I was backing up today and had hit someone else car. I did not do much damage to the other person car but the rear bumper on my 2016 Dodge Ram Rebel it looks like bumper was pushed in a bit. I was wondering recommendations how to get it fixed and would anyone know around the cost? I have enclosed pictures. The last picture is where you can see the bumper is up against the body. I took pictures of the right side as well and that shows what it suppose to look like.

Sounds kind of "red-neck" but I have a buddy that did this in his Ford. Instead of buying a new bumper he just tied a tow strap around the bumper and attached it to my old truck and gently rolled forward until the strap was tight. Than in 4-low he just kept slowly walking the truck forward until it got pulled out. Looked great and you couldn't even tell anything happen after he dd the "red-neck" fix.

If it's got hooks, run the strap around the bumper and hook it to itself, and the other end to the other vehicle. If it's loops only, run it around the bumper and feed it through its own loop. In both cases, it becomes a sort of slip knot.

I think that's one of the more common ways to go about it, probably the best way, seems to be what will hold up the most.

How would you tie the tow strap around the Rebel bumper?
Easily. You just wrap a tow strap over the top between the bumper and the tailgate and have it come out of the bottom underneath the bumper so it pulls the bumper away from the body and bends it back to shape.
