I can't help you with the dent repair, but a slightly different attitude about it has helped me deal with my dented tailgate. I just think of my dents as protection against tailgate theft. No one wants to steal a tailgate that's all dented!

Talking Re: anyone know how to get little dints out?

depends on how deep you could try a really hot blowdryer or maybe one of those hot air guns for applying car vinyls,get the spot all around dint really hot about an inch or so around it then quickly rub ice on it or a rag twisted up with ice cubes make sure tailgates in a 70 area so the heat up n cooling the metal off quickly works better.
