Front Bumper

I bought my truck with a dent in the front bumper. I want to fix it, but is it possible to get the dent out without completely ruining the chrome or do i need a new bumper?

You may be able to beat that back out but I don't believe the chrome would look good afterwards. Also it looks like that side is bent up or the truck is leaning that way.

That'll give you an idea of how much a brand new one would run.

chrome doesnt take flexing very well, it will crack and look nasty if you pound it out.
