    So I got by truck stuck in the mud.... During my attempts to brake free I backed into a tree.... I now have a 2" dent in my rear bumper on one side. Its actually not that bad, BUT, it'll drive me crazy...

    I have the chrome bumper. I would much prefer a black replacement or if more economical, an aftermarket one. However, I have the factory tow hitch, which I would like to keep.

    Any suggestions? Any market for a dented bumper?

    The scrapyard will :D

    This sounds like a good reason to go aftermarket.
