I think the 2005 and up bumper will fit. You may get different colors if it is not chrome, it may be grey or silver, but it should still fit. But if you were rear ended, have them buy you a new one.

Still fighting my rear ended issue
Old lady in a Toyota rear end me, cop profiled and said the damage was all ready there, verbally fought with him he turned and said it was her fault.
So she lied to her insurance saying that it was my fault before I could call.
Been a huge headache but the damage is minimal pull the crappy tin bumper out and only damage on the bed is a small dent.

I hired a lawyer, he is taking over the case, the insurance accepted the fault and its giving me 3300 just for repairs, thats why Im looking for a new type of bumper, something with a hitch since mine does not have it

Don't feel too bad. When I bought my 2015, it only took 3 months for a 16 year old to cut a turn too short and hit a stop sign.


It took me months to sort things out with our insurance companies because they couldn't figure out fault. I raised hell until the other company took 100% fault. Do the same, it looks like you lawyered up, luckily I didn't have to, but be in contact with both insurance companies, state your intentions and threaten to sue the other driver. They will gladly fix your truck and take fault than have to pay out a settlement. A rear-end collision should be pretty cut and dry, regardless of what the police said.

Do yourself a favor. Go to your original dealer and use THEIR bodyshop for the repairs. Your truck is new, they will make sure it comes back looking new. I am meticulous about bodylines. If I can't tell my truck was in an accident, no one can.

Also, get a dash cam, front and rear, if you can afford. This is in all of my vehicles:

Can't believe this is even an issue. Since when is getting rear ended in ANY way negotiable as to who is at fault? I would be lawyered up in a heartbeat against a police department if one of their officers tried to insinuate that damage was already present on my vehicle. I'm desperately afraid of this situation too as I work at a major state university so I'm constantly surrounded by idiots in Hondas and basically kids who have less than 2 years of driving experience. The threat to my new truck is real each and every day I go to work, and of course, I'm currently underwater on the loan as it's worth less than what I owe for at least the next 11 months. The joys of new vehicle ownership.

My brother gave up USAA insurance way back when because he was hit by some teenage girl who's father just happened to be a general of some kind. Pretty cut and dry that it was her fault, cop agreed and all of that jazz. Both parties were USAA insurance. My brother had been a measely E-5 in the navy, so of course this general called USAA and somehow had them switch the blame over onto my brother for the accident. This insurance company is run by many ex-high ranking officers so they sorta have a good ol' boys club thing going on in the upper management. He had to lawyer up on that but said he wouldn't put himself in that position ever again so left USAA because of it. Luckily I have not encountered that in my time with them, but I wouldn't sit idly by and allow that to happen either.

It's almost to the point where I feel I need to do what they do in Russia and get some dashboard cameras placed on my truck.

I'd offer up my rear bumper to the OP, but alas I feel the need that I should keep it as a spare for that inevitable time when I get rearended or back into a rock myself.

Get some. They're so cheap, not to mention, I catch a lot lot of stuff, I'm ready to start my own Youtube channel.

I got dashcams in all my vehicles too. The Mobius action cam is under a $100 from Amazon. If the video evidence is in my favor it's going to be utilized.

I just replaced my Crome rear on my 2016
05 to 2016 I know fits. With or without sonar. Don’t buy aftermarket Crome it will rust before it’s even put on. I went with a black primer and had it color matched to my paint

$3300 will pay for a very nice offroad bumper with a built in receiver for towing... (Just noticed the date on this thread... Old and dead? Seems to happen a lot on this site...)
