    I'm sure you have a BFH.. that will take care of the bedside though the plunger probably won't work. Or just give it a good push with your palm

    Yes I do, I'm going to try the plunger first then go the hammer route

    The door looks pushed but in the bedside will require a bit more than a plunger.. I think

    Yeah it's going to need more than just the plunger. I'm going to see if I can pull out as much of the dent as I can with the plunger first. I finally found a plunger...walmart and target do not have a normal style plunger for future reference. I found it at meijer.

    Plunger method didn't work, I tried dry ice Sunday night and that didn't work either. I ended up using a bottle jack and a piece of wood to pop out the dent in the bed. There's still a small dent that's not super noticeable but it looks much better. For the door I took off the plastic trim panel and the dent popped out very easy from inside the door just by me pushing on it a little with my hand. I'll post some pics of the results tomorrow.

    These came in today :D

    I was going to say, buy a Power Pusher.

    Same damn thing that you did with the bottle jack though, so.

    So I tried to replace the boots and had a little mishap where the bearings came apart on the inner part of the axle...Anyways the boots don't fit and I have a fucked axle so I'm going to put two Autozone axles in with a life time warranty. I should have just done this in the first place but w/e.

    Thanks man, I really like them. The ride is way better than stock and the adjustability is really nice. It's actually pretty easy to adjust.

    Yeah lol, I was hoping to cure the boot tearing problems all together and still have oem strength axles but w/e. If I destroy a cv axle or boot all I have to do now is get one from autozone, take out the broken one and put in the new one and I won't even have to pay a thing for the axles.

    Yeah I messed up a little bit..lol. I should have just replaced the whole axles in the 1st place and not messed around with it at all.

    I didn't think about jacking the truck up more but I definitely could with adjustable coilovers lol :spy:


    I really like it, it's nice to be able to monitor other things going on with the truck besides the stock gauges. The ultragauge has helped me improve my mpgs too imo
