    No, I mean, it really dropped. It was jacked up on a crappy 2 ton hydraulic jack when it slipped off. I had the jackstand under the fender for the time being because it wasn't high enough to fit under the frame and when the truck dropped, the fender landed right on the jackstand.

    Lesson learned: Don't trust a jack, always use jackstands.... correctly. :eek:

    Luckily, after a few very persuasive kicks, the fender is back in line. And the rim is fine as well. No bends or cracks of any kind.

    I would put some taller tires on there. Those are awful low profile! :D

    As long as no one got hurt, thats all that really matters. Body damage can be fixed.

    as long as you mean on the car, and this will stop me from half placing the jackstand under the car before placing under the frame. And were you not on the reconended "diamond" jacking location
