Anybody tried one of these on their 17? We have a dog ramp we put up on the bumper for one of the pooches to climb up and I'd like to avoid scratching the bumper if possible. The oem guard looks decorative and I'd also like something a bit grippier than a smooth metallic finish if possible. If anyone has put the rubber bumper protector tape on which one did you use and how is it holding up?

Bumper sill tape will help but you’ll just end up scratching that.
Its tough with dogs on entry, if they scratch the paint you’d want the tape, if they scratch the tape youmll replace and risk damaging the tape on removal and reapplication.

How about something like this https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/202047410318
It's not grippy but it's better protection than tape.

Or, you could get a freestanding ramp that doesn't rest on the bumper at all. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00CGYE0LI

Thanks all. We've had this ramp for years and it's been great. It's not freestanding but it works well for a 75lb pooch with bad hips. The bottom of the ramp just rests on the bumper sill until the hatch is open then we move it further inside. Maybe putting something on the part of the ramp that rests on the bumper is an option but it's a weird shape.
