    Last time I went out I got me a nice 4 foot sewer pipe shoved into my rocker panel!! Not too serious...the passenger door still closes and theres just a bit of a bulge there. Now I done good!! Does that mean I am wheeling harder or the rig is finally rusting out!!

    Went out yesterday and shoved it into a mud pit and I guess I hit just a bit hard. The left side rear panel is way off from alignment. The rear gate refuses to close as the left body panel sits away from where it is supposed to be by a few inches /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif and I have a crease down the center of my body!! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I figure you all have done something like this and would appreciate some suggestions on how to repair this. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    My truck has a bad case of steel returning to its original state of FE in the form of rust. It has hella body alignment problems, the rear doors dont shut, the rear is shifted over a few inches, the body sags, some doors are really hard to open and close, when im flexing I cant open the passenger doors.

    Good idea, but no, but similar!! Leave the bumper where it is at. Leave the body where it is at. Imagine in the middle of your tailgate, bumper there is a crease. Imagine that the tailgate is way off alignment. I'm gonna go swipe my Dad's camera.....
