Need new rear bumber
 
Just put a pretty good dent in my rear bumper -- Insurance deductible is probably too high to cover replacement, so Im gonna have to take care of this on my own.

I was wondering if I went with an aftermarket -- Would it look out of place not doing the front as well? Is it a pretty easy R&R?

Anyone have any ideas or thoughts?

Thanks in advance..

Bumpers installs for the most part are pretty easy. Of course it depends entirely on which you choose however. Got and idea yet what your looking to get?

May as well do both if you can afford it. Would look better. Bumpers are very straight forward and relatively easy to do minus rust lol

-- I looked at aftermarket and thought I could get a much nicer bumper for the $$ --vs -- an OEM bumper -- But wow, I was wrong. (with the cost)

I like the looks of this Rampage Products 88605 - Rampage Products Rear Recovery Bumper for 07-13 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

I thought an OEM might cost similar to the aftermarket -- but not even close! I can get a new one for around $250, and maybe a craigslist used one for about $150 -- Either way, the Rampage (around $700 w/lights) is looking pretty sweet! I will wait n see... I will add this to my growing wish list for now, and decide later.
