ok so im gonna get new parts to fix the damage but i have to decide on one thing.

do i stay with the stock look and paint the gray stuff body color.
or do i go SS bumper with fogs, and roll pan with SS style tips in it.

well 2 stories

valance: driving back from savanah GA on interstate early morning in contruction zone NO TRAFFIC!!!...im coming up on a guy im in left lane about 70mph hes on phone and decides to switch lanes without checking or signal just pulls in as im next to him runs me off the road as we are coming up to a bridge over water. as i swerved to keep from colliding i hit a construction barrel. as i hit the brakes trying to regain control he speeds off and gets away...i was pissed from ga to home...broke turn lamp, valance, and scratched bumper and lip of fender...best part though is the turbo diesal behind me was towing a long trailer...ive never seen someone slam on brakes and switch lanes so quickly and smoothly in a diesal like he did i was in awe haha

bumper: got off work one day and go to my truck have a flat tire a nail about 1" in it...so i throw on spare and go home to change then get this fixed...as i am going home i get behind three vehicles, a car, tree removal truck, and 3 week old z71 silverado. i look out the window for no more than a sec and when i turn back the car takes the famous "last second turn" and makes them slam brakes...i was a little late...hit the z71 trailer hitch reciever at 25mph...not a scratch on his truck. he freaks out and stares at his hitch for like 5 min yellin "i just bought this 3 weeks ago" then finally looks at mine and says "guess i lucked out sucks for you huh"...i blew up he hit a nerve i already had a bad day at work, flat tire, now this...i blew up on him, scared him too...lol anyways he said not to wrry bout it since no damage on his truck...i went home and punch my brick house so hard i chiped off some of the brick...haha

anyways thats how the damage got there...just using it as a chance to upgrade!! im thinkin SS bumper but i dont kno for sure yet
