Need straight front wings

the front wings on both sides of my truck are dented in It is the panel that houses the headlights and holds the headlight trim. Is this one panel replaceable or do I need a whole wing? Is there a good parts source out there that is not going to charge 4 or 5 hundred bucks? I dont need a new one just one that is not dented

The front panel is a separate piece from the top and side panels, they screw together. If you go for new, be sure you get the version that has the headlamp mount, otherwise it's quite a bit more work to replace (AMHIK).

I replaced one about 2 months ago, it was screws all the way around. Maybe NAS trucks got rivets.

Funny you said that, I replaced 1 ROW and 1 NAS in the last 3 months and both were riveted and replaced Shrek's ( 83 ROW ) 2 years ago and was riveted as well
