My "New to me" JK isnt so new anymore

About 3 weeks ago I purchased my 08 JK. Well last night I was visiting my grandmother and parked behind my late 20s cousin. Yeah bad idea. He backed his VW right into my Jeep. Pushed in my bumper bump on the passenger side. His poor VW didn't fair so well... Pushed in and cracked his rear bumper cover.

Sorry to see that happen. My sis backed into my wifes new CRV.
What a joke.
What did you end up getting?? I know stock bumpers are pretty easy to find.

Looks great. Your cousin should be more wary from now on...That bumper would do a lot more damage.

I have another one new in box for sale, just the winch bumper, no over rider or winch.. Even if you don't get mine, fitment was great and lined right up. Quality seamed good so far no chips in finish or anything.
