Question about 2000 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab
Need to replace front passenger fender. Hit tree stump in road and had to replace radiator and support for it but when we try to replace the fender, it sticks up about 2 to 3 inches and the hood hits it in one place. Is there a special way the fender should be put on?
My son went around a curve one night and hit a tree stump that was in the middle of the road. It put the front bumper under the truck, busted the radiator, the framing brace that supported the radiator and the A/C condenser. There was even wood in the frame from the impact. He also needed to replace a fender from a previous accident. After getting everything installed on the engine, they had a problem putting the fenders back on.
The passenger's side fender fit perfectly except where the hood was hitting in one spot. The fender was about 2 to 3 inches too high and the guys were threatening to take a hammer and beat it down. But after getting a stronger light and searching the frame of the truck from all angles, they found out there was still one bolt that needed to be removed. Once it was removed, the fender went on smoothly. They didn't get to use the hammer like they were threatening!
