    Had this happen to be from a semi tire. Cracked passenger side, cracked my fog light and took out my front tow cover. The cover piece cost $280. I haven't fixed the bumper yet or the fog light.

    I'm thinking of taking it off for the winter.
    Tony, now that you've had your lip for a while, have you removed it for the winter, or are you leaving it on? I think I'm going to finally pull the trigger, now that my bumper has sustained more scrapes on the underside.

    Last winter it didn't snow. So I just left it on. I have scraped the lip a couple of times because of the lower ground clearance. I'll probably take it off for the winter. I may also just buy a used lip for the winter if I find one locally.

    Well, I plan to pick up a cheap urethane lip and leave it on year round. Because it's flexible I'm banking on its ability to withstand the winter months. I predict it's going to be wicked-cold this year, but not much snow.

THEN a week later, avoided a cat and scratched the left side of my front bumper on a bush... all not too noticeable, the scratches make my car look like its going 100mph graphic wise. any1 know someone selling a satin pearl white front bumper

    I ended this winter with a bang! Some brilliant guy decided to snow blow his driveway and throw everything into the street.

    I came around a corner and had nowhere to go but through the pile of heavy wet snow. The result is another crack this time on the passenger side beneath the fog light. The whole encounter looked like something out of a Liberty Mutual commercial...oh well. At least spring is finally here!

    Thats really sucks man. I joined the cracked bumper club couple days ago. The driver side fender liner came off when doing 70 mph on the highway. I lost some some screws/clips when i took the bumper off a week ago. everything was fine until i went over a slight bump. Epoxyd the back and zip tied it together for now.

    3 years and 34k miles on mine. Finally happened last weekend. Had a couple of scrapes on the underside corners of my front bumper. Pulled into a parking lot with what looked like only a small dip. WHAACK! Another scrape and now a small crack starting from the drivers side underside punched hole (support clip/rivot?) going up just a tad to the front vertical portion of the bumper. I drilled a 1/8 hole at the end of the crack for now.

    Thinking of getting a lip, but not sure how much they cover on the front. I assume it will just crack again if fixed, so I may also buy a new bumper for now, unpainted. And keep it for down the road.
