    Just noticed this, no idea when it happened. Damn! I would like to push these people down a ten foot razor blade unto a pool of lemon juice.

    Get some beefy nerf bars or steps, that should protect you through about 95% of future door dings.

    How long did it take for that to happen? That stuff drives me nuts too.

    Try some good polish. It's amazing what it can do. It won't take a depression out though.

    I knew a Marine drill sargent that had an interesting rant about depressions of a certain type...

    Ouch! Sorry to see that. We've had really good luck with paintless dent repair guys. As long as he can get access and it's not on a crease you'd probably not even be able to tell there was ever a ding there. Unless it needs paint. $100 bucks or so. Most dealerships can recommend somebody. Good luck.

    About 6 months of parking as far as possible from everyone. What sucks is my last ride I never gave a thought to where I park, and never got one scratch over 8 years.

    Most dealers have paint less dent removal too for decent prices as least at longo Toyota in Elmonte California.
    Might??? There is no question, you need them or it will not be the last. 200 or 300 bucks is a small invset mentioned to protect your doors. I bought these

    I like those, I was actually checking them out in the access cab version a few weeks ago,... damn I should have pulled the trigger on them then.

    I am a little worried about my dog stepping on them and putting her foot through the area that doesn't have the covered step. That looks like a vet bill waiting to happen. Am I being paranoid worrying about the dog?

    Here are some pics
    Side, underneath and from a far.
    You can always have the star plates cut out and replaced with what ever plate you want. They are sturdy as hell and bolt on but not to the frame. They have been tested as real sliders and work fine as long as you don't come down on them hard like trying to drive off a 3 foot wall. I love them. Or you put a couple of American flag decals on to tie in with a star theme.

    No you are not. I liked those too but thought of the same thing, hence why I went with the 5" Lunds. They also stick out far enough that dings should be avoided.

    I got 3 door dings on my passenger side within the first couple of months. My sliders should be here soon, and as soon as they're on I'll go get painless dent repair and then not have to worry about it anymore!

    Got my first door ding last week, right in the crease! Had a PDR guy come out and work on it and got "95%" of it out. He wants to take the door panel off in a couple weeks to get the rest of it.

    OP, I think a decent PDR guy would have no problem getting yours out.
