    Do back in November, THIS happened. I replaced many original parts with the 2019 LED lights, Pro front-end (parts were the same cost or slightly cheaper!).

    Then in January.... This dude in a Land Rover was on his phone (cited for distracted driving) and hit a parked Subaru into the front of my parked Tunrda :(

    The body shop owner sent a text "DUDE WTF"
    The Subaru was totaled... (notice how far it was pushed)

    Thankfully the headlights were not damaged...

    Pro Grille is backordered until the 10th.. I've been in a rental since Jan 20th...
    I may go find a front steel bumper with a cattle guard....

    That sucks. Feel sorry for the Subaru owner but at least the Tundra wasn't first in line.

    Ugh. That sucks. Some vehicles are just magnets, and it sucks a bunch when it's yours. If you opt for a beefier bumper let us know what you go with.

    I hope that’s the worst for your truck and the rest of its life is smooth sailing. {{sending positive karma}}

    Obviously it’s only one pic but the Subaru is totaled? How much damage does the back have?

    It was 80 yesterday, it's 68 now and it should be 72 tomorrow...
    we will probably pay a heavy price sometime in March though.
