Bent running board

Ok so i bent my running board a couple months ago on a rock. well i finally got around to getting it off and i am trying to think of a way to bend it back, but nothings coming. Its not that bad, but it needs to be done. any ideas?

I just put jack stands underneath the brackets and took a bar and bent it back down. Done it 3 times now with no problems

or just take those ugly ***** off and leave them off.

These are the only factory step bars I like. They're on my dad's '08 B4000.

the problem with taking them off and leaving them off is that instead of dealing with a bent running board i would be dealing with a dented up rocker panel.
