Body damage

I need some help before I spend the money at a body shop. I backed into a tree after wheeling last weekend and now have a good size dent. Id like to try to pop it back out myself, but am not very familiar with this kind of body work. Does anyone know any tricks? It doesnt have any creases or chipped paint. It looks like a softball was pressed against it. I have a picture below.

Try going to Pep Boys or your local auto parts store. They should have body repair kits. In particular there is a suction cup device that you attach to the dent, apply suction and gently pull the dent out. It should work as long as there are no hard creases. That would save you buku bucks and give you a tool for future dents.
Hope this helps.

Re: Body damage

^doubt those will work. I tried it once and total BS.(it cost like$20? so idk if we are talking about the same thing) good thing i was able to return it.

I never done it so idk if popping it back out will cause any other problems but from the looks of it, i think i would start by popping the plastic liftgate panel and see if you can get access through that.

I tried just tried one of the suction ones, it didn't do anything. I'm gonna remove the panel tomorrow and see what's back there. I'm hoping it doesn't have another piece of metal blocking it.

Re: Body damage

Maybe try opening th liftgate to remove the inside plastic and possibly trying to "bang" it out with a rubber mallot?

Re: Body damage

Step away from the Jeep!! If you try and pop the metal from the inside you will stretch the metal and never get it right. Trust me done that before. Look online or in your phone book for a paintless dent repair service like Dentmaster or Dent Wizzard. They can drill a small hole from the side panel and push out most or all of the dent if it is not creassed very bad. You can call any used car dealer and they will give you a number to call for the service they use. It will cost from $60 to $75 dollars, but be alot cheaper than a body shop and only take about half an hour. I had it done on the tailgate of my 08 Wk and it looks great.

Re: Body damage

Take a heat gun, or a blow dryer and circle around the area and then take a can of compressed air, and flip it upside down and spray it, this should let the dent pop out, i'll find a video one minute
