    Do you have a picture that shows how it is damaged? Are you going to replace the bumper or try and fix it?

    I would say if you are going to try and do the work yourself your going to need some racket pullers and a big tree. It probably won't look the best but I know that's how a lot DIY get stuff bent back into place lol

    is the bumper its self bent, or is it just at a funny angle? when i got rear-ended, i took my bumper off and straitend the brackets with a torch and cresent wrench. afterwards it was straighter than when i bought it
