    As you all know my Tacoma took a hit from one of our Company drivers in the yard last week. Got the Estimate of 3K to take the dent in the bed out and replace the left sensor and the left corner of the bumper and cover. That includes parts and labor. After speaking to the Body Shop how much I would save by not having the rear Bumper fixed and instead go with an after market unit. He told me about $ 700.00 So my question could somebody please direct to a place where I can order an aftermarket bumper between 500.00 to 700.00 to bolt right on to my Tacoma I don,t need anything fancy just something better.Anything I found so far is over 1000.00. If you have a pic that would be sweet too. My thought why replace the broken plastic with new plastic and have to get it fixed again when I can get a better bumper just in case I run into something down the road I do have the tow package on my truck Thanks for your help. Cheers

    Same thing happen to me, plastic bumper fell apart with sensors. The fender, under the tail light, also got dented a bit and paint came off. Other persons insurance gave us ~1,800.

    Get any type of high clearance rear bumper. If there is damage to the rear fender who cares b/c it gets chopped off anyways. I went with the T3 CBI high clear bumper because it looked the cleanest.

    I didn't add all that camping stove top swing out crap because it looks like dog shit and Im not trying to drive a RV around town. It was ~1700 with shipping to my doorstep + powder coating.

    Added bonus: with any high clearance bumper your truck doesn't look like a minivan. It looks more like the old school toyota pick-ups or gen1 tacos with all that beautiful ground clearance.

    edit: you can ask to add holes for your four back up sensors. However, the BMS square sensor (if your truck comes equipped with it) is not supported.
