    Whats up everyone. My roomie was driving my truck the other day, and someone rear ended him at a stop light. The guy was maybe going 5mph, the there was some pretty good damage. If my truck wasn't lifted, I would say it could have been a lot worse!

    The rear bumper is going to need repalaced, and for some reason my tailgate has a nice crease. So I was upset, but after the $2000 dollar estimate... and hearing that the Insurance company is cutting me a check.. I smiled a bit! I want to spend as little as possible on the new parts, and use the money for other maintenance I need.

    So here is my issue. I am going to fix this myself. I am in search of a black rear bumper and a black tailgate.

    I was wondering if I could get a tailgate with the rearview camera in the handle....

    Any suggestions as to where to get these things would be great. I will post pics tonight... nothing to excited.

    I'm surprised they're writing you a check. A lot of insurance companies don't do that anymore.

    Call the dealer, look on ebay, craigslist, local junkyards, online, etc.

    If you dont use their specific shop and you want to go off on your own, they will cut the check.
