Did the ice do that damage?


I hate it when I'm driving over a puddle and the ice gives out. Sometimes it's a real PITA to get out!

I'm eyeing the ace mid width. Yeah I'm going to assume it was the ice. It's nit my favorite either.

Just whack it off and get a stubby kit, it'll still look good!

Yeah I really am on the fence about the rough country stubby caps. I read they are steel. That seems appealing to me.

And that looks sweet. Love that look. I already ordered the rc caps but tomorrow I am going to try to pop the dent out. Just for poops ad giggles. My plan is to heat it up with a heat gun (it's 15 degrees here now), drill a small hole, and pump it up with compressed air. I guess we will see what happens.

I hit a dog the 3rd day after I bought mine. I was going to try compressed air but there were several holes on the back side already. I used a long screwdriver and got all of the dent pushed out from the rear. Can't tell it anymore.

"Uh oh, time for a new bumper!"

I don't think your wife (if married) will buy your attempt to replace this massively damaged, unsafe bumper.. Just sayin'

Brian d was this outing at the Mounds off road park? Just asking because I am from S-E MI also. Heat gun works good on this rash, just try to repair in a garage not outside in this coldsnap we are going through.

I ended up ordering the rc end caps for now. I pushed most of it out with a heat gun and screwdriver. Yessir this was at the mounds. Not my favorite place but I had the itch to do some(legal) wheeling and its the closest area to me. Besides, got to go to Frankenmuth after.
