frame and into my neck it felt like. There are definitely pros and cons to replacing that styrofoam/plastic bumper cover with steel.

If anyone's looking for a dash cam, I've had this one since October 2016 and it's great. Already been in an accident with it actually. I let the other guy finish lying through his teeth about what happened, and then I sent his insurance company the video. They fired him and paid me.

Tahoe was totaled and air bags never went off. Body shop said the sensors never registered a wreck.

Glad sheís okay, Iíve thought about those cameras too.

The sensors for the air bags are located in on the frame in front of the crush zone, just below the radiator. The front end replacement bumper protects this zone by distributing the impact of the crash directly to the frame and not to the sensors.

Glad to hear that shes going to be ok. She had angels watching over her.

It plugs in to the cig lighter, which turns it on and off with the car. You don't want one that runs on batteries. At least I wouldn't.
