Huge dent in bed (Jack Knifed)

*UPDATE: SO FAR I PAINTED IT THE FACTORY COLOR. DECIDING TO CLEAR COAT MYSELF OR A SHOP DO IT????.*

So when I bought my truck not long ago I had to deal with the previous owners trailer back up problem. So my question is...How do I get the son of a gun knocked out. I was tempted to use a big effing hammer but honestly this is my first good body work of this nature. I'd like to put new flares on but this huge thing kind of inhibits that. Doesn't have to be perfectly flat and flush, but would like it to look like there isn't a big dent from afar. I don't want to bring it to a body shop cause this is how you learn to do things yourself. Awesome site by the way. i have been on here none stop. I'm addicted so far.

Im not an expert ,but it looks like there was some damage that has already been fixed. Looks like a lot of bondo in there now. I would order new bed skin and fix it my self, then take to body shop get them to respray that fender for like 1/3 of the money...

no bondo actually. I looked on the back side of the metal and saw no damage that would indicate previous work. It's really the only thing that bothers me about the truck.

Argh! I just moved from Chesapeake, VA. (Really , like not very long ago) About couple hours south of Richmond. I'm in Augusta, GA now. I really appreciate the offer too.

You could posibly rent a stud welder and a slid hammer and get 95 % of it out .Then all you will have to is spread very little body filler to get it back slick. BAH will cause way more damage in the long run than it is worth.

Okay. See I kind of figured a hefty hammer would do more damage. Now I have a 220v MIG welder myself. Is there anything I can utilize what I have now. I always need accessories to buy. That's how we all accumulate the tools right?
