my best advice to protect your bumper...move out of NYC. Isn't that what a bumper is technically for? A good hitch or step would probably give you some room if a less talented driver got too close I suppose>

Just do a google search for " 2" hitch step ". There's lots of options.

More for protecting the car while it is parked. I guess the Hitch step is the best bet until they come up with something specific for the Bronco Sport

Thanks Steve, I did google it, and there are lots of options. It's Step is a good temporary option until they come out with something better

I have been to NYC a few times, I cannot believe how tight parking spots are...just looking at that picture gives me door ding chills. I have a luxury at work. I can park on an end spot outside, I park angled sideways with my driver's door against a small hill. Kids give me crap for 'learning how to park'. I tell them to memorize this...you will have an ah-ha moment and see how good I am at parking some day.

Yeah, I have sprung $600 on the paint-less dent repair package to cover the dings I will get over the next five years. The Dings on my last car drove me nuts.

Nice to see another NYC BS owner here, I'm in Brooklyn myself.

I was seeking protection for the bumpers when I first got mine. It's not the prettiest thing in the world, but the "Go Rhino 360T" bumper step covers a good portion of the rear and provides enough protection.. for now...

scott in your situation I'd say it's a hazard of the locale. In my area it's just people being incredibly rude. I park at the furthest extremes of any parking lot. We took a rental in vegas to a grocery store. Had a rav 4 parked right on top of us, double door dents clear and obvious. So I waited for them to come out and asked how ignorant they must be to park on top of a car and damage it. They acted like they had no clue what I was talking about until I pointed out the paint smears...just no respect.

Thanks! That is the one I will probably get until they come out with something better.

I am in Forest Hills, Queens

Unfortunately, I find that other people usually don't care about anyone else's car, especially if their car is pretty beat up. Doesn't matter where you live :(

I have always been very careful when I open my doors to make sure I don't ding any other car parked along the side of my car.
