Hmmm - it appears to be a one-off custom tube bumper to me.

I know this is a bit off topic, but have you noticed how poorly dealerships detail cars anymore?

I remember back some years ago, when you bought a car, you could eat off of it. When we bought my wife's brand new HHR SS, they didn't detail it at all. Even with my FJ the only gave it a once over and put that damn clear jelly on the tires.

Heck yeah, I'd pull the trigger on that before they change their mind.

That would work or maybe I could initiate a trade, or maybe toyota won't care

I'm confused. Are you going to buy the truck, or try to buy the bumper? They will sell you the bumper off of it? If so, how much? I mean, did you just walk in and say "hey, can I buy the bumper off that FJ out there?"

Pretty much, I was at toyota getting my undercoat, waiting on my FJ and I asked if they would trade my oem bumper (the bumper currently on my FJ) for the bumper on that VD blue FJ on their lot... I left my number and they called the next day and said we will do a straight trade, bumper for bumper, so the one on their lot will be more oem and they think it would sell easier.

Quack, let me figure out the plan first and I will let you know

That's crazy!

Uh, we'll just trade this expensive tube bumper (is that actually a knock-off or an old version?) for your practically worthless stock bumper, and let's call it even! Too bad it doesn't have a lift and rims...you'd be set!

Hell, it wouldn't surprise me if it was hampering the sale of it. Here in my area we get excited when we don't see a middle-aged housewife at the wheel of an FJ...

Saw a guy the other day, but I'm pretty sure it belonged to the wife...had the big soccer ball sticker on the back...

If they are so anxious to make the deal, see if they will handle the unistall/install on both as well. :bigthumb:
