Default Straightening the frame

So I screwed up pretty bad and was hoping for a little advise from some of you experts. I was in the process of retrieving a deer this weekend and ending up really sticking my cart pretty badly, to the point that it barely came out with my truck. Long story short, it was buried perpendicular to the narrow narrow road and so I had to pull it from the side with a rope hooked to the heavy duty rear rack I built on the back. basically it bent the mounts that rise up off the top of the frame where the rear body connects..near the supper shock post I believe. My question is, what is the best way to straighten aluminum or can it be done.? Should I be looking for a donor frame at this point? I'd say it's about 3" out of square...

Do you have a contact at a auto body shop? It's an easy fix for someone familiar with an automobile frame machine.

It can be fixed!
My buddy's kids ran his into a tree, hard. He took it to a automotive frame shop.

Well that's good to know. I guess everything has to be stripped off first. That's what I'm dreading the most...

Aluminum is much harder to fix than steel. Bending aluminum really weakens it.
