Replace bumper, beat it into shape if you can. If not, new bumpers cost like $250, i got mine off a wrecked '05 for $125. That corner....see what you can do with beating behind it and getting it somehwat straight.

I've slid into a tree with my truck while off-roading and got a little body damage to the side of the bed and none to my bumper, but my bumper isn't stock.

Dromlace I'd suggest you keep to the topic at hand, no member bashing.

And to the people that replied, stop feeding the fire.

I'm not going to into detail, but my friend ended up fishtailing and hit my truck nearly the same spot you have a dent. Didn't damage my bumper, but it dented in the rear side-panel.

$1,600 later I had the entire side-panel replaced.

i did the same thing, damn tree jumped out of no where, although it was in a different spot with no body damage, i just replaced the bumper and viola no more damage. that doesnt look that bad, new stock bumper could hide it well enough for me. but that is me.

Too bad your not from around my parts. We have a heated shop, half a quart of oxford white paint and clearcoat here along with a dent puller that welds tabs on to bang that thing out. Would cost ya a large pizza, some Mountian Dew and getting your ***** busted by a bunch of yankees :)
