    The cheapest route would be to keep your bumper chrome and use a body work hammer (like this one----->http://www.google.com/imgres?q=body+...0&tx=104&ty=86) or you could borrow one, and use that to hammer the dents out. It may not look perfect, but it's certainly better than having a big dent in your chrome bumper, or filling it with bondo which is just dumb....

    . I've tried that but the bumper is 3/16 inch thick and I heated it red hot and tried hammering it out but it didn't helP at all. I'm really good at filling and sanding dents with job weld.

    I would paint a black stripe across the bumper. Follow the black molding from one side to the other. Doing that would break up that big mirror on the back of your truck. Just a suggestion.

    PICS UP SOON
    JUST PAINTED IT Used a little JB weld to fill in the holes, but the dents are still noticeable -.-. so i will put some stickers over them so it looks clean. This is what i did

    1. Sanded it with 120 grid on a sander for maybe 20 minutes, so it would be a little rougher
    2. Hand sanded it with 320 Grit,
    3. Filled in the noticeable dents with some JB weld, i did good on all the small ones, but the bigs ones are still a tad noticeable
    4. Primed it with some Rustoleum Self Etching Primer. Let dry for 15 Minutes
    5. Once it dried, I wet sanded it with some more 320 Grit, BY HAND.
    6. Primed it again. Same way last time. Let it dry for 15 minutes
    7. Broke out the plasti dip and did one coat. Looks every good! no bubbles or drips or leaks.
    8. Waited a good 25 minutes and did a second coat of Plasti Dip. Still looks good!
    9. Might do a 3rd coat. Still debating.

    Its still drying ATM. Im going to wait a good 2 hrs before I mess with it anymore.

    The Buys:

    -1 can Spray Plasti Dip - 6$
    -1 can Self Etching Primer - 6$
    -JB Weld Quick/Kwik - 3$

    For 15$ I got a nice looking bumper! it was worth it! It had to be since my dad told me if it looked like sh*t when I was done, he was gonna kick my A*s. Hahaha, Thanks for viewing guys
