Front Bumper Pushed In

Ever since I have owned my jeep, the drivers side of the bumper is pushed in. I always ignored his but now that I am mounting lights and such, I wanted to know how to fix this. Any help would be appreciated.

Pull the bumper off and look at the mounting brackets and the mounting points on the bumper, one or both are probably bent. You may be able to straighten them with some big channel-locks and a hammer. Or you can replace the damaged parts, bumpers and brackets are cheap (especially the brackets, <$10 ea.):
