Default Backed Into Car With My Ram And Bent Exhaust Pipe. Help Please!

Well i backed into a little car with my ram 1500 and i happened to just put an exhaust on no less than a month ago. It bent the passenger side exhaust a few inches down.

What can i do to fix this? I am probably going to have to end up taking it to a shop and get them to unbend it but would just heating it with a torch and bending it be alright since it isn't bent a whole lot?

What can i do here?

If its just bent down you can use a crow bar and bend it back into place. Ive been gulty of having it do that after I slid my car into a ditch.

We already tried to bend it back up but that thing isn't moving. I been told it is bent in the middle, not the far end.

Alright, thanks for the idea. I'm taking it tonight to see what the guy that put it on can do and how much it would cost. I'll let him know about this.
