    Hey guys I wanted to show you all what happened several weeks ago and the fix..
    Here's the story I own a pool service company in So.Florida and approx. 4 weeks ago I was driving down the a main hwy. with a loaded trailer with chemicals on tow traveling around 50 mph on a 45 mph road with 2 vehicles riding next to me (3 lane hwy me in the middle). When the car in front of me decided to stop at a yellow light in the middle of the road and being that my trailer was fully loaded (approx 1200 lbs) and pinned in the middle lane I wasn't able to stop without hitting her about 20 mph. Luckily
    my truck has a 2.5 inch lift and the lady's car was a nissan Altima and her trunk absorbed most of the damages. Here are some pics of the before the fix and the repaired bumper and paint job after.
    MY TRUCK POST ACCIDENT:

    Special props to "4MILESTOGO"... I saw a post he placed on TW called 'SUPER WHITES !!!!!!' and I fell in love with his paint scheme and had the body shop paint a stripe on my truck similar to his in metallic Charcoal with a pinstripe of silver on the outside. Tell me what you think I've been getting alot of compliments about it....

    AFTER:
    This was right out of the shop

    These were taken when lower grill valance was installed and skid plate installed.

    I like it. I would like more if the grille was integrated into the paint scheme somehow, but it looks good as is too.

    Looks good! Have you thought about painting the lower valance to keep the paint scheme going?
