My older 2000 Grand Cherokee has a much tougher (and certainly heavier) plastic bumper. Looks like an ECB bull bar the only practical solution for the 2011 model (reportedly it cannot be fitted to the 2012). Note: no kangaroos died during the making of this post - but they must surely have headaches. Unfortunately, that means they're still out there - only stupider .
Dan, is yours a white GC?. i think i saw it going to Mugga Lane tip recently. My wife got excited when she saw it (we are getting white as well).As we passed it she almost cried when she saw the damage. Hope things get sorted asap for you. Ours is due on American Independence Day (ordered second week of jan).

Re: "Glass Jaw" front bumper

Mine is silver and the damage is hard to see, plus I've not yet taken it slumming (to the tip), haha. Pride in Phillip has ordered the ECB bullbar for me. There is an ECB bar for the 2012 (screw in tow hook) version now, too. I'm happy to show it off after installation, early June.
