2004 Grand Cherokee Bumper Scratched

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75K Miles

I scratched the TEXTURED GRAY bumper on the drivers side (swiped a cement light post). Small scratches.

Any idea on what a replacement bumper may cost?

or

I know it can not be buffed, but can I get some type of compound or paint to touch up the scratches?

thanks

Yeah, a lot of people paint their cladding. Its cheaper than buying a new bumper and adds to the look. All you need to do is prep, clean, prime, paint, and dry basically. And the scratches will become less obvious.

We finally got another Jeep after 5 years without. Too bad it's ALL stock.
