    Came out to my truck after eatting dinner with my wife and this is what I found. This was the first time in two years that we have gown out alone with one another, what a kick in the jimmy!
    Well now I am asking you all, should I turn it into my insurance $500 deductible or touch it up with some spray paint/touch up paint?

    Generally no increase in rates for not-at-fault insurance claims... your call whether you want to pay $500 and get it fixed right, or bandaid it.

    Ask who does touch-ups at a dealership. I had worse scrathes repaired for $100. I also ordered an avid light bar for future incidents.

    All ready made my mind up, I'm going to touch it up and order an AVID light bar. Protection for the future and it should cover up any imperfections in the touch up or at least draw station away from them. As soon as I saw it my first thought was I wish I wouldn't have waited to order the light bar.

    Insurance will just replace that. The bumpers are textured and cannot be fixed. DYI and save the cash.

    I just got my bar. I didn't get it primarily for protection, more cosmetics, but the protection against this type of incident is good to have. It's not going to save your front end in a wreck, but shopping carts or minor fender benders will not damage the paint. The thing I like about the avid bar, as opposes to others, is that it kind of acts like a mini-bumper in the sense that it covers the entire front bumper and extends a bit to the side under the fog lights. Most bull bars run up under the hood but do not extend along the sides of the bumper.

    Just finished washing my truck and found a 6 inch long blue streak across my door. Luckly mine just buffed right out.

    If I saw that damage on my truck I would be furious.

    I know your truck is new and it is wrong for however the damage to have happened. I would be super pissed as well but it looks only to be paint damage.

    Over time it will get jacked up from stones and bug guts anyways. I would save my insurance for something more meaningful and just hit it with touch up paint.

    Avid would have perhaps been enough if it was a slow enough bump. I'd tell the wife that a plate bumper wouldn't cost much more than a deductible and wouldn't raise your rates. If she balks, compromise with the Avid!

    Liking mine so far, espeically after I got lights on.
