bending the front bumper?

how would i go about bending my front bumper to match my fiberglass fenders?
I have an '02 xlt so my bumper isn't as easy to flare out as the edge bumpers i've seen on here

Bottle jack maybe? Put one side on the bumper mount and the other side on the lip of the bumper. Or a comealong and a tree?

When I bent in the bumper on my F150 I fixed it with a bottle jack against the frame. Worked good.
