Already need a rear Bumper, Where can I get one?

My wife has been practicing backing the trailer into the driveway. She has been doing well, till last night. I walked in the house to let the dog out, then came back outside to guide her. She has already started backing and jack knifed the truck enough to get the sway control bar caught under the bumper on the corner. When she pulled forward it put about a one inch tear in the bumper. I banged it back in, and it looks ok, but I know its there and it going to bug me.

It's a truck, be happy it is just the bumper and not the whole bed.

Let me see if I got this right . . . . . . . . . . . .

your wife put a small tear in the bottom of the bumper, that you can't see, while practicing backing a camper
you fixed it pretty good with a hammer
she is sorry as hell and feels terrible


OK, negitive side -
truck has damaged bumper

Positive side -
only you and the wife know the damage is there
she is learning a great skill and will be a valuable team member when camping
she "owes you one"

Dude, I say count your blessings and start making plans for the big "pay off"!!!!!!

I recently bought a new chrome rear bumper with sensor holes for my 08 from Tousley Ford Parts Depot. They had the cheapest price, and by far the cheapest shipping.

So if I go w/ an aftermarket bumper from fab fours or road armor, am I going to have to drill holes and mount the factory sensores?
