Ok, I can't friggin' believe it. I've had my '05 for ONE WEEK! We hit some very bad winter weather last night/this morning in eastern/northen New Mexico. Snow-packed roads, some ice, near-blizzard conditions. Very bad. But I made it...my 2WD CC pushed through.

Then, I'm THREE MILES from our destination and I fish-tail into a guard rail. @#[email protected]#[email protected]#$!!

So, I damaged my front passenger-side bumper end and bumper filler. I've found them online (http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/search/?Ntt=Nissan+Bumper+titan&Ntk=Main&Ntx=mode+matchallpartial&N=4294967022)

But, I'm assuming you order them paint color notwithstanding? Do Nissan dealerships do body work like this? Meaning, can I go in when I have my reverse sensor looked at and say "hey can you fix this for me as well?"

What color is your truck?
They do have to be painted, and they are not at all difficult to change.

Wallemee is correct. Any competent body shop will be able to color match them for you.

It's smoke. I'm assuming those are the only 2 parts I'll need. It doesn't look TOO bad, but once I get some pics up I'll see what y'all say.

OK, here are some pics I just took. It also looks like the right passenger-side panel is sticking out a bit in one of those pics, but I'm not sure if that's not something that's simple enough a body shop could fix w/o buying a new one.

As for the bumper end and filler, I'll definitely get new ones. The end is scratched and the filler is broken. What do y'all think?

While everybody likes to see pics of accident damage, I think it is safe to say that they also like to see pics of your squaw.

A good body shop mechanic can fix the fender, but it will probably have to be painted? Hard to tell from the photo.

Well, thanks for the offer, but I already ordered the bumper end and bumper filler from carbodyparts.net

I tried calling the body shop the Nissan dealer recommended but no dice, closed. I guess I'll have to waaaaait. Now I gotta find a car wash so I clean all the gravel/sand crap off

At least our Titans have the 3 piece bumper. Imagine if we had a 1 piece, we would have to replace the whole thing! Both of my covers have "battle scars"
