    I had my 09 TRD out this weekend wheelin and testing out my new Duratracs. At the end of the day I dented/scratched the bottom of my drivers door and the bottom rocker (i think thats what its called) panel. I was going down a steep very tight trail leading to a creak that was to narrow for the taco.

    Any recommendations on how to pick a good body shop? Most the denting/scratching is in the thick "rockguard' paint used on the bottom of the truck, so I want it to match when they are done.

    I guess I need to buy some sliders this coming week...

    If anyone has a body shop recommendation for the Cincinnati area that would be great.

    Duratracs were awesome. I was in mud to the top of the fenders and going down a boulder filled creek and they never failed. Was going places lifted jeeps with M/Ts couldn't make. Too bad I scratched/dented the new truck :(

    Went outside and snapped a couple of night shots of the scratch/dents..

    Ah that will buff out no problem :thumbsup:

    Sorry about the damage man.

    Maybe try looking into who your insurance company goes threw for body repair and take it to them. Just don't call your insurance if you don't want to report it. Usually insurance companies have standards that shops must meet in order to be eligible for their you to use.

    I think I am going to get a couple of quotes and see what the cost is. If its weirdly expensive I might turn it in. If its not much I'll just pay for it and make sure I have some sliders on before I go out next time.

    i'd say leave it..get some clear coat to spray on to prevent rust. the damage is on the bottom and will be hardly noticeable.


    when my taco was 2 weeks old i did a trail with no sliders, did the same thing you did but mine was 100x worse. the rear passenger had to be forced open, the front driver door wouldnt close properly. i used a piece of a 2x4 to pound everything down so the doors would open as they should.

    you can see some of the damage behind the slider in this pic, wish i had em sooner!!!
    [​IMG]

    sliders will be the best mod you can ever do if you do any kind of off roading..skid plate will be the second best thing you can do!

    and if you decide on slider..consider something that incorporates a kick-out into the design such as what All Pro has..the kick-outs will help push the truck out and a way from rocks and trees. i got rid of my old sliders this week just to get a pair of the All Pros...those kick-outs saved my ass many times this weekend.

    if i had the All Pro's with the kick-outs this damage wouldn't have happened to my truck..should've done it right in the first place haha..this one happened when my truck was 4 months old

    Last night I slid my truck over a place I was trying to cross on a trail. While it did not do any damage to the side of the truck, just bent that seam under the rocker- It did not sound good! I think its time we come up off some cash for sliders.
