Default Paintless Dent Repair on 2011 Tailgate?

I have a couple of indentations on the tailgate of my 2011 Ram 1500. I have the new light weight tail gate, can a PDR guy take them out? Is it a lighter gauge steel? I think if it's aluminum skinned the PDR might not work. Anyone have this type of repair done on the tail gate?

They can do it, especially if the tailgate has an access panel.

They have access through the full width panel on the inner part of the tailgate, where the tailgate handle is accessed from

The access pannel only allows access to the top 1/3-1/3 of the tail gate.

I have a dent near the bottom where that line in the tailgate goes as a "accent bend" as i call it and I didnt have access to push it out from behind

My buddy had a dent in his tailgate on his 2011 RT, from his sister punching it or something weird...lol

His friend does PDR and drilled a small (like 1/8"-1/4") hole on the jamb of the tail gate and removed the dent(don't know how) then plugged the hole with a rubber plug. You'd never notice it, plus it's in the jamb and plugged. Very professional.
