Default Rear bumper replace?

i have some dents and dings on my rear bumper, do i need to replace the bumper or just bumper cover, and whats the difference between the two? I'm confused. And i dont think i can fix the bumper cause there is too many dings and dents. thanks, Dave

Is you bumper chrome or painted ??

I just had my '09 painted bumper replaced a couple months back

I went to a auto body shop in Lakeside, the shop has been there for years
They gave me a very good price, beat the dealers price by at least $30

If your bumper is chromed, you may want to go to the BIG 3 Auto Swap Meet at the Stadium next month, look for the chrome shop, they do bumpers, i think their shop is in Chula Vista, i am not sure

The cover may just be the black plastic piece (or step pad) that is on top of the bumper. Maybe look for a work truck bumper at a local salvage yard and have it painted. Also check Craigslist.
