Bumper Dent Help

I had a full size Jeep rear end me when I was stopped on the trail. Thankfully nobody was hurt, but I’ve got a good dent in my rear bumper. The bumper hasn’t deformed, but I’m concerned that the dent will weaken it.

Can I weld fill it and still retain strength? Or does the tube need to be cut out, replaced, and sleeved?
