    At the time of this post I've been on hold for 15 minutes with toyota customer service. I'm trying to find the weight of the chrome bumper so I can ship it out. Anyone just happen to know the weight so I don't have to wait?

    They keep asking me arbitrary things like my VIN and mailing address. I just want to know about the bumper...

    damn, 16:30 on hold and counting.

    Thats better than i.. I called this morning to find out how much for a full detail and it rang i'd say, 15 times before someone answered and just put me on hold for a good 10 mins just to tell me there was no one who could help.

    They denied my TSB, they wouldnt cover my all weather mats when i wore a hole in them after 6 months... NOT happy with the dealer at all.

    Do you realize you can buy a case of beer for the cost of a scale?

    Basically I do not have a scale...well, not one that can handle lbs.

    Hey, I'll just ship it to you and then you can go down there and weigh it for me.

    I'm thinking I'll just take it off and go ask ups
