Rear bumper loading guard

Seems like a practical upgrade - this one is a softish rubber material. Not sure why this isn't std with pacificas (bean counters I suppose). Nobody wants to scratch up their paint loading things into the van...

When I was at the dealer I saw something similar on the durango SRT, but that was a brittle plastic.

This one comes with 3M double-sided tape for adhesion

I have this one from Amazon and I think it's the same one the OP has. It gets great ratings. I believe the same one is also sold on Car Id.

One reviewer says it did not fit a 2017, they either received the wrong one or the buyer did not place it correctly. It fits.

2018 Black S Limited EVERY OPTION available.

I have the same one, purchased directly from Sportwing. I just wonder why it is not an inch wider to cover the entire bumper. Dog nails will find that one bare inch, for sure!

I noticed Sportwing answered questions related to the Amazon item, so I assume they are the vendors there as well. When the liftgate is down, you won't notice the gap, but when it's up (which is when I need the protection, there is a gap. I tried to mark it on the Amazon stock photo attached. Sorry for my primitive method.

@Longtimemopar , as for the price, the dealer quoted me $200 for the very same part and installation!! I thought it was something special and asked them to see a picture of it and when I saw that it was the same item I had already seen online, I declined gracefully. I, too, can peel a sticker, I'll have you know!

OK, I see what you mean: the vertical area. I don't think we will find a bumper protector that will cover that part. What about a heavy towel temporarily placed over the opening to keep your dogs from scratching that area ?

Most of the scratches are in the area most rearward, not in the area of the gap.
I had one on my Outbacks, Sienna, and now the Pacifica.
Well worth the money.
A bottle of touch up paint is 20 dollars!
I agree, the van should come with one, but it doesn't.
