Rear bumper damage

Is it possible to "pop out" a dent in the rear bumper of my JK?

Jeeps don't have dents, they have "character marks"...

It depends on the depth and how close it is to a corner or seam mostly... yank the bumper off and go to town on it the worst you can do is probably better than what you got now...

Well i forgot a before pic but I took my bumper off drilled a whole by the passenger side where the back bumper has the fold in it and then pushed on that spot with a screw driver and heated with a lighter then took a file to give the texture again not perfect but better than a noticeable jack knife mark lol
