Unhappy Control arm bracket damage, how bad is this one?

I went on the K-Trail in Oklahoma last weekend and it looks like I took a hit to my passenger rear lower control arm bracket (frame side). I haven't noticed any issues while driving, but this looks pretty bad to me. Should I take it in for repair?

I wouldn't worry about it. Get a flatbar and a hammer and pry it back into place. I wouldn't suggest using heat because you could melt the bushing. Doesn't look like a big deal to me.

I see on the pic the control arm looks scraped underneath. Cant tell from the pics, but just make sure its not bent.
