Rear Bumper scragged.

Spent this weekend at lake Havasu and as I went to hook up the pop-up camper misjudgment happened and the coupler left a mark on my bumper. The previous owners installed a roll pan. But I'm thinking about just getting an OEM bumper (unless another roll pan is cheaper) and I will probably have a local body shop install it. Does any have a rough estimate of how much these repairs will be out of pocket?

the rear bumper isnt that bad, like egnaro said. I swapped to my aftermarket Tactical Armour Group bumper. and it was litteraly 4 bolts to pull out. and those bumpers arent that heavy, just have a buddy or two to hold it up while you are putting in the bolts, or a jack. Either way, you are probably better off buying a used bumper off of a parts truck on here or of craigslist and swapping it yourself. would save you alot of money.

I am in trade school, I have an apartment, a bed, a laptop, and an Excursion. the pop-up camper was rented. The only tools Collegiate Housing lets me keep at the place is a screw driver and pliers. The only work they let me do is homework. If I could do the repairs my self would to save the couple hundred. And God help you if you disobey them. So my only option is the body shop. I wish I could post pics but all I own is listed above, no camera. And let me tell ya I am sick of Ramen and PBJ.
