Rear ended now runs rough


So yesterday my cousin came to my work to borrow my ranger for the day and backed into a concrete pillar. Not really a big deal and an honest mistake I later reviewed it on camera and it was not much of an impact.

There is a small dent in the bumper but what I am confused about is it idles rough now. The truck sounds like bass. To explain better when you are sitting at a stop light and a car around has a sub in it that bassey noise it makes. Some how my truck sounds like that now.

Also when taking off from first it has some resistance or drag it feels like i am pushing through something like light mud. There is no resistance once I have passed about 5kph.

What would be some good areas to start checking out to resolve this vibration and resistance?
