Nope, the quote listed an aftermarket look a like replacement bumper, not gonna happen. I don't know how much more the OEM one will be but I have OEM and I'm getting OEM or aftermarket of my choice put on there.

EDIT: So OEM looks to be around $650 for direct replacement of everything damaged on the rear bumper, a little less for a painted rear bumper. I know I can get a Tactical Armor Group rear bumper for that price, the Shrockworks would be $840 for the way I wanted so I would have to shell out a little money for it, but ~$300 is way easier to come up with than $840. My question is, is the TAG bumper a good one or should I stay away?

I dont know for sure but I've been told by many people that driving around with the ball hitch in and no trailer is illegal for that reason, atleast where i live. I agree though to an extent, if someone is stupid enough to rear end me then i dont feel bad for them.
Its such a pain in the *** dealing with an accident, dealing with insurance companies and body shops. I know because my wife got rear ended in our frontier couple months ago.

I thought it looked a little bug-eyed...

Plenty to choose from

Several CF Members were disappointed with their TAG Bumpers. Common complaints were, rough edges and welds and poor finish. I think you should hit the ins co up for the cost of a BRAND NEW OEM bumper and buy the Calmini for $349. Rear Bumper

I put this together a while back, check it out.

Just make sure you have a good look at the frame between the leaf spring perches. This is where mine and other frames have bent from milder rear-end hits (but we both had hitches on).

I'm going to another shop this next week to see what they say. They come highly recommended and are are the only Mercedes Certified repair shop in the three states near me. If it's good enough for MB, it's probably good enough for a Frontier haha. They won't skimp and my friend, who has a shop, has worked with them before and highly recommends them.

I will not settle for a replica bumper. I will only have OEM of aftermarket of my choice. From what my local dealer said the OEM is probably around $650 for everything. I am also looking into diminished value, but that could be a while out, and might prove a bit tricky to agree on a number. I'm mostly waiting on the insurance adjuster to get ahold of me.
