Depends on what's wrong. If you brought it to my shop and we had to cut and re fiberglass and repaint you're looking at anywhere from $600+.

And the rangers out of commission for a while.

I thought you were talking a complete repaint as well. To trim and blend probably 300-500 depending on how much work is required. We won't touch anything for under 300.

Why not run it to your third break light then it will have the same characteristics.

I would leave it be. I messed around with what I thought was extra on my shell and then it started leaking by the tailgate.
