2009 Dodge Ram 1500: Tailgate Dings

February 17, 2010


So I'm walking around the back of our 2009 Dodge Ram yesterday and found this quarter-sized ding in the tailgate. We don't own this truck, so we'll have to fix it before the loan ends. Personally,Iconsider damage like thisa badge of courage. To me it says, "Hey, I use my truck like it was intended. I load stuff. I unload stuff.Sometimesthat means I'm going to bang up the tailgate."

But what if you owned it? Is a tailgate ding something you would repair?
