As a quick followup to my earlier post about preventing rear bumper damage on your Toyota Highlander, I just wanted to share with you another bumper protection option that I recently ran across…
There’s now a third-party bumper protector (the so-called XU50) that is very similar to Toyota’s chrome protector, except that it costs about 40% less.
Here’s a direct link: Toyota Highlander XU50 Bumper Protector
As you can see, it’s made of ABS plastic and aluminum, has a brushed silver finish, and adheres to the rear bumper using 3M adhesive strips. All in all, it’s very similar to the Toyota option, but for a lot less money.
As of this writing, it’s selling for $59.99 w/free S&H, as compared to $100-ish for the official Toyota solution. Seems like a pretty good deal.
