    Definitely at least talk to a local PDR company.

    PDR was able to fix this dent in my GF car from a door that opened into her (wind caught the door). I was expecting the PDR guy to say no, but he said no problem, and he got it out like it didn't even happen... I was shocked.

    Depending on your PDR guy that’s looks like a $300-500 repair and if you don’t like it’s a conventional paint repair on top of that. And a good paint shop is gonna want to blend into the cab.

    The dent in my GF car was $800, and 2 days of work for the PDR guy. Biggest reason she went PDR was because her car is black, and the body shop was going to take all the trim off, and blend into adjoining panels.

    PDR was so much less invasive, and after seeing this guy's magic, I am definitely sold on PDR for any dents.

    Try heating it up and see if you can pull the wheel well liner out and reach up and push it out. Or even if you can get a small mallet up there. If not PDR.
