Have your insurance co handle it. If the other driver was backing, they were to yield. Your insurance co should fix your truck, and go-after the other drivers' co for reimbursement. This is, if you have a good insurance co/agent.

This is the reason why I wouldn't trade my bumper for anything!
Sucks to hear man, sorry about everything. Good news is you could probably get the insurance money to cover an aftermarket bumper when reinstalling parts..

Im taking it to a chevy collision center right after i leave the inspection place to get a second quote. I am going to be making sure i get the payout that is equivalent to OEM GM parts.

^Once you have to employ the help of a friend just to lift a bumper to install it you'll never go back to that flimsy arse stock piece lol

It happens to the best us of. I recently had a accident but I ended up putting the stock bumper back on for now. A ranch hand is going on later though.

So after I have my inspections and settle on the amount I'm going to get for repairs, do I take it to my body shop and tell them to fix the dents/paint scrapes and issues and then use the left over money to purchase the bumper and install it? I'm really not sure how the payout works... Do I just get a check? Or do they make sure I install oem parts? Yalls input would be awesome..
