Is there any kind of vibration at: normal speeds, accelerating, stopping, slowing, over bumps, at highway speeds? I guess you lost the small lead weights added by the car dealer or tire dealer to balance your wheels. Go back and get your wheels rebalanced.

I’m not sure what you’re asking us to help you with. The only thing that can be done is to have the wheel well tacked back together by a weld shop or body shop and have the chassis inspected from underneath to be sure there’s nothing unusual going on. Obviously, a bit of touchup bdoy and paint work will need to follow the tack welding.

Did you buy this used? If so, the possibility of it having been in an accident exists. That doesn’t help fix it, but it might explain it.

I heard the manufacture of your truck was building such poor vehicles that they went bankrupt, now we know both issues are true.
