Driving to work today and was rearended by a Pre-runner. I was just starting to go after the light turned green, when an armored truck 3 or 4 cars ahead decided to pull a u-turn and so of course we all brake, except the guy behind me...

I can't SEE any damage, my rear door opens and closes no prob. His Toy looks like it was punched in the grill by my spare. Got his insurance info and all, but any thoughts on getting it checked out? Obviously neither of us were travelling very fast, as we both were originally stopped for the light.

Thanks.

If he hit your spare, the door could be dented or bent...too bad he didn't take the rear bumper out, ARB and Exp 1 bumpers are sweet! lol

X2... have it checked out. If something is wrong it will be paid for... if you figure it out a year or so down the road it comes out of your pocket.

How does that work? With any accident I've been involved in where damage occurs, my Insurance company always replaces w/factory parts. How do you go about having them cut a check? I want to be ready for that juuuuuust in case.

The repair companies will work with you. They will get paid by the insurance company for OEM parts and you will have to pay the difference but it will be cheaper than if you just bought it straight out. That's how I got my Demallo front bumper. A lot of others have done it as well.

I cannot believe the guy that hit you had insurance!!! That never happens to me, I always get hit by the deadbeat loser. Definitely get it checked, thats what those highway robbers called insurance companies are for. :)

Assuming the info I got from him is valid and accurate anyway...
