 I use a sprinkler also for removing the mud and dirt underneath my rig.

You can always use a body dolly kit to fix some of the rocker damage.  Another alternative would be to cut a length of 2x4 and use that as a block to help beat it out some.  You'll likely have to pull the seat, lift the carpet and move the wiring harness that runs down that side.  A block of wood will enable you to distribute the load more and reduce the probability of going out to far in one section. 

I've done this before and it worked pretty well.  However, the damage I repaired wasn't as bad as yours.  The good news is you only have to get close enough to install the rocker guards.  If you go the route of the rocker and flak-jacket let me know.  I have a nutsert install tool that makes the job super easy.  Your welcome to use it if you want.

I will take you up on that!

That looks awesome! Are those aluminum door skins?

Yes. Although they're a bit expensive they're one of my favorite mods. Makes the 1/2 doors feel much more solid.

If I remember correctly this section is largely sealed and there's no room to get in behind it.  To make it worse, inside, near the drivers foot, is double walled.  The bulk will have to be done with a slide hammer.  Rather than drilling, use a stud welder to pull the dents.  I've not used one of this brand, but this one is cheap and seems to work decent for your needs.

Thanks Rich.  Took some more images from various angles to better show where I'm at.  You're right about the sealed panel being tricky to get to, and a stud welder-style puller may end up working better if this rocker is strong enough to the point where I will continue to yank screws out with the non-weld puller.  What's really interesting is how little damage appears to have impacted the inside of the Jeep.  I sure can feel the draft through that door on days like today, though. 

What I will probably do first is bend back the Bedrug and the little plastic interior trim piece, heat the rocker, and see if I can get anything to bend with some wood, prybars, and a crowbar.  If that fails then I will move on to a decision about tooling up to fix this.
