    Weigh it and ask UPS, Fedex, USPS how much shipping will be.

    UPS refused to ship a package because it was "too big"? wtf? That's their job. <_<

    Must have some lazy bastard workers.

    they can only ship so big a package. anything larger than a certain size they add on an extra fee. im not sure what the fee is but i am guessing its gonna be on up there

    you should be able to "curl" the front bumper cover in a box and ship it thru UPS. I did it once, came out fine, just use alot of styrofoam and bubble wrap.
