I bought my 13 in February 2013 and in April some scrotal skin tag dented my front bumper cover at the Orlando airport when it was parked long term and didnít leave a note.

It was only like $600 of damage to replace the cover, unfortunately I was stupid enough to let the insurance do it, and now the vehicle has a MAJOR collision advisory on Carfax, not that it matters at this point.

It sort of mattered when it was new.

I think he didn't want to admit that a T. rex kicked the side of the truck on his way home from the local establishment.


Could have been a 12" trenching bucket flipped backwards so it scoops away from the arm, not into.

I've always bought CPO cars, so always assume there's a random scratch somewhere. I don't even notice or look for the first scratch anymore especially with all the road construction that's been going on around me. Our highways and interstates are borderline offroading itself.

So much this.

I'm also a bit of a car car nerd, in terms of washing/polishing/waxing/etc.

I come from sports cars, and mine were driven on time attack style tracks, and they weren't 'track cars'.

You're gonna get some rock chips. You're gonna get some rubber streaks, and if you're over confident you might get some more if you slide off track. The same is true of a 4Runner/Jeep/Tacoma/whatevs.

We buy these things not to be museum pieces, but because they're a tool to engage in a hobby, but that doesn't mean you just #SendIt into a stand of hawthorne trees like a clown. A 2 stage polish session, a good coat of wax, and a porter cable will keep bringing it back to like new in a TON of cases. Unless it's a black one, and then may god have mercy on your soul...

However, if you ding my fu&#ing door in the Costco parking lot I will drag your car into a ditch filled with farm runoff...

A couple of weeks ago I got up Monday morning with a bit of a fat head, didn't help that the wife was ragging on me. Go to load the dog up and have a head clearing walk in the woods, get outside to the truck ('19 Black TRDprem, not a scratch or dent, never been off road yet) and got to wonder how my rear bumper is sorta hanging off a bit on the driver's side. Mind, I park on the street, and my wife's car (VW Golf TDI) is parked behind my truck. I go back upstairs and kinda laugh while I tell my wife maybe it wasn't an uneventful drive home last night. When I go back to take another look, turns out I backed into her car and hit the passenger side of her front bumper with my rear bumper DRIVER's side. Knocked my plastic panel off but didn't do anything but a little scratch on the VW (amazing I didn't smash the headlamp cover). Some research and a warm day I managed to unbolt and re-secure the panel as good as new (except for my pride)...
