I was backing out of a parking space and failed to see a two foot wide concrete pole directly behind me. It might have been the combination of the state of the rear soft window and my mother interogating me from the passinger's seat. But I was only going about 2, and the spare tire was the only thing that touched the pole. Now my tailgate has a 1/2 inch bend with it's apex(?) right where the spare tire bumper is attached. The gate barely closes. I could live with it, but it's a constant reminder of how stupid I am. Anyone else fix one of these?
