    IMG_2855.jpg IMG_2856.jpg I am looking for options for front and rear bumper replacements to make my truck more durable against everyday drivers. I live in Texas DFW metroplex area. I was going home from work on Tuesday and got bumped from behind when waiting in a right turn lane. The damage is minor looks like the bumper is falling off on the passenger side.

    I've done some searching and looked at several sites regarding bumper options. I just don't want to have to cut or have cut any parts of the truck. I'd rather have the entire piece removed and replaced.

    The rear bumper from 4x4Labs and the one from Southern Style Off-road both look to be full replacement without cutting. Does anyone know if this is true?

    The front bumper from Pelfreybuilt looks like and it says that there is no cutting needed. On it you have an option for steel or aluminum I assume the difference would be the weight. Anyone have this one?

    Here are some pics from right after the accident. After driving it yesterday I noticed that the gap is getting larger so the bumper seems to be breaking more. Insurance is looking at it next week. I'm thinking this might be the best time to do an upgrade.

    In your case bumpers are going to be a pain because you have the blindspot moniter and parking sensors, in the front maybe try a bull bar

    There is no blind spot monitor. There are parking sensors. The rear bumper by Southern Style Off-road has an option to have the holes for the sensors included. I'm looking at the Pelfreybuilt front bumper have not asked them about the parking sensors.

    When I purchased my 4Runner blind spot monitoring was something I wanted, I was told it was not an option. I added small stick-on blind spot mirrors to my side mirrors and that works pretty well.
