Don't confuse my personality with my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.

A combination of high temp auto paint and duplicolor.

Well, I got my truck back from the body shop today. Originally my truck came with a Xenon Body kit which essentially was just a cover over a stock bumper front and rear. Due to the accident, the rear cover was damaged. I had the option of replacing the Xenon kit or just going with a stock bumper that was PTM'd. By doing that, I would avoid having to shell out my deductible. That is the decision I made and I am not sure I made the right one. With the stock bumper, it left a larger gap between the bumper and exhaust so now I'm going to have to pay to have my exhaust tips raised. I like the looks of the stock bumper but kinda think the Xenon bumper looks better. I'm posting 3 pics below. How it looked before the accident, after the accident, after repairs. Which one do you think looks better?

I liked the xenon bumper cover better. But if you go through the trouble of raising the exhaust you should change your tips to some bigger rectangle ones kingranch4life had them on his and I think it looks really good.

Yeah, I think I did too. I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet. I really don't want to fork out $500 dollars to get the Xenon bumper cover. On the flip side, I have no idea what it would cost to raise/change my exhaust setup.

Should've put all the money towards an ADD venom rear bumper.

I thought about it but it don't think insurance would've covered it. Besides, I've heard bad things about the ADD bumpers rusting.

On another note, I did get my exhaust raised. Looks much better now and the guy that did the work only charged me $20. Also, these will be going in later today as well as led reverse lights.
