Before you attempt the repair yourself, you really should get in touch with the factory to see if they have any suggestions  They have straightened roofs for folks that did the same.

I did, they said that they can straighten it (although it won't be perfect). It is just difficult for me to try drive up to California.

They make deliveries to CO and WY all the time. Maybe you can arrange to meet them along the route for pick up and return. It's their truck and driver.

It's still a long drive, but I think the CO dealer does some repair work. Don't know about the WY dealer. Might be worth calling them to find out.

Can't really tell the extent of the bend you put in there, but I wonder if body repair tools would do the job. I mean one person inside holding a metal block against the roof while another hits from above with a rubber mallet. Tough if behind the roof panel though.
