Those bumpers are so flimsy it's probably best to just replace it. You can get them here: http://www.lmctruck.com/icatalog/ce/full.aspx?Page=74

You can try this method. Worked for me.
Dont over pull ! Might end up with your bumper laying on the ground.

It didnt take much. Light pull with controlled braking.

You may also need a bumper bracket if it is bent as well.

Agree, Jordan. My bracket was, and still is alittle. Man those things are cheezy weak. I rubber malleted mine into shape enough when I replaced the chrome end cap.
I know I sure keep my eyes open alot more backing up now. :shock:
