    Dumb question. But I need a a answer. How is the rear bumper packaged and shipped? Is it just wrapped in plastic, or just shipped in a bumper box, (where would one get a box like that) And who is the cheapest shipper? Oh And how much does a 2nd. generation rear bumper weigh, not packaged?

    Swing by a local body shop or dealer and ask for an old box that they got a bumper in.

    The bumper itself is just a piece of black steel. It will NOT include any of the supports or brackets. They come in a large rectangle box (about 5-6FT) and must weigh about 30-40LBS

    Put it on a crate and ship it out, no need for a box.
