Angry Guess it's time for a new Front Bumper

On my way home from a 15 hour work day, a Corolla blows right through a stop sign and bolts out right in front of me.

Damage to my truck:


Damage to her car:
(sorry for lack light, only light available was blue/red lights from the Patrol car)


I had been toying with the idea of beefing up the front end, and now I really wish I had.
Any suggestions on a front bumper that's not too over the top, but gives an aggressive look, good protection, and possibly some lights?

Good News: her insurance will fix this
Bad News: I'll have live a few days without my Taco

Ouch! Definitely need a new bumper. Add some beef (STEEL), and next time the corolla will be wishing they never blew threw the stop!

true, but next time when the car is nearly totaled and the truck's bumper is merely scratched they're gonna feel like even more of a jackass. lol

That's the idea!

Had I not swerved and braked as fast, I would have gone right into her driver's seat, imprinting a negative on my license plate into her left arm.

My turn signals are on the inner edge of the head light closest to the grille.
On first gen's I drill a hole on the corner light, under the parking light just big enough to fit the turn signal bulb and then seal it with silicone.

Stingerless 4xInnovations, Addicted Offroad, or Trail Gear should do the trick.

I got an addicted offroad being bent together right now...

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions! Keep 'em coming!
I hope to be ordering one by next week (to go along with the tow hitch, upgraded suspension, & Eaton TrueTrac).

BTW: Turns out the other driver was intoxicated. After I left the scene she did not pass go or collect $200.
