Hello, I did some serious wheeling and banged up my drivers side wing. If anyone on the East Coast have one in fair to good condition that is selling one please contact me. Thanks

Check with SafariHP - let's see some pics of this wheeling though. You should buy two of each while you're ordering, and get them all painted at once, as it WILL happen again. RoversNorth may still sell the ABS ones, which are a little more forgiving to the touch than the aluminum ones.

Wow! The price is right. Now, I hope that I lose the bid on eBay.

Oh, you'll need the whole wing. I thought you just tapped the outer skins. This is when a full bull bar is useful, instead of just a blade bumper. There are some full wings for sale in the parts section here, but your cost to repair just went up a few hundred bucks - I think tomaco1 has a pair still, but they have a cut-out for the heater. Did you hit a tree? Let's see the tree.

How did you know that I hit a tree? Man you are good. I don't have pic of the tree. It was very icy mud up there. At night it was 19 degrees. My sleeping bag was 30 degree - 60 degree and we were very cold.

I lost the bid on eBay and brought this wing. The total came up to $180.00. My mechanic/ body man told me that if I get the outer part if the wing he could reconfigure the whole thing. He's going to charge me about $400 to do it. He said that it is a lot of work. I'm not going to have him paint it because I was thinking about changing the colour if the truck to a lighter blue. Josh, thanks a lot. You're the best.

You should buy an entire wing not the part that you posted. You are going to spend more to try and fix the damage to the front and top that the wing would cost you.

Toms painter kiwi does a good price. If you get the whole setup you could get it painted and bolt it up yourself. That would save you a lot of money for what is essentially undoing and doing up bolts.

x2. When I posted those links I thought you only needed the outer skin, but like I said you should just buy an entire wing. You can get an entire wing for $500 or so if I recall and paint it to match. That sounds better than paying your guy $400 to fill it in with bondo.

It's been weeks since I brought the wing from Safari Heritage and I have not heard anything or received the package. They received the payment on May 3,2013.

If you look at the thread they started, they've been moving facilities and just finished the move this week I think.

Thanks

I still think they should have communicated to me in one form or another. They gladly accepted the funds.

Thank you for your help.
