Because hitting your head when you're sitting up and not expecting a tail gate there pisses you off.

Mine almost got my boot through it because I was so mad. It did get tossed. Lol.

Looks nice, Chris. I do agree - the black is sharper.

Does the plastic part snap off of the rest of the bumper? I've got some rust issues that I need to sand down and paint -- if the plastic comes off, it will make my job a lot easier.

You got pics while it's being worked on?
