I just dented my tailgate this morning. My condo parking sucks and barely supports a Honda Civic let alone a CC Titan. Backing into my space I found out the 6 ft snow banks (which now make my parking lot suitable for a Smart Car) are much more solid than they were a few weeks ago thanks to the latest round of freezing rain and cold temps.
Anyway, the dent is just below the tailgate handle shroud. Not a horrible disfigured or hugely pushed in dent but enough to notice. The raise portion of the tailgate which surrounds the shroud is now flat. I'm not sure if it can even be fixed without getting a new tailgate and just pounded out.
My question is, if it can't be pounded out do I have to buy a whole new tailgate or do they sell just the outer skin? Which ever of the three options it requires I'm gonna pay for regardless but until I make it to a bodyshop I just want to know what I'm in for price wise from a body shop. The good part of the story is I can just leave the tailgate with the shop and not be w/o my truck for a week.
