I'm no body guy but I have done some body work. The problem with a dent that deep/big is that the metal has stretched and to get it back and straight it almost always takes some body work. That said, you can make it look better than it is if you take your time with a body hammer and a dolly.

Good luck!

I'll tackle anything mechanical on my truck. However, paint and body...take it to a paintless dent repair place and see what they can do. You might be surprised.
