REAR BUMPER GUARDS

Want a nice accessory, with functionality AND an inexpensive price tag? Try a Rear Bumper Guard. I had never thought to add such a thing to my brand new Honda Pilot, but when just mere days after leaving the car lot with it, I exited a store and noticed someone had backed up into my bumper, leaving scratches along the nicely painted bumper I ONCE HAD. Did someone leave a note to inform me that they had bumped my car?  Of course not! I was livid!

 I searched online for something to add to the rear end of my vehicle that would protect me from these bumps from careless drivers, and found Rear Bumpers Guards that were not much over $200.00—something I could actually afford. I thought on it for a few days and went to a Body Shop to see how much it would cost to actually just repair the bumper and hope it would never happen again. Well, turns out, my nice, silver paint job was the hardest to repair due to the shiny flecks of paint that the color silver holds. I got the bad news….$700.00 to take the bumper off, sand it down completely and re-paint the bumper. I was beside myself that a mere bump to the back of my new car was going to cost me $700.00 to fix it like new, even when it was only 10 days old. I just couldn’t afford it. A couple of weeks pass, and low and behold, it happens again??! I came out of the grocery store and there was someone’s nice black paint across my bumper, along with a dent. That was it—I went back to the internet for the original solution. I purchased a nice Rear Bumper Guard by Black Horse Off Road, and it arrived 6 days later. My husband attached it in about 30 minutes and we were set. I looked at it for a bit and realized I actually LIKED it; I liked the way it looked. It gave me an “off road” look, covered the scratches, and I only spent about $200.00??!! Why didn’t I do this BEFORE the first accident?

It’s been 3 years and the Rear Bumper Guard is holding strong. I have even noticed another little scratch on this Bumper Guard, where someone ELSE had bumped my car from behind. The only difference was that I was able to remove the streaks of paint from the bumper guard—it had done its job and then some! I also get compliments on it, and asked where I purchased it from. I got it from Truckstuffusa.com and was pleased not only with the item, but with the service from this company! I consider myself a happy shopper and will probably add one of the Front Bumper Guards as well, seeing as the Rear Bumper Guard has done its job so well.
