    Big snow fell on New Year's Day out here in Seattle and I ran into a parked semi and the right side of the bumper on my Toyota Tacoma SR5 4x4 is now jammed against the right front tire. Any thoughts on how to fix this? Crowbar, hammer, rubber mallet? The right turn signal also came undone but still works and fits in its housing.

    The valance is bent outward a bit.

    Find a good solid object a big tree or pole, hook up a chain or a winch of some sort and slowly pull it back, if using a chain and tree have somebody watching so you don't bend the bumper back too far or worse rip it off.

    Was a heck of a snow storm for sure. Instead of backing up, you could also use a Hi-Lift jack or a Come Along.
