CollinR is on a distinguished road
Default 95 3/4 ton front bumper

Well, a while ago a good buddy of mine called me and said he was stuck in a snowdrift. I got up immedietly and rushed to help him. He drives a 2002 1500 (2WD). So, he had no bussiness being on a backroad that never gets plowed with tires balder than a skinned cat. Anyway, in the process of pulling him out, i wrapped my strap around my front tow hooks and gave it a good tug. Before this event, i had the usual looking Ram bumber. I've seen em runnin around with it looking like the front is angled up and the sides are pointed down. Well, after the 3rd tug in 4high, i heard a nice snap. Now my bumper is seperated a bit on the passenger side where the plastic and metal meet and the bumper is level. Right under my grill theres about an inch gap. is there a way i can fix my bumper without replacing it??? (Btw, got the truck unstuck, after ripping off his back bumper). Please Help!

Okay, this may be weird, but how about gently pressing against a brick wall to push the bumper back in. Did that on my '86 van to straighten out a tweaked rear bumper...
