Re: Let my mom use my car.. Never again

private auto body shops are generally cheaper than dealerships, atleast from my experience.

DIY, ask questions here, google, buy the part yourself and save lots of $. Might want to look at junk yards too.

Sorry to hear that...for sure you can buy the bumper and put it on yourself. That will save you a couple hundred if not more

Re: Let my mom use my car.. Never again

look on www.car-part.com and ebay for rear bumper. You may even find one that is already painted to match. $1000 is CRAZY!

Re: Let my mom use my car.. Never again

haha i have a similar story lol always good fun!

try going to a body shop or something or like a collision center to either fix it or order a new part, should be a lot more affordable that way!

good luck bro!

Re: Let my mom use my car.. Never again

I've seen some bumpers on Craigslist and ebay. Junk yards are tricky. I called one by me in MA and asked for parts to a '00 WJ and they said it was too new. Ten years old are you kidding me with too new?
