Thumbs up Dent in roof about softball size

So the wife used the truck to help a buddy move a couch while I was on deployment and I noticed the other day that there was a dent in the roof that looked like someone braced themselves on it get the couch in the bed. I looked at prices for dent removal and the softball size dent was going to cost at least $150. I didn't want to pay that much and my wifes input was to ignore it. I wasn't going to do either so I decided to look at suction cups to try and pull the dent out then I saw the 3M sticky hooks at ACE hardware and the light went off in my head. So I picked up a 2 pack of hooks and it came with 4 double sided sticky strips and after washing the truck I took one and stuck it right in the center of the dent and pulled up. The dent came right out with minimal effort and Im happier than a pig in S#*! mostly because it was gone and I didn't pay $150. I suggest anyone who has a dent try it because the doublesided tape pulls right off when you pull the tab to remove the hook and leaves no residue.

That or hear up around the dent with a hair dryer. Moving it around without focusing it on one spot. Once it's warm hit it with a can of compressed air turned upside down. Should pop right out. Look at the videos on YouTube.
