Dented front bumper

Ok, I am an idiot. While rushing to the train station this a.m. I bumped the car parked next to me. The Acura has litterly no damage, me I have dented front corner bumper! I have searched and have heard of people fixing the bumper with a heat gun or blow dryer. I have one question, how do you do it? I am not very skilled with tools but it is bothering me to know I have an idiot mark on my jeep and it's all my fault. Anybody please help!!!! Thanks

I see an excuse to buy an after market one!

i got lucky my sister backed her car into the front bumper and crushed a whole corner, i was able to get a brand new Body Armor high clearance bumper out of it, on her dime. Great bumper ready to accept a winch and after market lights. might be something worth looking into! ($400) Good Luck Man!

You know a bumper isn't Jeep-worthy when it dents.......

......And the Japanese car you hit is fine.

Time to upgrade to any form of metal.

Whatever. You just donít get it. No need to turn this into a fight because of a comment to someone else. Relax.

That looks sweet!
I just wish I had the need for a winch. If I go off roading it would be on trails that are not that difficult. I have this image in my head of what I want to do to my jeep. 1) put AEV Savegre rims. 2) Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ Radial tires. 3) Get some new bumpers. I always liked the pre-runner look.

Since all this stuff costs $$$ I can just close my eyes and picture it in my head. LOL

OP, did you try to fix your bumper yet?
