    The brackets are different lenghts dependng on frame widths of different trucks. If you bent an ear you can hammer it back into position, if you bent the center bar back, order a new one, and replace it when you got time. As long as the plow locks into place you are OK for now.

    Don't heat it. It will weaken it. Is one of the hooks bent of the actual cross bar that the hook are welded to bent?
