    HELP...

    I just drove the truck today to make sure everything was Aok for the gentlemen that will be comming to take a look at it tomorrow. Everything is fine driveline wise, but I went to get out of the truck and the door seem to stick a little more then useual. So I give it a shove and this is what happened. Anyone have any Ideas??? It looks like the fender slid backwards. I tried pounding it back towards the front but it doesn't seem to budge. Its weird b/c the door opened fine, and shut fine. I went to the gas station filled up came back home down a dirt road, that was in decent shape.

    are the body mounts good, mainly the driver front cab mount? could have dropped the body a little on the dirt road causeing the fender to that.

    the picture of the hood makes it look like you lost some of the bolts in the fender where it bolts to the cab. Not a whole lot you can do about the dents, but I would start checking all the mounting spots on the fender.

    The body mounts on the opposite side are cracked but still mostly intact, the ones on that side seem fine. I think the fender just slid back b/ the other door is perfect, so are the seams on the other side. I know I can't do anythign about the dents but I just want the damn door to open

    Can you get the hood open? If so might try to loosen all inner wheel well bolts and the bottom one then try to pull the core support forward... :crazy:

    Reminds me of when I bought a truck on eBay in Chicago, IL and went to pick it up four days later. The guy was driving it around when I had paid for it. I was like WTF... :doah:
