Removing a damaged fender on your GMC Sierra can help improve the appearance of your truck. The fender acts to protect important internal parts of your truck, such as engine components and electronics. In minor accidents, sometimes the only damage is to the fender of the truck. The fender can be replaced easily by a novice in 40 minutes. The removal requires no particular expertise and can be done in your own garage or driveway.
