Good one. Maybe take her out off-roading, let her drive and convince her she broke something else.

I did the same thing. I drilled a small 1/8 dia hole in the center of the crease. Used a metal pick bent 90 degrees, somewhat like a dental pick that I got from an auto parts store. Stick it in the hole and pull gently while heating the area with a hair dryer. Fill the tiny hole with black rtv. Not perfect but better than the crease.

To the OP, if you don't have a sister with too much money get a hacksaw and stub that thing out

If it is the front bumper just drill a small hole and use compressed Air; it blow it right out (then plug it up if you want). For the rear plug up the drain holes except one and use the compressed air (use screws to plug it up). I got this out of magazine...tell me if it works well...

Same problem with dented bumper

I had the same problem, a dent on the drivers side stock front bumper on my 2014 Rubicon Unlimited. Used a standard blow dryer to warm up the section slowly until the plastic was soft and pliable. While continuing to apply heat, worked out the dent with my free hand. No holes, no drilling, no tools (other then a blow dryer and extension cord). Took less than 10 minutes start to finish. You can still see traces of the dent, but only because I know it's there. If you didn't know to look for it you probably wouldn't notice.
