Oops .. bent my truck bed

Well, I should have known better. Sat a 1500lb load of tiles on a skid onto my truck bed. Typical plastic deep groove bedliner. I thought about roping up the skid so it would not slide but then thought ... no, I will go slow.

As you guessed, the entire load slammed into the front bed bending it into the cab. Any of you know or have ideas on how to bend the bed back?

Thanks to all you guys suggestions ... I got it done. A buddy and I were going to go at it with C clamps and straps but I jumped up there and muscled it out. Now I have to take the back rest off the back of the cab and bend it back a bit. I guess I will do a linebacker move on it. Hope I don't break the rear window.
