Got my CBI T3 bumper back from paint and it is installed. Super happy with how it turned out! I’d like to add a little backstory with this post on why I chose a replacement bumper. In high school I had a 2004 Silverado. It had a ranch hand replacement bumper on it. Back in 2016 I was a junior in high school. That year I was involved in a head on collision that destroyed my Silverado. The motor was shoved back into the firewall, the dash shattered etc. if it wasn’t for that ranch hand bumper I probably wouldn’t be here today. That bumper saved my life. I walked away with zero injuries. I made myself a promise that day that any truck I ever owned would have a replacement steel bumper on it.

Color matching steel bumpers isn’t that common and yours looks damn good.

Interesting story too. Hopefully this one never has to do that.
