Anyone have a donor wk?

Before I chop this mangled piece of and attempt to replace it with rectangular tubing I thought I would ask if anyone had a donor wk that they wouldn't mind cutting off this piece and selling it to me...

A good body man could give a slight pull with the frame machine and massage out the wrinkles then weld the tears. It will take a little heat with the torch while it is being straightened. It should be set up and measured anyway even if you find a front section. It could be out of square or even moved further back than what you are seeing.

The front section might even be available new from Jeep for repair section. Wouldn't hurt to have a shop look it up in the computer.

I followed the rail all the way back and I didn't see any crumples and there's no bowing of the quarter panel at the top or bottom. Hood fits properly, what I was told is that the previous owner had a minor accident hitting a truck that had a hitch on the back causing the resulting damage...

I might play around with it some and see if I can use some bending skills on it and get it back to somewhat of a shape
