Default FML - broken door

i was trying to pull up on some ramps i have so i could get under my truck to put in my new HID's for my foglights, and my truck slipped and i had the pass door open and it hit my rv, bending the **** out of the metal surrounding the door latch. It will not latch at all, i can play with it by hand and get it to latch (not catch on the bar on the cab).

Aybody know if i need a new door, or just need to replace the locking mechanism? ive played with all the parts of it, pulling the handle up with the latch closed and the door unlocked will let the latch down, but barely, unlike the driver side does when i pull the handle, and it comes down all the way. I straightened the metal as best i could (for how bent it was, i think i did pretty well). my door doesnt appear to be bent, the body lines on it match up with my fender and the rest of the cab.

That fuckin sucks. Go price out a new door. Not sayin you'll need it but it would be nice to know how much one would cost.
