There is absolutely no way to tell from a one dimensional picture if the frame is bent. Pictures of both vehicles showing the actual impact damage might help in a PRELIMINARY damage assessment.
Here is a link to some tried and true methods of "stringing a frame" that have been used by PROFESSIONALS for quite a while.
If you are so inclined, learn one or two ways and try them on your Wrangler. Otherwise, take your Wrangler to a frame shop that uses a laser guided frame machine and get the true measurements.
If it is bent (but not too much) the frame shop can pull it back to the point where the laser guides say it is true again.
