Rear end collision

So I was stopped at a red light. This guy having a diabetic fit (low blood sugar) decides he didn't see, slams into me at 30mph. I love my Commander, his car was totaled, but my Commander took it like a champ!

Yes, he was in a little car. I can't remember what kind he was driving. Thankfully he had insurance and they're taking care of it. In the end I'll come out with a brand new bumper. I would like to mod it and put a steel rear bumper on it. Hoping I can just pay the difference but waiting on the est. now.

I got rear ended just like that hardly any damage and the estimate I got was $700. Of course it depends on the company and the area you're in but you'll make out ok. I told the adjuster I just wanted enough to buff out the scratches and they still gave me $700. I also has a bolt on hitch that was bent but that was a small portion.

Wow,

To note it was in a 12000 can.dollar rear end collision before I bought it. Can't find a single tell inside or out and she rides so smooth.
