Fog lights and bumpy are back on. It's a real PITA doing yourself, the new bumpy is a lot heavier than the original one. hint... loosen up all 6 brackets before hand. They are very adjustable when loose and makes fitting the new bumpy a lot easier. Now its just snap and go, shouldn't be to bad for the rest of it. But it will have to wait until the rain passes.
Well in excess of 1/2 the cost of the body shop estimate. Grand total of $618.09 for parts.
6 new bumper brackets. The body shop wanted to just replace the passenger side 3.
new air deflector that I have yet to put on because I'm short 4 clips from hitting the deer
new clips for the air deflector
new upper bumper cover
new lights (including high output bulbs)
i kept the fog lights because they were undamaged. But a new pair would cost $54.00
So out of the $1698.21 estimate, minus my $100.00 deductible, minus $618.09 for the new parts. I got paid around $980.12 to fix my own truck. This is an exact number. Included having all parts shipped to my home. Of course when I shop on line I only buy if it's the lowest price and there is no tax and free shipping (I don't like paying Dick Durban sales taxes one little bit). I needed no special, new tools I had all the tools already. I did all the work myself, total time was about 6 hours, I figure about another 30 minutes to put the air deflector on. So basically I made $150.79 an hour to fix my truck no too shabby for a crealcritter
