    Remount the tire and it's safe to drive as-is.

    Fender is a bolt-on replacement. You can buy it pre-painted on some sites like Partify. For the rest, go get a quote from a PDR technician. Dents in the cab and bed side should be able to be popped out without much trouble by PDR technician. He may refuse to work on the door if there are bonded steel beams inside.

    Deal with the fluids, fill the tires, pull/bang out the dents so the door operates and drive it.

    If the frame is okay and the A pillars and roof aren't damaged I'd say keep it and fix it.

    I'd keep driving it.

    FWIW I almost did the same thing about a week ago. Was driving on a narrow, curvy rural road near home. It had rained the night before, but this was about 4 PM. The road was slightly wet. I approached a S curve and coasted through at about 20 mph. As I came out of the last curve I gave it a little gas and the rear end immediately fishtailed and got me sideways in the road.

    I tried steering into the skid, but it didn't help. I ended up spinning 180 degrees and off the road. Fortunately, I hit a spot with no real ditch, just a slight dirt bank. I got out and couldn't find any damage. Drove down the road a short distance where I could turn around and continued on my way. Was only a couple of miles from home.

    My TPMS light did come on and when I got home, I found the right rear tire only had 10 PSI. I aired up and it is still holding air 10 days later. I suspect the bead came off temporarily when that tire slid into the bank and then resealed.

    I was luckier than you. Sometimes it doesn't take much on wet pavement and off road tires aren't the best on wet pavement.

    fix it and drive it. I wish that I had a photo of my 74 Ford F100. The only part of the truck not dented was the drivers side front fender. The truck looked like shit. but I did a very cheap overhaul, new pistons and rings, re honed the cylinders and had the head rebuilt. It ran like a scalded dog for a 300 straight six with big 1 barrel carb. You could try deflating a football or basketball to pop the dents out of the rear of the cab.

    Check the grass coming out of the bead on the front wheel...

    I'd get those two wheels/tires remounted and balanced. I'd worry about a bent axle flange, but otherwise, drive on!

    Its looks to me like the driver rear wheel is damaged, or maybe the hub.
