Default Deer vs. Ranger

An apparently suicidal deer jumped in front of our 2001 Ranger the other night. (There's about a gazillion deer in the Texas hill country) He very cleanly took out the driver's side headlight and corner light, and left the truck with a damaged grille assembly and header panel. This looks to be a fairly straightforward repair, but any tips or expertise would be greatly appreciated!

Any recommendations or places to avoid for aftermarket parts? The prices vary widely for a header panel, for example. I don't want to get something that is so off in fit that it is unusable.
