Xblade bent support?

    I'm looking at a truck that has an 2008 Fisher 8' Xblade with it. The "X" on the driver's side of the plow has a bend on the top part of the "X". The steel has warped away from the back of the molding but it is not cracked. Is this a huge problem or is it fixable by a welder? I have included a picture of the "bend". Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

    Beat it back with a hammer.

    Odd direction for a bend but it looks like it can be bent back into place without much trouble.

    No big deal. That's what happens to the X Blades. My 9' has some that are bent like that.
