My first brand new car that I bought in College was sitting in my driveway after 2 months of owning it. It was beat on by hail for about 10 minutes and the entire hood, roof, and trunk looked like it was orange peel.

I didn't do much about it and it bugged me every single day for he 6 years I owned it. If you can't see it, that is good, but if you can I would try getting it fixed. If you are meticulous it will bug the hell out of you.

Yes, I got very lucky to the people an hour south of me. I want to be the first one to say I have NOTHING to complain about. Some hail dents, yes I have some , in my truck is NOTHING compaired to the people who lost family members and their houses. My heart absolutely broke for the toddler that was found out in a field. I couldn't read the story, but it looks like she survived and her family didn't.
That is an excellent point hunter. I have so much to be thankful for and I do try to remember what is really important in life. I am so embarrassed about how I acted back in college when my mom dropped a rake on my brand new trans am. IT'S JUST A CAR. It can be repainted and repaired. Be a better person and realize this. How you act towards others and having your priorities right are more important.
Sorry, just venting on myself.

I realize it's not a huge deal, more of a "aagghh dang" kinda thing during the hail and I know no one was bagging on me.
I did check and I have about 10 little dings in my hood and about 20 on my roof. 3 on my hood and 5 on the roof are visable from 6 feet. The rest you have to get down and look down the sheet metal.

Anyone tried the dry ice trick or should I just take it to a paintless dent pro?

first, my point was how lucky you were not to be hit by tornadoes, not to minimize any damage to your truck. it would piss me off. now, i would let insurance handle it and get it fixed by a pro.
