So I bent the bumper mount

Post by KevinABQ » Sat Oct 17, 2020 10:49 pm

I misjudged a step on metal masher and dented the bumper, and it shifted the right side of the bumper back and up a bit.

I thought it had just shifted and I planned to loosen the mount and shift it back into place. But with the grille off and all the bolts loosened it wouldn't move and looking down the right side looked a bit different than the left.

So looking more carefully from underneath, there is a major bend in the right bumper mount. So looks like time for a new mount. This looks like something of a pain to replace in my driveway (there are about 3 layers of brackets and shrouds to remove first) , but it looks doable. Anyone ever do this? Anyone know heavy the bumper is?

I mean I've removed it all when I went to Thuren bumper in a driveway. We used a ratchet strap at one point to wiggle the winch and cradle but the bumper is pretty light itself.

Doable, but definitely a pain in the ass. I’ve used ratchet straps and a floor jack to pull bumper brackets before
