    Popped a hundred dollar head light also, OUCH.
    Be careful using the recovery point to pull you, they are not for being pulled and can tear loose easily.
    Good pictures.

    So what is that solid stuff on top of the water?

    If you need a replacement HL, I have one off a '00 sitting in the garage I could be persuaded to part with.

    That really looks Cold! You might be one of a very few that have had there headlight busted by ice in water, if that's what broke it.

    Awesome pictures! I don't know why driving into two inch thick ice doesn't appeal to me though

    Ice is fun sometimes, but it'll do hell to your lights. I busted every zip tie (holding my headlamps and turn signals on) off the other day. BUT my Rockstar Fab front bumper is amazing at breaking through 2in thick ice. (Shameless promotion)
