    Like the title says. Some dude hit me yesterday morning and pushed my bumper in. Cops called ect. His insurance is accepting fault. His car took most of the damage.....these trucks are tough. Thinking about using Royal Coach to replace the bumper any input or experiences with this company? I will post pics after I get off work.

    Look into getting a plate bumper...would look sweet on your truck. Might actually be cheaper than replacing the factory one.

    I'm insisting on OEM parts through insurance. Anyone know the price difference between the chrome and color matched OEM bumper?

    Hope it aint Allstate involved. Those idiots want you to put cheap repro Chinese parts on the vehicle, but you(not them) can request OEM parts for your vehicle IF you can get the dealer to sell you the parts for the same price as the repro Chinese junk parts. BTW, some of them will actually do it if you ask, but I dont think this is right, the blasted insurance Company should pay for the OEM parts at the dealer price discounted just a little. They got to eat too. I thought about telling an inusurance company that I want their policy at the same price as the cheapest quote I can find.

    Many bumpers come primed and have to be painted.
