Jeep Vs well head

So there i was sitting in my friends hottub and i decide that the mud filled ditch behind their house is too much to resist. I christened the girl in the mud. Everything was going great until i came up over the hill and didnt notice the well head sticking out of the ground. Tore the cap off the well head, wedged the jeeps front crossmember up on the top of the well pipe, and tore off my useless plastic skid plate. i also managed to wack the crossmember pretty good. But thats what its there for.

Heres my question. I have deformed the plastic of the bumper on the side next to the fog lights. Is that a single piece, or do i have to buy the entire bumper?.

i know, i know, i should just buy aftermarket, but its not in the budget this month.


dang it looks good muddy

Check this forum under parts for sale or try cr@!gsl!st and eb@y I have seen front factory bumpers go for around $50-$100. There was one in houston the other day that a guy was selling for $25 but has sold it already.

Here are a couple for sale one JeepForum

You should be able to pick up a bumper here pretty cheap. Or check JK forums. I have an extra plastic skid plate if you want it. Its free, you just pay for shipping. Can't help with the bumper. You also might try taking the bumper skin off and pushing the dent out from behind.

No pics unfortulately, the captain morgan prevented me from thinking to grab the camera. The repair bill on the well was $320, so it could have been MUCH worse, On the jeep or the well.

how iffy is the dealer when its obvious that the rocker guards and protection mechanisms on the jeep have obviously been used? I know thats what they are there for. i almost want to have it checked out.. but i dont want them to get crazy on voiding warranty. My TJ was out of warranty when i got it, so i havent had to deal with the dealer on somthing like this before.
