Removing dent >=(

I came out of my college class today to discover some ******* had hit my truck when trying to pull in to a parking space

Luckily the paint wasn't broken.


There is now a golfball size dent in the lower rear corner of the truck. Is this something I can pull out myself, or should I go to an auto body shop? Picture below.

There seems to be a small access hole behind it. It's a very tough reach, as there isn't much room to maneuver underneath of the (crew) cab.

pay someone to do it right man! (i'm a claims adjuster) those suction things will work if you do it correctly - but that is a LARGE dent to try to pull -- it will likely need to be pushed from behind and they will drill a small hole if you let them and get the tool behind the dent and massage it out as far as they can - you would be surprised! I would try that first -- let a good PDR person local to you go at it.
