I'm a menace.

Forgot to close tailgate on truck. Wrecked front baggage door. Any ideas where to find replacement? My wife says I'm a menace.....

I would call Crossroads and have them send out a replacement, then auto body for paint to match...I don't know if after market sell replacement doors or not...Or take it to an auto body shop and let them fix it...IMHO...

I thought I would check here before calling CR. There is a part number on it and it says tan, so hopefully won't have to paint.

I called Crossroads. They told me I had to go through my local dealer. I contacted CW. The door is $237.08. The door has to be ordered from the factory, may need to be made. I expected it to cost between $100 and $250.

The cost for shipping is up to $200! That's crazy. I think that is excessive.

Anyone have any other suggestions for a type of place that could possibly do the repair? I think I'm going to end up using some thin diamond plate and maybe spray painting it beige/tan as close to the color of the body as possible. What a racket.

If the panel is still flat, use body filler to repair it. Then take it to an autobody shop for the final paint coat. I'm sure they could get pretty close in the color match.

Part of the panel is torn out. The foam core is broken. The inner white backing is in-tact. Figure I can use that as template to cut out new front piece if I have to.

I'd take it apart, replace the foam, add the aluminum you mentioned without paint (paint doesn't adhere well to aluminium), after towing a while that front will be full of small rock chips from your tv anyway.
If you don't like that look, go to your local LineX dealer & have them spray the lower 3'+/- with color matched bedliner, no more rock chips.

I would take it, or a picture of it, to your local auto body shop and get an estimate...
