I got attacked buy a Taco!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So me and my friend were out farting around in the trucks in the local hills today. My buddy was in his lifted TRD Taco and was backing up next to me to get ready to try a hill climb and while doing so he was paying more to me than were he was going and backed into my poor truck. Needless to say the Taco was the winner in the exchange but I am keeping my fingers crossed that this will just pop out, what do you guys think.

The dent free Taco

I made my buddy take this pick so you guys know who to stay away from and through eggs at.

a body shop will get that out no problem. Send a complaint to Toyota stating that his pedal got stuck in reverse and he panicked not knowing what to do. Then they'll have more crap on their hands

He said he would pay to fix it, but I know he is a little tight on funds so I will give it a shot first.

make sure you know what your doing, don't want to make it worse. First take some compound or scratch x to take out the scuffs. I don't think it would cost that much for a shop to take it out though.

My neighbor is in the dent repair busyness and did not recommend that I try to fix it myself. He was guessing that it would run about 150-200 bucks to fix.

I'd take his advice unless you have body work experience.

Yea he had BFG AT's and plenty of tread left. I fail to see how that would have prevented him from attacking my poor Ranger.
