2010 Mountain Edition Wrangler-Rear Bumper replacement

I have a 2010 Jeep Wrangler Mountain Edition-2 door. I was recently involved in a hit and run where my rear bumper was dented on the right corner. I think I have to replace the entire bumper and was wondering if these bumpers below would be the correct fit for my Jeep.

Classifieds for Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming | ksl.com bumper&ad_cid=8

Does the 2010 Mountain Edition fall into the 07-14 JK category? Is it hard to replace the rear bumper by myself?

Thanks for the help!

The black plastic Jeep bumpers are nothing more than a hollow plastic shell, that in the rear, covers the end of the frame. It is just a few bolts and can easily be accomplished with simple hand tools.

The rear bumper is the same from 07-04. The only difference with the Mountain edition is the painted center piece which darker then the one found on the Sahara model.

The bumper is not hard to remove if you're good with basic hand tools. This video shows how to remove it.

as has been said the bumper is simple to remove. once you remove it, take the applique off (the gray center piece of plastic) off. i believe they're held on by 4 t-15 (torx) screws. you can screw them into your new bumper or remove the applique completely.

Thanks

Thanks guys I appreciate the info and help.

The applique, which is the dark grey center piece of plastic in the bumper, like you said, I can remove that from the old bumper and reattach it the new bumper? It does look like the Mountain edition rear bumper has three distinctive parts to it (two corners pieces an then the center applique piece you described). I was not sure if all three of these pieces are molded together to create one bumper. The damage is only on the right side corner piece.

Thanks

it's one piece, the applique is only three sided, and just screws to the top of it. i still have mine in the garage. i'll snap a photo of it tonight.
