@maktruk That doesn't look too bad, I think that will buff right out. jk :grinning:
You may want to just push it out using hot water and or a heat gun. Check out the Youtube videos on how to remove dents from plastic bumpers.

That was exactly the pla n, just need to work on removing the fender liner, never done it before...

As to what happened, it was simply a really soft, sandy downhill slope with wooden posts on either side. I hit the brakes but I was in 4HI so the ABS was still active and decided I didn't need as much brake as I told it I did...

Getting to that point was tricky. My buddy has my DeWalt impact, so 24 breaker bar sessions and a few hi-lift sessions later, I was cleaning out and rotating all the wheels. The minute I dropped the last tire to the ground the rain started. WIN!
