I think one of my friend's did mine when they helped me take my doors off.

I do them alone now.

Also, on mine, I think the antenna is in the way of the passenger side?

I was putting on seat cover last weekend on my new 2012 and un-hooked the door. I forgot to hook it back up and later discovered my nice new dimple

Leave it to the pros

There's an art and science to it. Even a small dent basically stretches the metal and you have to gently finesse it back. Its well worth paying a "dent doctor" to fix it right and very easy to screw up it you try it yourself.

Why do you guys have the straps off so much? If I'm taking a door off, I unstrap it, and pull off the door. Do you guys like unstrap a door, leave it open, then go unstrap the other side? Do you guys only take your doors off in wind storms? Maybe it'll happen to me, but after a few years of owning wranglers it hasn't yet. Hmm.

It happened to me because I unhooked it while detailing the interior. I wasn't ready to take the door off; just wanted a little extra room to maneuver. And suddenly BAM I had the idiot dimple.

I got my jk dimple while installing my A pillar switch pod. Removed strap to get a lil more room and let it go, realized my mistake but too late. Passenger side is dimple free (for now). Got a $150 repair estimate so I'm living with it. I've seen the covers but I personally think they would stick out more then the dent on my silver JK

Did it to my wife's JKU last week...

Actually, I told her and she proved once again why I love her so much... she said "that's alright, it's a Jeep... it adds character"

Got a dent in my silver JKU also, and plan to leave it. Replacing doors last summer after wheeling, and forgot the strap for just a second. Badge of honor, or shame.

The dealer put matching ones in my JK when it went in for its free detail they gave us when we bought it new (not sure why a brand new jeep needed a full detail but it did come back smelling fabulous and very clean - we had it about a month before we had time to schedule it in). The guy who did the detail undid the doors to really clean it out and must not have noticed he dented it when they swung open. I pointed out the issues, they arranged to have it fixed and from the amount of time and the repainting it took (it was gone five days in their body shop) I think they messed it up the first time and had to redo it so mine must not have been a simple pop out event. I do know that they had to paint the pieces so maybe they just replaced them on mine?
