LR4 Hood Aluminum?

Is the LR4 hood aluminum? I need to pop a dent out from a hickory nut. Trying to figure out if it can be fixed. It's right at one of the hood braces, so that kind of sucks.

The LR3 hood is and at the time, the largest aluminum stamping in the auto industry (or so I read). Would assume the LR4 hood is the same, but don't know for sure.

A magnet is an easy way to find out.

Good call on the magnet. LR dealer told me tonight it's not aluminum. We're about to find out. I will post result.

Survey says, the hood is aluminum. Crap.

I am not surprised by the dealers response, or the fact that it is actually aluminum.
