Some d-bag just ran a red light in front of me and I couldn't avoid him...

Wish I had an after market bumper at this point.

ilove_taco_ma 10-05-2011 09:47 PM

nice find man. but damn, thats not good but whats good is that you got a reason to purchase a new aftermarket bumper. lets get this baby going.

Sexy truck ;)

Alpha Q Up 10-08-2011 07:56 AM

Thanks Fellas.

Unfortunately i need a bumper now and i can't wait 1-2 months for an O.R. bumper.

So i'm just going to eliminate the chrome and and get a color matched bumper if i can.


Here it's getting towed to the body shop.

LOL coolest tow truck driver.

MJonAgs32 10-08-2011 10:37 AM

dude! this is the perfect time to get an OR bumper. I got mine after an accident too. Slapped it on and still had $$$ left over to pay of credit cards.

It can't drive how it is? I say wait it out!!

Alpha Q Up 10-08-2011 11:59 AM

The Bumper is bent to shit and it's rubbing on the tire. So the bumper has to come off for sure. I can't ride around with out a bumper for 2 months with out turn signals and no plates. lol

And the there is more damage that needs to be repaired. Such as:

Grille surround (replacing)
Head light and corner light
The Right Front quarter panel needs to be repaired and repainted.
There is more damage underneath.
The Bumper itself needs to be replaced

If it was just the bumper it would be no doubt an OR replacement. The bumper itself i think is only worth around $250. so that's all i would get back from the insurance. Cause i need them to fix everything else.

MJonAgs32 10-08-2011 12:02 PM

I see. If you were to get an OR bumper, which one would you choose?

Alpha Q Up 10-08-2011 12:15 PM

Relentless or Elite

Jerry said he would fab one up for me but he's really busy right now. I would have to wait 2 months.

MJonAgs32 10-08-2011 12:16 PM

yeah good choices, and for sure you'd have to wait

Alpha Q Up 10-08-2011 12:25 PM

Maybe if Jerry lends me his old bumper (same year and model as mine) I can collect the $250 from insurance and save for 2 months :spy:

MJonAgs32 10-08-2011 12:50 PM

just go over there, they're all working on his shop in the back

Alpha Q Up 10-08-2011 02:43 PM

I don't have a truck... Lol
