Show your Rear!

Well - your trucks REAR that is!

Last night - after backing into a stupid 4' bollard and racking my new bumper (replaced after an accident - rear ended by a big big truck) - now my new bumper is racked up on one side with a big dent!

I want a new rear bumper - one that will handle a slow 4mph back in smack!

Fab Four, Buck Stop - what are the options out there - what are you guys running?

I read in one of the recent diesel magazines a bumper company that incorporates the rear sensors too -

(and no - I didnt pay attention to the rear back-up sensors - I dont even remeber them beeping - was busy talking to my son about something - dont remember what then WHAM!!! )

The only two bollards in the whole stupid parking lot and I had to hit one of them!

Pic's coming but imagine half of the rear bumper bent upwards - not alot but enough to notice.

Ticked me off. And I was just getting ready to go in and see Alvin with my son and GF! Still saw the movie - bumper still ticked me off though.

I didnt even see the yellow bollards - Sure - I looked, but with the swing of the truck - they were not in my view.

The movie was GREAT! - I am a huge fan of that type of animation! I think I laughed more then my son (8) . It's a good movie. 38 year old kids love it!

I'll check out Ranchhand.

And the movie was really pretty good. Good story line - funny.

Animation sure has come along way -
