    My upper and lower control arms broke completely off and wheel hit the fire wall. Totally dented the drivers side floor in. Any advice on getting the dent out without going to a body shop and completly draining my bank account?

    Is it just that dent? Did it cause any other damage? Other then the floor? How's it inside the cabin with the rug still in place? Is it noticeable? If it was mine, and the dent wasn't noticeable with the rug in place I'd just leave it alone. If not, take the seat out, move the rug over and try hitting the dent with a small sledge, working it a little at a time. Just be aware of anything around where you're hitting it--wiring, fuel lines underneath etc. Don't go too crazy, you don't want to put a hole in the firewall/floorboard. How'd that happen btw?

    It very noticeable on the inside. The tie rod broke and pulled it to the left and hit a car which boke the control arms. Tonyrodz I've been thinking about just that. Grabbing a 30 pack a beer calling a buddy of mine and going hammer time sledgehammer crazy.

    Interesting rim and tire combo too. I like it! You look lowered. Nice.
