    I'm so pissed!! My wife backed into another car at Wal-Mart with my less than week-old Taco :mad: The adjuster/appraiser listed repair for 942 clams with a 500 bucks deductible. Sh*t!!

    Sooo, i'm thinking of getting a real bumper, but the only rear bumper I can find with Google is from All-Pro. I'd like to have other options, other than another crappy stock bumper.

    Does anyone know of any other 05+ rear bumper outfit beside the All-Pro?

    I think the A-P looks cool, but not sure if it looks good with my TRD Sport. What say ye???

    Danke!

    The right corner of the rear bumper got injured. It's pushed in towards the bed and caused a small dent.

    Yes, I have the factory hitch.

    Sorry about your luck. Mine 08 isn't a week old yet so I think I would cry! My wife actually totally wrecked one of our cars and wrote it off... 2 days old. Thank goodness she was ok and it was only a Ford Escort! We then bought a Civic and have always been with a jap. cars, suv, and trucks since.

    I agree with TacoSter about the look of the bumber from All-Pro, not my taste.

    Sorry cool, I would think the air in the house is pretty grim, I would be pretty damn upset, anything banged up can just get repaired.:(

    Well guys, thanks for the inputs. I wasn't too upset with the good woman, she doesn't want to drive the truck anymore though. LOL As was said, it's repairable... like most things, all it takes is money. *groan*

    The All-Pro is cool looking, but after some consideration, it just doesn't look right for a street ride... I'll just have to pony up the deductible and send the truck to the auto body shop. :(

    It's a shame there are no aftermarket bumpers for a street truck. I'd think there is a market out there.

    OTOH, I'm thinking that the Westin bull bar would look awesome on our truck. Maybe after paying off the Xmas bills, will I seriously look at installing a set.

    Thanks for the help guys!!:)
