Smile 2011 F250-F350 FRONT BUMPER PROBLEM

HEY YA'LL
JUST WANT TO PASS A LITTLE INFO I RAN INTO THE OTHER DAY WHILE I WAS AT THE FORD DEALERSHIP. I HAD TO BRING MY WIFE'S CAR IN FOR REPAIRS. AN WHEN I PULLED UP IN THE BAY I WAS BEHIND A 2011 FORD F350
DUALLY KING RANCH. I NOTICIED THE HOOD WAS UP WHEN I WENT BY. AFTER I TOOK CARE OF MY CAR I ASKED THE SHOP FOREMAN WHAT WAS WRONG WITH THE DUALLY. WHEN I WENT BY I NOTICIED THE GRILLE WAS IN THE BED, AND THERE WAS A GALLON OF COOLANT SITTING ON THE ENGINE. JUST ASKING IF IT HAD ENGINE PROBLEMS BEING THEY HAVE A NEW ENGINE OUT THIS YEAR. THE FOREMAN SAID NO, NOTHING WRONG WITH THE ENGINE,
THE OWNER HAD PICKED UP A ROCK AND IT HAD WENT THROUGH THE BIG OPENING IN THE FRONT BUMPER, HITTING WHAT HE CALLED A SECONDARY
RADIATOR FOR THE ENGINE. HE SHOWED ME THE SPOT WHERE THE ROCK HIT.
IT WAS DOWN ABOUT A INCH FROM THE BOTTOM AND ABOUT SIX INCHES FROM THE RIGHT CORNER OF THE RADIATOR. HERE'S THE KICKER HE SAID IT WASN'T UNDER WARANTY AND IT WOULD COST ABOUT $1600.00 DOLLARS IN REPAIRS TO HAVE IT FIXED. THE OWNER WOULD HAVE TO FOOT THE BILL. I TOLD HIM OOOOOKKKKKKK. WHEN I GOT HOME I STARTED LOOKING FOR A GRILLE TO PUT IN THE HOLE THAT I HAVE. I HAVE A 2010 FORD F350 LARIAT DUALLY CREW CAB. I FOUND ONE FROM BILLET AND IT LOOKS REALLY NICE IN THE HOLE BEHIND THE LICENSE PLATE. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE YOU CAN GO TO MY PROFILE AND LOOK AT THE PICTURES OR CHECK OUT MY GROUP PAGE AT REALLYCOOL DUALLY'S. ONE THING I LIKE TO SAY ABOUT THE BUMPERS, THERE IS PROBABLY A REASON FORD PUT THE HOLE IN THE BUMPERS, BUT I WOULD RATHER PAY A LITTLE FOR A GRILLE TO KIND OF STOP A ROCK THAN TO HAVE NOTHING AT ALL AN PAY THE HIGH PRICE LATER ON DOWN THE ROAD. THANKS FOR READING

I'm sure his comprehensive insurance covered most of it.
