Replacement Rear Bumper

Looking at replacement rear bumpers for my 2014 v6, I come across this (see thumbnail).

So let me get this straight Ford. Your list price for a bumper with sensor holes cut in it is listed at $280, and your list price for the same bumper with no holes cut in it is listed at $595. So, at list price, I would be paying a $315 premium for you to NOT cut holes into a bumper? Even on a site that sells discounted OEM parts like tascaparts.com the difference in pricing between the two bumpers is still almost $300 if including the core charge. I'm baffled as to the logic (or lack thereof) behind pricing decisions like this. Please, someone, rationalize this to me. Please...

I did see AM has the sensors on sale for $200 or so......that would be a win/win.

core charge on a plastic bumper cover?

If I do end up replacing the bumper, I'm going that route: cheaper bumper with holes and sensors from AM to fill them in.

And yes, a core charge on a freaking plastic bumper cover. Can you believe it?

Is a takeoff bumper cover an option? May still need some paint work if it has scratches/scuffs (or is not in your color).

Yeah it's an option, but takeoff rear bumpers are a lot harder to come by than front bumpers. Plus if they're damaged too much it defeats the purpose of replacing it.
