96 Cherokee front end damage

Hello all,

I hope I’m posting on the correct thread. I’m new to this site. I just recently purchased a project for my stepson and I. It has some minor front end damage from a deer collision. We got tearing into it today, and I realized there is some damage to the lower radiator support which also ties the frame rails to the front bumper. In addition, there’s also some damage to the driver’s side headlight support. (Excuse me not knowing the proper name for these parts). Anyway, I need to replace these parts, and I am wondering if anyone makes these aftermarket to order online? I could not find them anywhere. I circled the parts in red that I am looking for. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Many years ago I purchased a lower radiator support from the Dealership. Try checking some of the on-line Dealership parts websites such as www.wholesalemopar.com. Once you have the Chrysler part number you can Google it. Also try www.CertiFit.com

If you are on a seriously tight budget, you could remove the bent parts, hammer them back into shape, and re-use them. The headlight area parts only locate the fender and keep it from flapping in the wind, they are not structural. I have also bought used parts from the junkyard.

The other one is not a quick list item... most autp part suppliers have a help line and diagrams..

When I see the price of OEM I think aftermarket.
