    I backed into a short wooden pole at a local park the other day and it put a good sized dent in the driver's side rear bumper - right in the corner. I also pushed that side of the bumper forward about 3/4". It's not a BIG deal, but it's really bothering me and I'd like to get it fixed. A local body shop told me that they can't pop out the dent because the bumper metal is too thick so I'd have to get a new one. He wanted $750 to do the job. No thanks!

    I could put the bumber on myself if I could get a pre-panted replacement. I suppose I could also order a primed bumper and have a shop paint it. Any suggestions on th cheapest way to replace a red rear bumper?

    Either go aftermarket offroad bumper, find a junkyard, ebay, or try to source one for a good price on the internet and have it painted.

    Depending on your intentions with your truck, I'd go for the offroad bumper... :devil:

    You could probably do much better than 750 bucks by finding a good deal.

    An aftermarket off-road bumper doesn't make sense for my 2x4 daily driver - but they do look cool. Ebay was a bust as well. I tried car-part.com... we'll see if they can find anything. Thanks for the suggestions.
