      Angry Curb damaged rocker panel

      Hey all,

      Apparently I didn't go wide enough and cut a parking lot curb on my car. Can anyone tell me how much this will be and how to best go about this? Should I take it to the dealer or a body repair shop?

      I'd just go get some estimates. Im not a collision person but i'd assume they will probably use those weld on studs that utilize a slide hammer to pull it out, then smooth is out with some filler and paint.

      Yeah, just went to one body shop and they ball parked me $1,250. And here's a cleaned up look of it. I hate Dodge in how they sell this part. $550+ for a whole fucking side panel just to cut a couple inches of rocker panel.

      Different places quote different things. I say look around, and it might depend on your area too. What general are are you in?

      Would this be less or more than your insurance deductible??

      Go through them. I'm not sure if your insurance would go up. Mine sure did when I effed my car up, but I had a passenger too so that may be why.
