I'll definitely pop it out for now. looks like it bent in pretty well and the grey plastic is now white where it creased. :/

Indeed. I'd feel like a low-life skipping out on someone.

It amazes me how flimsy the Wrangler bumper is. My neighbor backed her Camry into the rear bumper of my Liberty several years ago, crumpled her trunk lid and shoved her bumper in about a foot. All it did was crease the plastic on my Liberty.

Good memories.

Good excuse for a new bumper, though. Or the stubby mod ESP mentioned, if you can get hold of a sawzall.

rivershark2005 If you're in the Texarkana area (which I know you're probably not) I'd be happy as could be to give you a hand with both changing out the stock bolts and doing a stubby mod. I can get the sawzall to do the job no problem.

I usually post in the Texas forum area, but so far I have no hits on anyone wanted to help change out my stock bolts lol. Maybe I should post on this main board. Not many hits over there...thanks for the generosity though. And yes, I might get the smittybilt bumper. looks like it's only $399 and pretty sturdy.

looks great, but I don't have the power tools to cut it off, nor any tools for that matter besides doing bolt ons and small things like exacto knives lol.

Casotakar1229 Yea, I'll have to look up how to take apart the bumper to pop it out from behind.
03-13-2012 04:16 PM
Matador Sucks, but a heat gun and some massaging from the back should fix that up.

One week and two days...

...and my front bumper was hit and no note was left and no cars that I searched were at height level to do the damage. not pissed, just a reminder I need a new bumper that will take less impact and deal more damage when/if this ever occurs again. Ugh, the nerve of people.

About the size of a softball.
