fender bender. help to take the bend out please.....

i was doing trail and i hit a large rock....more like a boulder, i bend my fender in pretty good, whats the easiest way for me to fix this? should i take it out heat and beat it or leave it in and try to bend it out that way? the bend is more towards the rear of my driver side fender panel. and what should i do to fix the top front of my hard top, the screws popped out, i put new ones in but i am getting leaks like theres no tomorrow. THANKS GUYS!!

Don't know about the hard top but I'd use a rubber mallet first. If that doesn't work, then try taking it off and use the mallet again. If that doesn't work, then try heating it. If all that fails, hit the junk yards and see if you can't just replace. How bad is that damage? After all, nothing wrong with a few battle scars. They give it character.
This is my signature.

That worked for me i ran over a twig...more like a small tree...and it whacked the inside of my fender pushing it out 4 inches. Long story short, my jeep took a beating in a good way.

All hail the mallet
