97 ZJ crash parts??

I'm looking for the correct name of this particular part. It is the metal bracket thats is found welded under the plastic bumper cover, and foam absorber. A few diagrams I looked at on Jeep dealer parts web sites called it the front bumper bracket, is this correct? The diagram did not look like it is pointing to the right part. Any help is greatly appreciated, especially diagrams lol. My jeep was in a collision and I'm currently repairing it my self. Thanks again.

My FSM calls it the front lower crossmember.

quote from fsm
The Grand Cherokee front bumper is actually a bumper fascia incorporated with a lower welded crossmember. The lower crossmember is a fixed welded structure. To replace the crossmember a frame machine should be used to correctly align the crossmember to the unibody.

A frame machine is going to be used, but I need to removed the old front lower corssmember, use the frame machine to pull the frame rails straight (the two pieces of frame behind the Front lower crossmember) then weld on a new front lower crossmember. Can a new front lower crossmember be purchased? if so is there anyplace inparticular? Thanks.
