Don't know what to do....

Alright so I was driving down a windy road and my daughter wants her blankie (She's a year and half). So I turned around reaching for it and all of a sudden I'm scrapping the guard rail.

Here is the aftermath



Front Fender



Door



Rear Fender






So my question is should I claim it on my insurance? I have full coverage but don't want my rates to go up. Or I can put bedliner around the wheel wells but don't know how well it will blend in with the reflex liner on it now. Or I can get some fenderflares. Not sure if bushwacker or prestige. I am pretty sure the door will buff out but defiently not the fender area. Fenderflares would cover it right up

Glad to hear you and your daughter are ok. I'd most likely claim it if I was in your scenario as it looks like you have a nice truck.

Depends on what your deductible is. If it's $500 or more, don't even bother making the claim. Buff out what you can and try to find a mobile bumper repair guy. Like what car dealers use to touch up their used cars. It should be cheaper, and won't go on your record as a claim.
