Rear Stock Bumper Dent

Hey guys. I was at a college football game yesterday and returned to my vehicle after the game to find this dent in the back of my stock bumper. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this without having to replace it? Its a 2016 JKU with 5000 miles on it. As minor as it looks, being brand new its enough to aggravate someone..ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1477266762.651310.jpg

Re: Rear Stock Bumper Dent

You can take it off, heat it with heat gun or hair dryer, reshape it and hold it in place while still hot, then immediately cool it with cold water. It will hold it's set as you go from hot to cool. Post photos.
If it won't hold it's shape as you reform it, you can do a little bit at a time. Heat it, shape a bit, cool it to hold it's place. Then start another section. You may need something like a wooden dowel to push against the plastic.
