    Hey guys i have a huge question my jeep wrangler 2015 willys wheeler is brand new to me. It hasn't even been a week when someone illegally parked at work...it was dark and I didn't see them behind my big monster.

    The right plastic part of my bumper is damaged. Do I need a whole new bumper or can I replace just the plastic piece?

    Needless to say my Jeep totally crushed the Jetta. I've been searching all night but can't find anything. Please help me please!!!

    OEM Bumpers are easy to find, and many folks either have them for sale for a few bucks, or free. Where are you located?

    I see you went with the Willys after all. Good for you! Hope you are liking it. As for your question: It is a one piece bumper. Chris is correct...look for a shop that does Jeep mods...they pull brand new OEM bumpers off by the dozens. Another option is to look up a local Jeep or off-road club in your are on FB. The shops will usually charge for the bumpers they have but you may be able to find a jeeper with one sitting in the corner of his garage. I even see them go for free pretty often. HOWEVER...I am not sure if the Willys package has the same standard rear bumper...make sure.

    Take care & wheel safe!!

    The bumper in the picture looks to be an OEM standard bumper. Easy peasy to replace :)

    Do basically the whole bumper needs to be replaced the plastic does not attach from the metal at all?

    The bumper is a single piece. Here is a video on removing one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDOhALWnZvo

    Yours "MAY" (not sure but I suspect) have a painted piece in the center section. You may need to remove and transfer to the new bumper to keep the look the same.
