That's the idea, but I'm not going to be a hard a$$ about it. There's another thread for that.

No, I wasn't posting pictures of my own dent - but I was one second away from buying another on E-Bay a couple of hours ago. F-350 with slightly different paint scheme but still in brown and sand.

I live up north of Fort Collins but have gone down to down town Denver to see a friend occasionally. Small cars and other trucks just dive off to the side. This over south of Colfax really tight little streets.. Part of what I like about my truck is the aggressive front end. I just found some factory bumper guards They will make it look like it has fangs. Just got a smoking deal on some new to me wheels and tires. paint is next. When I figure out how to post pics I will get opinions on a paint scheme. It will be brown and white just sure on the arrangement.

I'd like to find some of those bumper guards. Are there any more where you found yours?

That's what I'm finding. I have found some but they are the wrong shape for my bumper. Mine has the square profile at the top and the only ones I've been able to find are the ones that fit the rounded point type bumpers.

My problem is I can't always get my camera running quick enough. If I still had my Blackberry there might be a few more on here. I've missed several that I may not have a chance at again. There are also a couple I need to get that I just haven't been able to at the right times.

Here's one doing what dents do best, working. Snapped this right after I saw the driver walk from the cab into the trench he apparently just dug with the backhoe.

That's the coolest thing about Dents, you see them in tip top restored or show condition to beat up workhorses everywhere. Just to be fair I see a surprising amount of Bumpsides doing the same things as well.
