Unhappy New Rear Bumper / Painful Pics / How Much?

Evening All: Well I smoked my rear bumper tonight out here in the bush. Going to camp on these ice roads, tight turns, single track. A water truck coming my direction wasn't using his "rig road radio" and we met on a steep winding hill, me going uphill, on this section of the trail. I hit my brakes, barked at him on the radio and tried to go forward..... too slippery so I gently backed down the winding grade. Started to slide and ended up backwards in the bank being stopped by a damn swamp spruce. Caved in the bumper just to the left of my right tailpipe valance. Small dent in top part of tailgate and a small wrinkle at the base. Tailgate won't open DARN IT!!!!! Just replaced this bumper on warranty rust issues 2 months ago. Anybody know price of new one?. I'm near Grande Prairie but home would be Calgary.

Oh man that does suck, just glad that's all it was and you're ok! Good luck finding your bumper!

Ouch, that kinda sucks ! Not sure how much but perhaps a wreaker would have an intact rear bumper, worth checking out.

Looks like "we have a winner"!. Called my dealer principal down south in my hometown and after teasing me about my 40+ years of "bushroad" driving prowess AND insisting it was time to swap my "olde" Fargo for a beautiful, shiny, "just right for me", {Ha Ha} new, 2012 Black Ram...... he lined up a new one for $400 and I take him to lunch when I get home while his lads at the dealership exchange the bumper. Hmmmmmm that new black one sounds tempting....... NAW! I'll hang on to the olde one for another season. Maybe a Powerwagon?. NAW.... Lol Thanks for the empathy guys. The bumper can be fixed quicker than my Ego and Reputation will Lol. Regards Rockdoc
