astroman54 will become famous soon enough

Personally, I would take the bumper off the truck, and try using mild heat (not enough to melt, but enough to make it more plyable). then try pushing the dent out from the back side. That will hopefully take the large ding out of it.. There may be a light wave in the surface after that.. Hopefully the heat will also let the plastic go back to it's original shape.. Again, don't use too much heat..

With it off the truck and straightened, then you can paint if needed without masking the whole truck for the overspray. Or you can take it somewhere and get it painted at a lower cost.

Good luck and let us know how you make out.
