Going to get the repair estimate at one of the local Ford dealerships soon. Also considering just pocketing the insurance cheque and getting some new winter tires and rims. The damage doesn't bother me very much, but I know it will be expensive for a new metal bumper, tailgate, and spray-liner (not to mention labor).

Here's some more pics of the damage:

It really doesn't look too bad, and if I were you, I'd keep the money and get new tires.

I forgot that you lived in Canada but holy cow on the price. It is a dent vs. being keyed or hail damage that is all over. Honestly, I would live with it. Also, I do not know how insurance is handled where you live, but with my insurance here and according to Ohio law, a driver is able to get up to 3 estimates and choose the shop of his/her choice. Last, the insurance company usually cuts the check to the policyholder and not the bodyshop. I would sit on the cash, and think long and hard before spending that money. Either way, it is your choice, and good luck.
