Frame attaching to bumper bent

Hello all,I just purchased a 2002 wrangler sport for a real good deal.IT is real clean except the front of the frame a few inches back from where it attaches to the front bumper is bent and sits higher then the other can see where it bent at.I was wondering if anyone else has seen this issue and what they drives good and straight.i was thinking about heating it up and bending it back?
Thanks again for any help!!

Took a front hit. Dont heat it up and try to straighten it. The alloys used today are very finicky. They only take so much heat for so long before their molecular compound is ruined. Let a body shop pull on it with their frame rack.
