DX3 Basement Door Repair

Welp... seems I got a bit TOO far off the beaten path this weekend. Rock reached out and grabbed a couple of my basement doors. Is this something you guys can replace / repair / provide? Maybe the service dealer in Elkhart?

Some recommendations would be great. Elkhart, IN is closer than any of the dealerships (I'm in SE Wisconsin).

Like the Jeep. We pull a yellow Unlimited.

Sorry about the basement doors. Hope they can fix them.

Nothing some duct tape and mallet won't fix. Ouch...its like the first door ding on a brand new car. You almost want to ding it yourself so you're not cursing the people that ding it and leave.

We can certainly get a replacement door/doors painted to match. Charger Enterprises is across the street. If we can squeeze it in here we certainly would. If there is no other damage, those doors should just pop off and new ones back on. I'll ask my people what they think.

If we're just shipping, we prefer to go through a dealer. They're set up to receive large parts, handle returns, repairs, etc. Too many bad experiences trying to get large parts done on a retail/residential level.

Let me know what you come up with. If they can get painted and the I show up Friday night for a Saturday install that'd be ideal from my end. I can probably look at leaving it for a week if that works better too.

And yea the first one does suck. Luckily it was on an awesome trip where all the fun outweighed the worrying.

I'll save the duct tape and mallet for the jeep....

FOURWHL, shoot me a PM with your VIN and contact info. I'll at least get the ball rolling.

(Looking on the bright side...no stripes on those doors, couldn't have hit it in a better spot)
