So I was driving on a really bad road a few days ago and there was a seirs of two dips I didn't see till it was to late. I was driving 30 and the two dips were both about 2 feet deep and a 1 1/2 long. When I hit them it was pretty intense and now the passenger quarter panel is shifted back slightly, which causes it to make a very loud noise when you open it. I was just wondering how bad the damage is and how/ what it would cost to fix it.

Classic example of a fender bulge. Search it on this forum an you will see lots of results and a few fixes. I'm surprised I haven't done this yet myself. I have tiny cracks in those areas on both of my fenders. This is actually common to see in 07-09 trucks that wheel a lot or see air time. As far as your fix, unfortunately its going to cost some dinero since its already pretty bad. Good luck OP! Keep us posted. :)

You shifted your fender back towards the door and who knows what else moved.
How does it drive? Surprised you didn't move some parts of your suspension and steering if you hit that hard.

Better go to a body shop and let an expert tell you.

When body panels move that much it usually gets expensive.

Looks worse than "fender bulge" that I have seen.
