New House - Raised Curb - Damage!

Just moved to a new house & the driveway is a horrible angle. Anyway, today I've reversed over a high concrete slab & scratched the plastic under the car at the rear (think it's referred to as the rocker?)

Haven't got my own pic as it's too dark, but here's one a found online. It's the bit at the back that flares down.

Is it possible to replace this? You can't tell it's damaged unless you get underneath, but I know it's there!! No paint damage that I could see etc.

"Rockers" is just American for sills. The flared plastic bit is what I also call ... the flared plastic bit! No idea if you can replace easily but from your description you're possibly a bit OTT replacing it anyway! ... but good luck :)
