confused F-150 frame repairs

Hello,
I am a first time user. I have a 03 F=150 Lariat long bed. I backed into a tree and hit the trailer hitch exactly center. Bend frame behing the rear axel. Pushed it down. Caused some body damage to bed. Dealer says No Fix. How can I repair this frame and continue using my great truck?

Re: F-150 frame repairs

how far did it push it down i can't amagine it would be that much to the point the you couldn't drive it, unless you were doing over 30 when you hit the tree, only other option i could suggest it take it to a body shop that has a frame machione. or you could do it your self but you probably dont have the tools to do it. if you did want to do it yourself there are two options 1 remove the bed, fuel tank, spare tire suppurt the rear of the frame and use a tourch and hammer and try to straighten it. 2 cut it off after the bend go to the junk yard find one if you can. and weld the pieces together and plate it on both sides of the frame. but i would try the frame machine first. they should be able to do it for you.
