    My only thing with offroad/steel bumbers is that I don't tend to offroad enough to warrant one and if I got hit in the rear I'd be worried about frame damage, airbags, and such

    I can understand that. Though in a fender bender such as this, it would save you a headache or two and give a piece of mind when parked in a crowded parking lot with no cameras. Hopefully it's never anything more, in which case I'm not sure if there is a bumper that would protect the frame.

    Headache indeed, the driver that hit me is claiming they arent liable and saying the person behind them that hit them, knocked them into me. So they get to fight about that and I just want my truck fixed :annoyed:

    Sorry to hear about that, but glad its not worse. I never do this myself, but usually your insurance will give you the option of them paying for the repairs and then getting reimbursed from the at-fault party insurance. If your in a hurry, might be worth it.

    That seems really risky to be because I don't trust my insurance to pay me back haha

    Oh believe me the front of her car was almost perfect minus some scratches, a broken license plate cover and some of my precious white pant. I chalk mine up to people not knowing how to drive in the rain

    Meanwhile get a few quotes while they figure out liability.

    Well then I suppose that would be a factor too! lol Honestly, if they get a police report and ok it, its all done legit so they can't just back out, but yeah, ins companies suck.

    Its more about the bumper taking the impact and damage,instead of the frame.
