Body damage is sweet

You could always try to hammer it back out, it's not like it's going to get alot worse or anything. Worse comes to worse hang some new fenders and call it good.

my front fender is also dented from wheeling. im afraid of buying a used fender for fear it will not match in color and look like poo. but mine is a DD and the dent isnt TOO noticeable but beats an unmatched fender. i say trim, if its tolerable, leave it. if not try to fix the dent to the best or your ability. and if that doesnt work, get another fender to replace it

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

My POS

You should lift your XJ dents usually match better with a lifted rig.
Also another reason to upgrade. haha
I would just leave it. My fenders are mangled but you cant tell too much from 25 ft!
