    So I have my DCSB 4x4 TRD for 2 weeks and park out in the boonies so no one dings me, but some basdid manages to ding my rear driver side door. :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:
    Not big, but is driving me nutz. Can this be pulled out so close to the edge of the door?

    Find a body shop that does paintless dent removal. They should be able to get that out.

    That really sucks!! I'd probably cry...

    Be prepared for a bunch of "it's a truck, quit whining" guys to come on here and start telling you how it's a truck and don't buy one unless you wheel it and use it like a truck...

    But I feel your pain!! I'm in upstate NY and I'm just praying I don't have any of those when summer comes and I can finally clean and wax it!

    thanks for the replies, as dumb as it sounds I want to get it fixed. I expect the "its a truck" replies, but I was still in the honeymoon phase, have not made my first payment:mad:.

    I think I will get it fixed, then put on some sliders so the a holes will hit them first.

    Nope!! I Would be just as mad! Nothing wrong with wanting to keep your $30k truck looking like new! Especially before the first payment! Eek...

    Update with the dent removed!

    Well I had Hayes from atlantadings.com come by today and fix the ding. Completely impressed since this ding was in a weird spot and I thought it could not be fixed. He was on time and went to work right away. Could not be more pleased. I was really bumming before, but now the truck is back to new. Recommended for anyone near Atl.

    On a side note, some other places I check were more expensive and had some kids working there .... not that there is anything wrong with that but I feel more comfortable with someone with years of experience to work on the truck. Here is an after pic...the only reflections are from my garage. 15 minutes of work:

    Hey it is a truck and it is going to get banged up but i would personally rather ding it up myself rather then some dick head throwing there door open into the side of it.

    Nice, I am glad for you that he was able to fix it. That is a difficult location being so close to the edge. When it is in the crimped edge of the panel it is usually almost impossible to get in there. I had my truck done about a year ago when the truck turned 10 years old (birthday gift to my truck) and had about ten small dings fixed perfectly; only one on the edge could not be fixed.

    I really don't mind the ding or dents if I did it myself. . .

    I get pissed when its someone elses carelessness. . . .

    so I understand your pain.
