Rock kicked up on highway - this is what it did
 
Not happy. It put a bubble dent in the front right above the "ee" in 'Jeep' and the two e's fell off. car is 2 months old.. should i bring it to jeep or a body shop to see if they can pull the dent out and then get the jeep logo online?

Where could i find the jeep logo anywho..

Yellow Pages. Paintless Dent Repair or Dent Master.
They use special tools to kick it out with out having to repaint your car.

You can get the Jeep decal from Justforjeeps.com. they should have it.

They may not be able to repair it with PDR in that location, I had a ding in a similar spot on an older car and it wasn't possible. Is the paint damaged at all?

Likely looking at a hood repaint...

It all depends if the location is reachable by the PDR bar. You are not that optimistic I can see that for sure.

buy bigger letters and cover it with them. :) :) :)

I have had a few dings pulled out with the dent repair places and it looked very good afterwards. good luck.

Absolutely it all depends on the location...I was just saying that I've had a dent in that location before and it was not possible. It also depends on the shape of the dent, weather the paint is chipped or cracked, and how much leverage they can get on it to work it back into shape.

PDR is great, but its not a miracle cure, and it can come out poorly too.

My optimism is tempered by experience, lets just put it that way.

To the OP, try and post a picture that will help us.

Maybe you can fall on the sword at your dealer and get the decal 'Jeep' under warranty.

Cant get it to post, the dealer said $475 to bond and repaint hood. There is a bit of rough on the paint but the "E" would cover it up I will try to upload again shortly
