    Today some of my Cross Country Teammates called me up and we went out to a mountain that i've been out before, and i got muddy

    And then they left and i went to a place i had not been to, and i went to far and on an overgrown trail, that was barley big enough for a 4 wheeler and this happened





    [​IMG]

    on my 08 1780mi Taco, i'm an idiot, the ironic thing is right before i left the house i told my brother not to do anything stupid, and i had also been warned about it before, my ambition to get muddy took the best of me and i paid for it

    Were on fall break, and i go to a 200 kid high school so they would wonder who it was,


    The closest home Depot is an hour away, and i already told them, were going to get it fixed, i don't know how, but i basically can't go offroading and next time i wreck any of our vehicles, i sideswiped our garage with my dads 01 Infiniti I30 and it gave ripple effects, to get in to our garage you have to make a 90 degree turn and the road is about 3/4 car length, actually its barely at 1 car length and i also put a dent in the bottom of his bumper when i back up in to the bank, which is about 3ft where i was. So i'm not in as much deep shit as everybody thinks, i just do not need to make anymore stupid decisions

    Sorry to hear about you incident.

    You might want to check out classifieds for a used bumper. Like someone upgrading.

    There are lots of Forum boards to look through and Craige's list, check local body shops, I'm sure you can find one cheap.

    Good Luck.

    Word up, plus one! Now you can start picking out your new bumper or try to find a take off bumper from another member who went the custom route. And I'm sure some good wax and elbow grease will take out any scratches you got as long as it's not down to the primer. It's OK, it's a Toyota AND a truck!

    aww hell it just a love tap, I would go the custom route. Personally I am waiting for someone to hit my front bumper so I have a good excuse to get a allpro.

    By the way it's just metal and it's already screwed up so you can't make it worse, I'd try to pull it back into place. That way when you hit the other side you won't feel bad.
