    seems arizona just does not like full sizes on jeep trails:rolleyes:




    anyways...

    now I have to decide weather to just fix it and bondo it to hell..less time involved and if it happens again..no big thing

    or..replace the whole panel...4 or 5 hours, plus primer and paint and bed liner

    or...custom tail lights or do the tacoma tail lights again like I did on the 75, this involves both sides and at least 20 hours

    or...fiberglass, this means more money, time but will do better with damage in the future

    Do the fix right this time or you will just end up trashing it like you did the last few. Personally I say fix it back to stock probably replacing the whole panel. Then reprime and repaint it.

    trailer lights. I'm sure you could do a better job than I did, but here is my old '73 so you can see what I mean.

    Keith did his after he saw mine and used LEDs. They looked really good. I also put on some small round marker lights.

    option 5: hammer it out with a ball pein, spraycan it to match, keep going.

    i'm continually amazed that you put time and money into bodywork considering your previous trackrecord.

    option 6: post pics of those chicks you always take wheeling.

    Why even try anymore, you already know what the outcome will be, as do the rest of us.

    :haha: dude way to go on the body damage!!:waytogo: :bow: :bow:
    not trying to be tacky or start issues, but why dont you just narrow or taper off the rear? I know it is more work in progress for ya, but I think it pays off in the long run. Just a suggestion though..
    I live in Arizona too and I wheel around whenever chance I get. I cant wait to turn my Blaze into a truggy after i bash up on some rocks or roll the ****er down the hill!!:haha:
