    Was backing up tonight and talking to my son at the same time, hit a lightpole and the bumper crumbled like a pop can. Didn't even hit it that hard. Sweet :mad:

    And you even have a back up cam. That's pitiful.

    I am ashamed, my 7yo son just said, "huh that sucks"...nice. My wife had the look like she knew I was thinking about a new bumper, no happy.

    That's what happened when I let my wife drive my truck to work while her car was acting up.

    Mine isn't totally trashed though, pushed the bumper closer to the box on the one side and put a little crease in the bumper. I want an aftermarket bumper, something wife proof, hehe.

    I know the story. does your bumper look a little like this? I hit a light pole on day 1 of my wildland fire academy over the summer. was only going like 5-8mph around there.

    Haha, hey, sorry, didn't mean it as an insult. Just thought it was funny that it recently happened to my truck too. I'm surprised how flimsy the bumpers are on these trucks tho, as if it isn't bad enough I have to pull the tailgate off when I'm loading pallets with a forklift because I'm scared it'll get trashed.

    If you want an All Pro bumper I have one with the side pieces and hitch. I'm local too.

    I'm sure there is nothing we can say to you that makes you feel worse than your wife has made you feel. I've got one banked because my wife smacked a BMW about a month ago so I have 1 freebie "accident" in the bank since I was a gentleman and didn't give her shit for it.
