    Nice truck indeed! yes... idiots who ding my doors *cringe* I usually park away from everyone - extra exercise and the idiots who like to kick their doors open are too lazy to walk the extra few steps!

    Looks nice!



    I just had my dings pulled. :cool:



    Only cost me $80 to pull two. Not too bad. You can't even tell. :D


    I'm parking in the back of the parking lot from now on. ;)

    I should look into the dent removal. I've heard they usually come out looking good.

    I totally agree. I've considered color sanding but it's brand new and I don't want to mess the paint up.

    This always happens to me too! Maybe they just want to get a better look at the best looking car in the lot!
