Odd rear bumper tread

Found this truck for sale but the rear bumper tread looks warped? Do you think this is the result of a crash? I was told by the seller the truck has never been in a crash. Is there anything else that can cause this? And how do you fix it and how much will it cost? Or should I just move on and keep on looking?

I have never seen this before. Any ideas would be great.
Thanks

Strange indeed. I am guessing its not due to an addident but did you try running Carfax on it? That part is rubber and flexible so to me it almost looks like it is fitted incorrectly. RDS or RN sells that part for approx $100 so the replacemnt is nothing significant.

Also, just another idea. If the truck is located someplace else and you can't look at it first hand see if someone else on the forum is nearby and take a look at it for you.

Good luck with your purchase.

Thumbs up

Agreed. The rear bumper looks clean and straight. For a crash to cause the rubber tread to buckle like that, the rear bumper would have to be mangled. Odds are the screws fell out and someone stepped on it a few times causing it to buckle.


Good Luck!

Cheers...

Sometimes they stretch like that. I've seen it before. It's nothing to worry about.

Its goofy looking, but nothing to worry about. Its a good excuse to knock a few bucks off the price.

It is probably missing the screw headed bolts that hold it in. No reason for concern. Just buy some new ones and refit it and it should be fine.

Thanks for the info. I will have to find out some more on this truck.

Any idea what the part is called or part number. I looked on the RN site but could not find it.
