Well since it is for mud bog purpose only, heat, comealong, a tree and a chain. Heat the frame where it is bent, hook a chain around a tree, hook the comealong to the chain and the frame. Use the comealong to pull on the frame while your heating it up with a set of torches. It will bend back straight. But how do you know that the rest of the frame is not bent. I would not be caught riding around in that truck even if it is in the mud only.

Bigcountry is right on the money. I've used the old come-along, tree, torch method and it usually works. If you keep dragging the truck through the mud with out getting a bend then the poor boy portapower works too. Just chain the frame to a tree at just behind the bend and use a highlift jack to push it over. A BFH will help with that pooched out section. It's not a bad idea to weld a little plate over the area you heated and bent to stiffen it back up a bit. Careful with that come-along cable and don't forget the six pack(s)!
