Default 2000 XLT Front Bumper

Just bought a 2000 XLT in pretty good shape but I'm considering replacing the front bumper.

The driver side corner of the bumper has been pushed in from some kind of fender-bender by one of the previous owners. It's probably a inch or two pushed in from the front fender (which has no damage) and I just want it to match up. There's also some rusting on it, which is why I want to replace instead of having it pulled out (if that's even possible). The valance appears to have been replaced and is in good shape, and the fogs work.

How difficult is it for me to replace this bumper? Would there be any issue with the air bag sensors or anything like that? Trying to avoid the shop if it's something I can do. I'm not a "car guy" but my bro-in-law is good with these type of things, and has the garage and tools.

Thanks!

Well I was going to just buy an OEM or aftermarket bumper for the 2000 XLT, and replace/discard the pushed in bumper... any thoughts?
