Hey guys....Well as luck would have it, I backed my new truck into a light pole, pretty hard at that and put a nasty dent in my rear bumper. What are my options? Would the OEM bumper be the most cost effective? Or would a tubular steel style bumper like everyone has work better for the money? This is on a 2002 Taco 4x4. Thanx, as I am not ready for "battle scars" just yet!

depends, you could probably get an OEM one here for <$100 plus ship.
lots of us have beefier ones for wheeling. Stronger, some offer better departure angles plus looks better

jsut because you have a stonger bumper or what ever doesn't mean your ready for battle scars. if you want your truck to look new, don't wheel it. dents and carange is the risk you take when you wheel. I have several small dents but I still have an adversion to caved in sides.

A brand new Toyota bumper from toyota costs $312. For a couple bucks more, you could get a stronger aftermarket bumper.

Check out bentup, $350 + shipping, here <http://www.bentup.com/RearBumpers.html>

Do they bolt up?

Does that aftermarket bumper mention, aside from needing to be painted, bolt right up? also, who makes a good tubular bumper?

shipping coast to coast is just over $50, UPS, cheaper with Fedex ground.

We build all kinds of custom bumpers and our rear tube wrap around is built to bolt right up! But if you want to go the afforable route we have a couple stock bumpers laying around with small scrathes or maybe a little dent or two? 20-50?
