Paintless dent repair advice
 
I picked my ordered Overland up at night (I know a mistake) and didn't notice a minor ding/dent on the crease in the drivers rear quarter panel right about 8" in front of the fuel door. Lucky for me the dealership is making good and said their dent guy will be at the dealership this thursday and will work on my dent.

Is there anything I should be aware of? Can they repair a dent in a crease from the outside, or will then need to go in from the inside? Do these guys usually do a good job? Do they usually have the tools to remove panel clips correctly? Should I try to get jeep service to remove any panels instead of the dent guy?

Professional ppl will repair perfectly at 100%.
They will remove inside panel, they works with special tools from inside and outside too.
Than You cannot see where it was.
Dont worry.

I had a nasty crease above a front wheel on the bend (from a grocery cart?) and two small door dings. The paintless dent removal guy who had a lot of experience (dents and hail damage experience) did a perfect, flawless job for under $200 buck in under an hour. I was amazed. He had additional lights too to see from different angles. I would recommend him to anyone in the Miami Beach area. Even in bright sunlight from viewing from various angles it looks perfect....

Yes paintless dent repair guys DO AMAZING work!!! There is nothing you should be aware of just let them do their thing and you should be 100% satisfied when they are done. Plus your doing the right thing by getting it done without body work. Nothing would be worse than to have a brand new car that has had body work or a repainted panel. You can always tell when a entire car or body panel has been painted (and thats not a good thing).

Just to give you an example a girl I dated years ago found a nice clean 2001 Civic at a dealership. Turned out the entire car, literally every body panel had hail damage. Somehow, and it still amazes me how they did this, but they had a paintless dent repair guy do the entire car...tons of small dings and I couldnt believe my eyes after he was done. Looked 100% like a new car and I am very picky when it comes to stuff.

Moral of the story, you will be happy when you get it back!

Last year my home got peppered with 2"+ hail. I got a new roof for my house and both mine and my wifes car got PDR. My car had over three dozen serious hits including around a sun roof and edges. All were fixed by PDR. A flat surface is a piece of cake.

If you get a chance search the internet for the history of PDR. It was created/invented by Mercedes back in the days of hand built coaches as a way to work out the minor imperfections as part of the final QC. They actually invented the tools that are still in use today. Pretty interesting reading if you can find the right articles.
