Youre fixing it because you need the belt to ride. My "slightly bent" bumper doesnt affect the way my truck drives :P

Just one of those things I look at and think about fixing every now and then, just need to find a good clean bumper THAT ISNT CHROME and hasnt had something silly like fog lights mounted to it.

I will never go back to a chain drive. Too much maintenance and cleaning. Shaft drive isn't bad, but isn't belt cheaper (to produce) and a better % of power transferred to the road?
