Default My bumper had a mishap

So I pull in the local autoparts store last night and backed in a parking spot only to find out that the light pole that was behind my parking space was encased in a very large column of concrete. Needless to say we got introduced ourselves to each other!!!!!! Not all that bad but I'm anal and will be getting a new bumper. Does anyone know where I can find one? I looked all over the web last night and no one has them. I found 1 on EBAY for $362 I think. Shipping would run me $74. Anyone have any other ideas?

Dude! You are about the third person I know that has done this (including me). What is it about those light poles and our trucks? How bad is it? My ding is about the size of a quarter right left of the license plate.

It's pushed in pretty nicely! It raised the plastic up and it is interfering with lowering and raising the tailgate a little. The license plate is a little cockeyed as well. Funny this is my all gig for my back up camera came in the mail yesterday!!!

How is that for irony. Try the dealership and they should be able to order a new one that's painted to match, but I don't know how expensive they would be. With the '09s I doubt you'll find any at a wreckers yet.

well I ordered my bumper. It actually came out cheaper at the dealer than the lone bumper I found on EBAY, plus it will be here tomorrow.

Cool, glad to hear you found it cheaper. Hurry up and put in your backup camera. I have the backup sensors to avoid this. I did it to my last truck!

Same thing happend to me 2 weeks of getting my truck. My friend was in there with me. I was pissed but got over it because I SAW the post but it didnt click in my head. It wasent that noticable though. The plastic below the plate was lifted because oif the small dent in the crome. Few months later I was rear ended and got a new bumper out of it. Now if I bought a new bumper when this happend id be realllllly pissed when I got rear ended.

These are after getting rear ended. Is your plastic step raised like this? Oh yah. I hardly felt when I got hit! The car was a total write of. If I didnt take my hitch off that morning I bet i wouldnt have had much damage,

How much did you pay, if you don't mind me asking?
