That^

The first time, it happened on a very hot day and that evening, it popped back on its own. The second time, well, not so lucky. I'm sure worse things are ahead on the trail or in parking lots.

TXJK2009 Btw, I only have one dimple. My son was helping me and he let go.

It wasn't my fault!

Potts So does this just happen when trying to take the doors off? My JK is a week old and I'd like to avoid this happening when I try to take my doors off in a couple days. Could you just leave the strap in place until you get the door off the hinges so this doesn't happen? once you take the doors off the strap goes back in place right, to stop this from happening?

jeepers29 Let it , sit in the sun for several hours until the dented area is bloody hot. Next drop an ice cube on dented area. I have seen this work on hail damage here in central Texas. Give it a go, the most it will cost you is an ice cube.

rev2red Dry ice can work in place of the air compressor. The heat gun/blow dryer is still needed.
06-30-2012 12:16 AM
SJS I did the heat and air today on it and it made it better but not fixed

11JKUS I did it to mine and about had a heartattack, just went ahead and ordered the cowl armor and now i can not worry about my door getting away from me it just bounces back. Had a couple of guys in the Jeep club Im in here in Louisiana tell me the hairdryer(heat gun) and compressed air thing does work on small areas. I need to try it on my passenger side doors both have creases where the rear got away from someone.

NO! NO NO NO NO!.

Guess what I thought when I got my dent? "How hard could it be to fix it?".

I made it way worse. Don't even try.

Briarsdad The same thing happened to a friend of mine last weekend. they have had their Jeep for abut two weeks and the dealer where they bought it is gonna fix it for them. Maybe you should contact your dealer and see if they would do the same for you.It wouldn't hurt to ask the only thing they can say is no.

Stop by the local body shop or dealer. They should know of a company. I see those guys at the lots taking door dings out of brand new vehicles quite often.

GonzoBobH Pulled in to get some pool supplies and saw this awesome looking gun metal blue JKU. As I got out I noticed that even though he had his doors on he had tried to take them off once -- because he had the little dent, haha.

Still, nice looking jeep.

O_M_Jeep ok, the trick with the heat gun and air can is very very cool (pun intended), that is an awesome handy little bit of know how.
06-24-2012 04:21 PM
kabory It depends on size and location of dent, its cheap and worth a try. You have to get the metal to expand and contract for it to work, Move a hair dryer over the area for about a minute, then immediately blast with compressed air.
