    I feel your pain, someone backed into mine recently with a hitch and put a nice little dent in it but I like the look of the stocker too and will probably just bite the bullet and have a body shop fix it. Sucks when you take such good care of your truck and shitbags ruin it for you. GL with your fix

    Kid in a lifted Ranger hit my '14 Screw when it was 2 weeks old. I replaced the bumper with a rock-slide engineering bumper that I am very satisfied with. I looked at all their pictures then gave them a call and told them which part of three different bumpers I liked and they made me a custom one for the same price as advertized. For me having additional lights and winch are well worth it.

    This happened to me so I used it as a chance to paint the flares and bumpers.

    Our Venom bumper is slim & is winch capable, also room for lights. PM me for pricing & we can go from there.

    I was hit in a parking lot last Friday, didn't notice until later in the day when I stopped for gas. Thankfully the lady who hit me tracked me down a few days later and stated she would pay if I would send her the estimates. I have only received one so far and it came in at $2251. Wow, that graphic is expensive. I could get off cheaper since it's all superficial, but I'm not paying for it so. Its only a scratched paint on bumper, LR bed area below the graphic between the bumper and flare, the LS graphic is gouged, and I have broken fender flare that I easily reinstalled with oversized washers. I give her props for owning up to her mistake and it goes to show there are still good people in this world.

    That was definitely from a vehicle cuz there's no way a parts cart would do that. Even though the bumper is weak by many standards, it still is pretty rigid and takes a lot to push/bend/crack the metal if your truck was sitting still when it happened. I did something similar with mine two years ago and there was no bending/pushing it back into position. Gutless jag off can't even leave you a note that they fucked up!

    So a little follow up on the repair. I should of just lived with the scratches and just replaced the flare. NOW the bumper is two shades of grey and I have a new graphic that looks like this. I don't think this will disappear over time. They stated it would so I told them I will give them a week.. [​IMG] Hopefully you can see the bubbles on the picture.
