Default Help!!! Rear Bumper replacement distributors?

I got a new 2011 Ram SLT Hemi Well I backed up into a light post and put a basketball size dent into the bumper it didnt crack the chrome or anything. I am looking to replace the rear bumper or fix it. I took off the rear bumper and used a 2x4 and tried to pound it out but Im afraid its going to make it worse. Anyone know where to find a bumper besides the dealer? Any factory direct distributors out there to order from? Ive tried many different auto parts places and they dont carry 2011 Ram Parts yet. Are the 2010 and 2011 bumpers the same?

I appreciate any help I can get Man do I feel stupid.

Default Thank you

Thanks a ton I appreciate your responses. I will check that out now. So 2009 to 2011 are all the same then. That helps big time.

Yeah, you can start with a 2009 with no problem. Not sure how many distributors may have them but I bet they are out there.

Good luck!

You can't fix a chrome bumper. I'd call Keystone and see if they can get the part for you. They remanufacture bumpers and also can supply good quality USA Chromed aftermarkets. IMO you are better off with one of theirs than a OEM bumper. The Keystone Platinum Plus parts are lifetime warranty. The dodge ones just rust and sooner or later you are on your own. They may even take yours and fix / chrome it if they dont have one in stock.

Default Update!

So I called the Stealer this morning 490$ for a new bumper. But wait I had a guy in last week that switched to duel exhaust. Let me go look at his take off bumper. Sure enough not a scratch dent on it. 260 dollars out the door. Thanks for all the replies.
