Ughhh .:facepalm:.

Well... I got my mirrors yesterday and took my doors off for the first time and when putting them back on my fiancé accidentally gave me the "jeep dimple". And before you say that it gives it character, is there anyone with personal experience that had anything that worked for them?

AWESOME. Im gonna have to get some of those. I feel your pain man, I was replacing my front speakers and had the door unhooked, went inside to grab something real quick, came out and the door was all the way back and left a small dimple from the mirror. I was devastated as the Jeep is only 3 weeks old with 800 miles on it :s......however the first mark had to happen at some point and there are no scratches so im sure later on I could just hammer it out and it'll be good as new!

I did it to both sides on mine! My father in law looked at my red JK and said where did you get those dents? I looked at his black JK and answered, the same place you got yours! He had my even noticed that he had done the same thing....

I read another post on here where a guy recommended taking a heat gun to the spot and then blasting it quickly with compressed air. I didn't try it on a mirror dimple exactly, but I had a very similar small dent further down the curved part of my hood.

I also don't have a heat gun but the lady has an abnormally hot hair dryer so I waited for a hot day, ran the engine for awhile to get things good and hot. Then I ran the hair dryer for a few minutes on and around that area and shot the compressed air right on the spot. It took several times of repeating this but it did work better than I expected! It's not 100% and you can still find the dent if you look for it, but it is a huge improvement!

The whole fender comes of with around 18 nuts. You can pull it off and push it out from the back.

The salesman who sold me my Jeep at the dealership warned me about the Jeep Dimple.. but I dont think he called it that. Since my driveway is on an incline, as long as I'm facing up, I should be good at not have to wrry about that.

This!
Sucks that the Jeep was damaged.
But it was an accident. If you want you can take it to a body shop.
But in the end. The Jeep is a machine, and your fiance is a living breathing person whom you intend to marry.

What does a whip have to do with the dimples? Everybody I've seen mounts the whip to the tailgate.

I mounted mine to the wife until she left with both the jeep and the whip.
