I'm thinking about getting one installed on my RAV4 cuz it protects the hood of the car from small rocks hitting it.

Yup the pre-cut ones are not cheap at all

Just took a look at that superbumper site and two things came to mind.Yes physically I'm fine thanks to a better built car. But emotionally not so much! Pissed off at the driver who hit my brand new car and afraid everytime I see someone driving so close to me. Anyway, has anyone here ever tried the products this site offers for rear end collision protection? I wonder if it will work for the hybrids we drive? superbumper.com
I think It might be more harm then good, but thats just the way I see it.Oh ok thanks for your input. And are you saying these kind of things might do more harm than good? If so, what else can be done to avoid people slamming into you? It never happened to me before with my prius and thousands miles of driving with it. Maybe it was smaller so people behind me saw the oncoming traffic better? Or I just got really unlucky and happened to be driving in front of this disracted driver that morning. Seems like she had a similar accident happened to her just a couple years ago too. *Sigh*
I just installed a protective bumper step on my Rav4 hybrid. Having already installed a 1 ¼ inch Curt hitch receiver, I found a little bumper for when my bike rack or trailer is not being used.Actually I would install better things to protect your back bumper and yourself. Today I got rear ended just a few feet away from a light stop. Yes cars in front of me had to slow down and stop fast yet everyone in front of me and myself was able to stop without hitting each other. But that wasn't the case for the driver behind me and she crashed into me. I think she just wasn't paying attention because I did not see any skid marks or any sign of braking effort from her car. And looks like she just slammed to my car straightly from looking at the damage of her car which has a completely smashed nose. But my car held it very well just the chrome bumper fell of along with the back sensors. So having taller car definitely helped to have less damage plus no neck or back injury etc. as of now. Overall I was amazed how well the car took the crash today to compare to the small car of the lady who hit me!
Once you have a trailer receiver and wiring, it is simple ... just slip it in the receiver, attach the receiver pin and plug it in.@Jlwatts, thank you for the bullybumper info. I'll explore more about that. And how hard was it to install that to the Rav4 hybrid?
I think that it is a good idea! In Minnesota, it costed me $600.00 total front end and rear bumper area. If you can do it yourself, you will save money! :laughI've always installed the 3M film on my hoods & fenders. Had a guy who does this for a living do it locally - Paid under $200 CDN installed! The dealers would have wanted $500 - $600 for the same thing.
