    Bought a 2010, and started snooping (a week later), and noticed slight rub marks on the crossmember right behing the brush guard. I inspected the lower part of the bumper, the front frame, all bolts, fender bolts, etc. I thought maybe it was damaged in transport. Everything is new and un-tampered with, however, I noticed the tow hook was used.

    It has snowed tremendously in our area. What I'm thinking is the dealer pulled it out of it's parked area.

    It is possible that the brush guard flexed back from the pressure of the snow?

    Or they secured it to the transport truck via the tow hook.

    Sent an E-mail to my dealer.

    In the meantime, does anyone make an aftermarket crossmember? How about a stronger brushguard? I don't know if I'm ready to get an All Pro bumper yet. :)
