    If you want the long story i posted it in another thread on sunday, but I crinkled my tailgate. The dent itself is subtle but when you get up close you can see the metal is cracked and creased a little. I have two questions:

    1. Say My tailgate ended up getting bent, would this void the factory warranty (And TSB) ?

    2. If so, what is the best way to try and fix it?

    Ya there are a lot of screws on these things. I might try it but I don't want to fuck it up worse than it is already.
