Default Replacement rear bumper

So I have some rear bumper damage - And am looking to get a replacement.

I found this one for $300 painted to match and shipped - is there anything I need to know? (Im fairly certain this was taken from a crashed vehicle and refurbished, correct?) Thanks!

Paint to match means you paint it...Shipping on that stuff usually kills ya. Try a local keystone or a buddy with a connection.

Agreed. It comes unfinished and you have to get it painted. Look around your area, you should be able to find a rear bumper cover off of a wrecked car in good condition. You won't have that huge shipping cost them.
