    My Rear Bumper is rusted out - My question - is the OEM bumper worth the extra money ? After market is so much cheaper - the OEM on my truck wasn't much quality to begin with - any experience, advise or links appreciated. Thanks.

    Some come with the plastic pads installed and the outer corner braces while others are stripped basic bumper shell. Look at thickness too.
    Here is one example I was looking at:
    Amazon.com: Titanium Plus Autoparts, 2005-2013 Fits For Toyota Tacoma Rear Step Bumper Assy BLACK : Automotive
    Wanted to put a heavy welded steel higher clearance one until I saw all over $1000. but get what you pay for.

    I wouldn’t replace OEM bumper with OEM, unless it’s free from someone upgrading to steel/plate.

    you can get an oem replica for like $240 with the pads, and it will hold up just fine; if pricepoint is your concern
