Rooster454 I know that feeling. Some idiot hit my 4runner a couple months ago and knocked my bumper offline. They hopefully got the worst of it as my trailer hitch and ball had a good amount of fluid on it and there was a little puddle on the ground behind my car. I tried to follow the trail of fluid, but lost it after about 100'

If you can't get your bumper back the way you want it to and want to get a new stock bumper let me know, I'll sell you mine for cheap. I have a brand new '12 jkur and am supposed to receive my new bumper tomorrow and am going to sell the stock one and the beam if you need it. Shoot me a PM if you're interested and we'll work it out.

X2 and take a mallet or dowel and gently persuade the plastic to reform.

jkjeeper06 If you drill a hole in the back and use a Wooden dowel, you can heat up the plastic with a heat gun and it'll come out perfect with no creases

However, if that doesn't work, what's involved in changing out the plastic cover? I have fogs and tow hooks.

Oh well, I guess it's the "best" kind of parking lot damage you can get (better than damage to the sheetmetal).
