...is, in fact, a steel bumper. Saved me from more extensive damage from the Chevy Cruze that rear-ended me. Tomorrow starts the process of making her whole again.

Glad to hear.
But it is steel in a way.
Not the steel bumper of old but better than most.

That's half the reason why I bought a truck. People drive like crazies out here in Seattle. Glad you're alright. :thumbsup:

This is one of the reasons I installed the tow package. It has more steel to help with this kind of impact. Hope you get it repaired soon.

Which vehicle did that Modelo can fall out of??
Glad to hear your damage was minimal!
Hahahaha, nice catch! :like:


Ouch, bet the Cruze had much worse damage.
Oh ya, the Cruze is toast. Air bags deployed, hood was peeled back, driver door wouldn't open, and the car wouldn't start so the highway patrolman had to push it to the shoulder with the bumper of his car.


Sorry to hear that. Do you have a picture of the Cruze?
My biggest regret in this whole ordeal is that I didn't take pictures of the Cruze damage. If I can get one from the insurance company I'll share it, but I'm going to bet that's a fruitless venture.
