    Hi all,

    Last time I checked in I had just wrecked the front end of my taco. Just got the insurance estimate back and all said and done, the damage is $5200. The AC unit is going to be totally replaced as well as the radiator. If you guys want to see, I'll include the entire list provided by Gieco.

    So included in the cosmetic damage will be a new hood, grille, and bumper. The totally dollar amount allocated for the bumper is just above 700 (with all assembly parts included) so I'm thinking I will take this opportunity to put in a decent after market bumper. Anyone have a suggestion for something close to this price range? I would be able to spend 200-300 extra out of pocket, so I'm looking at close to a grand.

    Relentless was my first thought but there are a few problems as I see it.
    1. Not sure but I assume there is a waiting list at this point and the body shop needs to know whats going on by the end of the week as they are going to start pulling the damaged parts out tomorrow. The owner told me the bumper will be the last thing to be installed though, so I have some time to play with.
    2. Is the bumper the only thing included or do assembly parts come as well?
    3. Relentless is on the west coast, I'm on the east coast. I'm thinking shipping may take awhile.
    4. Do Relentless bumpers only fit on a lifted truck?

    PS - 400 is allocated for the hood including assembly parts (lock and hinges) and 280 for the grille. Feel free to give me some opinions on what you would do. Thanks all

    I'd go with a Relentless or AllPro and just go with a simple lift too (minimal cost ($200-$300)). Shipping cost for the bumper may hurt though. Might investigate east coast suppliers/fabricators.
