    So I got rear ended and need a new bumper and tailgate. I've gotten a few estimates and it looks like I'll be getting between $1500 and $2000 from their insurance. What are some good off-road tailgate/bumpers I should look at getting. So far I haven't been able to find any aftermarket tailgates that support the factory backup camera.

    Put another factory bumper on it,just remember if you put a heavy duty bumper on,the next accident you may not be so lucky and end up with a bent frame,since those heavy bumpers do not give like the cheap factory ones do,so your frame will take all the hit.

    The following is my complete nonsensical opinion:
    I'd spend 300 on a new bumper from a car-part.com search. Then 40 bucks on a tailgate net from Walmart. The rest of the 1500 would go towards any mod you've been thinking about doing. For me it'd be a full OME suspension kit with some dakars.
