Kodiak 400 hitch problem

I bought this 4x4 with the hitch receiver installed already. It's tilted at a downward angle. The receiver mount isn't broken or or cracked anywhere. Is there any way to.adjust it. Itsboltedtothe axle and there doesn't seem to be any way to move it around. BTW, it's a 400 4x4.

Bend the add on reciever hitch up and bolt it back on. That was meant for a all not an add on reciever. Slight angle on a ball wouldn't really matter, but the bolt on reciever really magnifies the angle

Heat the tang on the extender and bend it up.
If you heat the stock mount to bend the temper will be soft.
It does look like the stock mount has a slight bend near the ball hole, you may want to consider a new stock ball mount; I couldn't find it online, you may have to ask a dealer about availability.
Being it’s bent it’s already lost some integrity. If you have access to a welder and some plate . Then heat it bend it back straight , weld a plate from front to back on the receiver drill your hole for the bolt , done.
