Well, last night I took my wife out to see a movie. BTW, Just Go With It is a hilarious movie! I got out to my Titan at about 9:30 after the movie and noticed I had a business card on my drivers side window from my towns police dept. I immediately searched my truck to see if someone had hit me, but instead I saw that some jackass had stole my freakin rear bumper! In the middle of a busy parking lot, somehow a hispanic guy unbolted my rear bumper and took off with it. I have a case number, but the police have no real leads. They know what he was driving, but didn't get a plate number. People these days piss me off! I guess I can file it under my insurance, but I'm afraid it will make my payments increase. Anybody know of anyone selling a chrome rear bumper?

That sucks!! Tail gates were a hot ticket item for thieves, I think they were scrapping them. I had my rear bumper replaced after I got hit and if I remember right it was $260 for the bumper.

Sorry to hear about that! That sucks! Check out car-part.com to find you a good one from a salvage yard. That is the salvage yard dealer network online and anyone can search it. A good bumper from a newer wrecked-in-the-front truck is much better than a cheap replacement from a collision parts house. HTH.

Shane, where did you pay $260 for a bumper? Was it chrome?

Yeah, it was amazing to me too that he got away with it without anyone realizing what he was doing. I mean, taking off a bumper isn't easy as a one man job. I guess I should feel lucky that he left my bolts laying on the ground............. I haven't been that pissed off in a loooooooong time. It's that kind of pissed off that almost makes you not want to find out who did it if you know what I mean

Would have been nice to catch him in the act, crouched down fumbling with the bolts, only to look up just in time to see the 70 yd. field goal attempt.

Yea, i had to replace my chrome one after i had a misunderstanding with a hydro pole....cost close to 700$ instaled

Still have the original, has a ding in it obviously, and the holes for the sensors. Let me know if you'd be interested, it would probably be pretty expensive to ship from up here to you tho.

Well, the local newspaper put a write up about what happened and what the guy looked like and what car he drove. Maybe something will come of it, but I highly doubt it. Nobody I've talked to has ever heard of a bumper being stolen. I guess I'm just the lucky one! LOL

Check Craigslist... It'll be F/S in a few weeks... set up the buy then beat the tar outta him with it while the cops are on the way "Officer, I just used the neccessary force to prevent him from escaping and defended myself...and want him arrested for possession of stolen property too..."

I personally think that stealing any vehicle or part of one is equivalent to western day horse thievery and should be punished as such....hang the son-of-a-***** high for every thief to see.
