My bumper is slightly damaged. It doesnt really bother me that much, but I bought a skirt/lip/valence and my repair guy didnt want to put it on since the bumper is bent. I went to a body shop and they said its easier and possibly cheaper to replace. What do you guys think?

There's one of those at most every junkyard in the US. Just replace it with a used one. It'll probably be $20 and an hour of your time.

Used Dodge bumpers like that should be easy to find but be sure to get the brackets cuz it looks like yours could be a little bent.

And while you are at the junkyard, get anything else you might need off the lucky donor.
