    So my wife decided to drive off road today and park the 05 tacoma on some rocks. Good thing is she's ok, bad part is my front bumper is cracked in 2 places and retry hacked up from the rocks. I do t want to fie an insurance claim with my $500 deductible. Does anyone have some cheap options to fix this? It's an '05 4x4 with SR5. It's drivable as is but not really pretty.

    But insurance might not even pay with a $500 deductible. I have done no research, but if u can get plate bumpers for just under a grand, I would hate to think oem ones are more than $500

    Found one on thepartsbin.com for $88 shipped. Just have to paint it. I know O'reilly's carries colormatched spray paint for our rigs (most colors anyway I think). I hear it isn't close enough of a match for doing touch ups, but works could for painting whole parts like bumpers and fenders.

    Thanks guys. I meant to say I'm not filing insurance so I'm looking for a cheap solution. Might buy that aftermarket replacement & have it painted. Does anyone make a aftermarket one that's not setup for a winch?

    I'm sure you can request them to not cut out winch access holes for you.
