    I bet you could find one if you put the request in the Wanted to Buy forum. I see a ton of bumpers for sale all the time!

    Hope this helps! Shane /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    To preach a bit, thats one of the reasons they have e-brakes, (that work) and why they should be used all the time.

    Living in a hilly area, this I've known all the time I've been driving.

    Another tip that you can use when you don't have good ebrakes is to put the truck in low range before putting it into park. This cuts the force on the parking pawl in half (or by whatever your low range ratio is). If you actually put it into 4WD, that also decreases the probability that a broken driveshaft or U-joint will let you start rolling.
