You talking about the grey plastic thing? What you can do is take some sheet metal screws and screw it up.:thumb1:

I would say less than $500 because most all the aftermarket bumpers are $1000 +/- 100 bucks:banghead:

As far as bumper another to Try is JL Welding he's got a shop and he's a member here... As far as fixing with bolt there is a write up here of someone using carrage bolts and black paint to fix his bumper up...

I completely disagree but my mom always said:
