    Got up this morning to find my plastic piece on the bumper was hanging off, someone must have hit my truck sometime late last night or early this morning. Anyways I did some JB weld to to fix it but not sure how to reattach it. The piece has three thin tabs at the top that got a little trashed and missing some metal clips. Anybody experience this and might have a solution to fix????

    Well I came up with an idea I hope works. I got some large zip ties and cut them down, heated them and made a bend. I then notched the original tabs that held the plastic bumper piece and used some JB weld to hold the zip ties that I cut and put in place. I haven't attached it yet, I want to give the weld a good 24 hours to set, but I'm getting a little impatient. Hope it holds up.

    I agree, that looks like a good fix. I have the same issue and was wondering what I was going to do. Thanks for the idea.
